    Default If Corporations Get a Tax Cut, We Want a Raise

    Signed!!!

    President Donald Trump and his economic advisers have said over and over again that if the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passes, corporations will use the money from their tax cut to raise wages an average of $4,000. Companies such as AT&T have echoed the claim, saying businesses will use the tax cut to create jobs and provide higher wages for employees.

    But most economists think that instead of raising wages and creating jobs in the U.S., corporations will use the tax cut to buy back their own stock or pay dividends to shareholders, and will use new loopholes in the bill to send even more jobs overseas.

    Let’s hold them to their promises. Sign the petition to say you want them to guarantee the wage increase in writing.

    But...the bit about 'JOBS' is ALWAYS a Lie...When the Parasites say 'JOBS'...They are thinking PROFITS...DIVIDENDS...SHARE BUY-BACKS...and EXECUTIVE REMUNERATION...If any jobs incidentally materialize...They are CRAP...LOW-PAID...Indentured Servitude type 'JOBS'...And now that Corporations are awash in more cash,they will acquire other Corporations which usually results in more JOB LAY-OFFS...In fact,according to the National Bureau of Economic Research study published in 2015,there is little evidence to even support the claim that Corporate tax breaks boost employment...The talk of raising taxes is not taxes on Corporations...It's taxes on US to pay for their tax breaks...The FEAR...UNCERTAINTY...and lack of Confidence in the FUTURE is Felt by ALL Americans as well as Retirees...NOT by Multinational Corporations that are AWASH in Cash and getting their taxes reduced from 35%(which few pay anyway)to 20%.

    Okay I read it and signed it but I do have a question about it.Now say these companies do share the profits due to the tax cuts and give thier employees a raise what would happen if the Democrats return to power back and raise all the corporate taxes. Do these companies then have the right to reduce employee compensation??

    Just like waiting to see if the new tax plan actually increases the deficit and gives the wealthy a larger tax cut then the middle class.
    Could we then take back the gifts we gave the wealthy and the corporations ?
    Let's wait and see now. The pump has already been primed.

    Speaking of the pump, when will the FEDERAL tax hike at the fuel pumps to pay for the infrastructure projects go into effect?

    Soon as they set up the offshore oil rigs off every US coast. Can anybody say Deepwater Horizon ?

    The Trump administration said Thursday it would allow new offshore oil and gas drilling in nearly all United States coastal waters, giving energy companies access to leases off California for the first time in decades and opening more than a billion acres in the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard.
    Again, big business and corporate America get a raise, and we get the shaft, the drilling shaft.
