Kroger to Add 11,000 Supermarket Jobs Due to GOP Tax Reform

Post by 1989TransAm » Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:00 pm

GO TRUMP GO

"The Kroger supermarket chain announced Tuesday that it would hire 11,000 workers for its supermarkets, including nearly 2,000 managers.
The supermarket chain also said it would invest $500 million in increasing associate wages, training, and developing its employees over the next three years due to the money saved from the GOP’s tax reform plan, Fox Business reported.
Kroger added that it would release the details of the tax reform investment plan “this month.”
But the company’s hiring spree does not tell the full story. The 11,000 supermarket jobs do not include the temporary construction jobs created to build new facilities or any jobs created as a result of the company’s mergers.

Kroger has hired thousands of employees within the past three years alone—the company added 10,000 employees to its payroll in 2017 and 12,000 workers in 2016.
“Over the last decade, Kroger has added 100,000 new jobs in communities across America,” said Tim Massa, Kroger’s group vice president of human resources and labor relations.
The company’s growth comes at a time when many supermarket chains are struggling to compete with retailers such as Amazon, which acquired Whole Foods in 2017."

The Sun also came up this morning because of the divine tax cut of DT.

Not nearly enough to offset all of the layoffs store closings and bankruptcies.

They hired 12k in 2016. I wonder why that was.... :lol:

Exactly. No business hires people because they are unhappy about making a profit and want to burn it up with unneeded employees.

Its a bizarre article......

Interestingly enough, if Kroger had cut 11k jobs MaxineandSons would have posted the story in two seconds flat blaming Trump and loaded with all sorts of cute emojis.

Corker now says his yes vote on tax reform may be his worst vote ever. Its amazing how honest politicians suddenly become when they are not up for re election.

Corker is a f*cking idiot. He cannot get reelected in his home state and that is why he is quitting. If he was so worried about the deficit why did he vote for that huge porker of a budget? I say good riddance to people like Corker.

Honesty has nothing to do with it
he based his opinion on a CBO report and now he looks like an idiot because he obviously did not read the whole report or he wouldn't have changed his mind
But then the mainstream media won't report all the facts just what meets their agenda
