A stunning new survey by industry insiders revealed Wednesday that over 95% of American-based manufacturers have a “positive outlook” about the US economy and future growth potential.
The survey, released by the National Association of Manufacturers, shows a staggering 95.1% of those in the industry are optimistic about the US recovery heading into the third quarter of 2018; the highest level seen in the report’s twenty year history.
“Last year, manufacturers promised that we would deliver for our people and our communities if tax reform became law. Congress and the president delivered, and now manufacturers are keeping our promise: hiring new workers, raising wages, improving benefits, buying equipment and expanding right here in the United States. And the best part is, with manufacturers’ record-setting confidence and plans to keep hiring and growing, more good news is yet to come,” said a statement from NAM President Jay Timmons.
LIBERAL NIGHTMARE: Chrysler, Capital One RAISING WAGES after GOP Tax Cuts
The economic “nightmare” predicted by left-wing lawmakers such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer continued this week, with more and more major American corporations announcing increased wages and big bonuses following the GOP-led tax cuts.
Less than one day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blasted the tax legislation as “pathetic crumbs” to working-class families, Fiat Chrysler and Capital One pledged to raise wages and pay out big bonuses to American-based workers as a direct result of the Republican tax overhaul.

In addition, Chrysler officially announced its plan to relocate a major production plant from Mexico to Michigan “in response to the passage of U.S. tax reform late last year.”
“BREAKING: Fiat Chrysler to invest $1B+ to modernize a Michigan plant, in addition to previous $1B investment in the plant; will add 2500 new jobs, and will give $2,000 bonuses to 60,000 of its hourly and salaried employees in the US because of tax reform,” tweeted CNBC.
Chrysler and Capital One join a growing list of major American corporations –such as AT&T, Boeing, Southwest Airlines, Walmart, and others- raising wages and re-investing in the United States after the GOP and President Trump successfully passed the largest overhaul of the nation’s outdated tax code in generations.
MAGIC KINGDOM: Disney Announces BIG BONUSES After GOP Tax Cuts
Liberal predictions of “Armageddon” and “death and destruction” continued to crash and burn on Tuesday, with global giant Disney announcing its plans to pay out big bonuses to employees and invest $50 million in education programs for its workers following the GOP-led tax cuts.
According to CNBC, the ‘House of Mouse’ will pay out one-time bonuses of $1,000 to over 125,000 American-based workers and will invest millions into adult education for full-time employees.
“We are directing approximately $125 million to our cast members and employees across the country and making higher education more accessible with the launch of this new program,” CEO Bob Iger said in a statement.
“Participants can pursue qualifying higher education or vocational training, including courses unrelated to their current responsibilities at Disney,” added the statement.
The bonuses will be paid out to any full-time employee who has been employed by Disney since the beginning of the year, and will be doled out in two-parts.
The Disney Corporation joins a growing list of American-based companies, such as Boeing, Visa, Walmart, American Airlines, AT&T, and others, paying out increased wages and big bonuses following the GOP-led tax cuts.
Leading Democrats -particularly House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi- have been highly critical of the tax overhaul, claiming large corporations were simply dishing out “pathetic crumbs” to their employees.
