UPDATE: COMCAST SAYS MAKE THAT FOUR – more companies announce they are investing in employees because of GOP tax cut!

Earlier we told you that AT&T was giving big bonuses to their employees and making big investments in the US because of the GOP tax reform bill.

Well they are not the only ones. Three more companies have made announcements today because of the tax cut, two of which are raising their own minimum wage to $15/hour.

Fifth Third Bancorp:

Wells Fargo:

As an aside on Wells Fargo, this is the opposite of what Think Progress said would happen:

And now Boeing has come out and said it is not only investing in its employees, but also in charities:

Wow! Great news for their employees and subsequently for the economy. Also, what a great way to prove the point of Republicans that tax reform works.

As another aside, isn’t it ironic that companies choose to raise their minimum wage to $15 when good tax reform is passed, as opposed to Democrats trying to force them to do it while paying higher taxes? It’s not ironic at all. It’s common sense!

UPDATE: Comcast too!
