Do you think we will get a very nice raise after the new tax plan is enacted?

    They will be saving a ton of cash, I sure hope we see some of it. That is what its supposed to do... I think the new plan is going to rock- the- economy!!!

    Better yet let’s ask the Magic 8-ball ....

    Magic 8- ball will we see a raise from the company’s tax savings from the Trump Tax Plan ?

    If you believe "trickle down" economics works, you haven't been paying attention.

    The savings will go to stock buy backs and dividend payments, if they go anywhere.

    As a little activity, see if you can find anyone who wasn't a very high level executive and actually got a 'tax cut' raise.

    I do have some investments you can buy into on Mars if your interested. If everything goes as planned I’m going to be the largest real estate owner there.

    For people like us that are upper middle class, household incomes around $100K or better. It should translate to a modest tax cut. We still need to see the final product from Washington. But as originally written, the more you earn the more you save. We ain't millionaires. So we don't have the option to save millions. But you should still see a better return or a lowered tax burden. However you choose to see it.

    I believe the op’s question was do you think we will see a rise in income from Xpo due to their tax savings.

    I think we should get at least $1.25-$2.00 raise. Anything less is unreasonable.

    Other companies will be getting that. And we are already losing ground. They can't let wages sag to far without significantly more losses. Which may actually be what they want. They keep getting rid of everything. Why not get rid of drivers too ?

    That doesn't make any sense. No, I think not. We may get a raise because of industry standards. But not because of some tax thing.

    I don’t expect a raise because of standards. Let’s face it, we work for cheap bastards interested only in their bottom line. We are bidding for next year and I had to consider if I wanted to work here one more year. I am, for reasons to long to go into.

    Wrong Sir!
    My Wife and myself will pay substantialy more in tax’s due to the fact they have now eliminated the local and state tax deduction in are Federal tax return which will cost us personally $6,000 in 2018 . Freinds of ours in New Jersey will pay $16,000 more. Now maybe if you live somewhere where you state and local taxes are very low you might break even.
    You have to look at the fine points and not the talking points the Republicans want you to believe by watching Fox News.:1904:

    The Republicans are not out to help the middle class.

    Maybe you should elect people in your state that won't tax you to death and then you wouldn't have to worry about trying to write it off on your federal

    Very few from either political party are out to help the "working middle class".

    Nice to see an amount in that range.....keep hoping and wishing. We'll be lucky to get just enough to cover the difference of the higher insurance premiums we're paying in 2018.

    . I really wonder if we will get that much. For a while I thought we might get something, now, I don’t see any hope of it.
