ICYMI: CONGRESSMAN BRIAN MAST IS OK WITH WALMART MAKING BILLIONS FROM TAX BREAKS WHILE YOU GET…NOTHING
Walmart’s annual meeting today is an opportunity to remind Congressman Brian Mast that the company — the largest employer in Florida — is a major benefactor of the tax breaks and giveaways he provided them in the #TrumpTax bill. Here’s what Walmart is getting:
- Walmart pockets nearly $2 billion from the tax bill. Walmart grabbed over $400 million in savings in the first quarter of 2018 alone over what it would have paid.
- Walmart’s CEO Doug McMilion’s pay package increases nearly half a million to $22.8 million — 1,118 times the median salary of a Walmart worker.
- Walmart laid off nearly 10,000 workers since the #TrumpTax bill was signed.
Here’s what Floridians are getting:
- — 0 — Zero, zilch, nada. The bottom 60% of Floridians receive $360 in 2019, but if Congress extends the #TrumpTax that number drops to zero.
Thanks, Congressman Mast! “Save money, live better?” Maybe if you’re already a millionaire, billionaire, or rich corporation. If you’re the average Floridian, you get…nothing.
