Thank you, President Trump!

Posted by Dave on Wed Jan 3 07:19:07 2018

American Airlines and SW Airlines announced they will give employees a $1,000 bonus within the next few months, thanks to changes in the tax law.

Sure they will. Prove they won't. All you need do is provide the intercorporate memo with the fine print surrounding accepting the money.

Lulz. You can't prove a negative. It just kills you seeing employees get a bonus thanks to the new tax law.

I forgot which airline but one is giving the bonus this month and the other sometime during the 1st quarter.

Wage concessions during periods of high oil prices are an integral part of the business model of a deregulated airline.

Absolutely! If not that, the new fees that airlines are so good at inventing.

Here's my thing... I certainly can appreciate a bonus, but... If my employer is having a windfall and (truly) wants to share it with the employees... personally, I'd prefer something along the lines of a salary increase, added benefits such a larger contribution/match toward my 401k, and maybe lower the cost of other benefits etc.

No, it doesn't. It does raise interest on why suddenly now. Fact is, trump has done nothing about transportation (thankfully and equally curiously, everything he hasn't touched is thriving). Any bonuses that occur in that business, therefore, are benefits from President Obama's policies.

He's not supposed to. And based on that, Obama has done less than nothing.

You are the one who first asserted that it will be taken back as soon as oil goes up. Show me the small print surrounding acceptance of this money that states what you said.

Wasn't me. I just asked to see the memo that goes with the check, to read ts small print. THAT document tells us whether or not this can be given back.

Simple...just spend it or lock it up in a 5 yr CD & get a hefty 1.5% (if you're lucky) return.
The thought of it be taken back at a later date is nonsense.

Heh. The incompetent Republicans have managed to leave open some loopholes that even lowly people like me can take advantage of. I may spend a fair amount of that loophole money on people less fortunate than me, but I certainly won't give it to the federal government to decide. They would just use it to cut Medicare funding.

"...but I certainly won't give it to the federal government to decide."

That bonus is taxable income, so it must be reported on 2018s return (assuming the bonuses were given after Jan 1).
So Uncle Sam might still get a little slice back thru the IRS.

Lol! Most of the good economic stuff is traceable to President Obama's policies, and the manufacturing is getting a boost from depleted inventories, it's been a good while. Once we ht the next budget cycle and Janet Yellen's out of office, all bets are off.

But a $1,000 bonus is better than nothing at all. The usual nattering nabobs of negativism here seem to forget that little fact.
