    Memphis-based FedEx Corp. announced Friday, Jan. 26, three “major programs” that would total more than $3.2 billion in investments as a result of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

    FedEx programs:

    • $200 million in increased compensation: Two-thirds will be allocated to hourly employees by advancing the 2018 annual pay increase to April 1 rather than the normal October increase date. The remaining funds will go toward increases in performance-based incentive plans for salaried employees
    • $1.5 billion voluntary contribution to the FedEx pension plan
    • $1.5 billion investment to expand the FedEx Express Indianapolis hub over the course of the next seven years. Plans also call for the modernization and enlargement of the Memphis SuperHub. FedEx plans to announce those details in spring 2018.

    True that...but at least the pension and 401k funds are safe from judgements if one ever files for ch. 7 BK due to medical bills. :)

    I woulda preferred the extra week vacation. Money is nice but time off is better since I prefer to work to live as opposed to live to work. Disappointed

    It's $2.20. ST, I've rebuilt dozens of bridge overpasses and half of the boardwalks on the east coast. There will never be a financial "windfall" for the Coop....
