Among the many promises Republicans are making when it comes to their massive tax bill hurtling through Congress, job creation is probably the biggest. Steep cuts to the corporate tax rate, they say, will translate not only to more more jobs, but better wages too.
But some of bill’s proponents are building off those bold predictions, and offering additions. Andrew Puzder, President Trump’s original pick for Labor Secretary before withdrawing in controversy and of one of the tax bill’s biggest cheerleaders, told Vice News he believes wage increases will come fast — as in April of 2018 fast.
The secret, according to Puzder, a former CEO of the company that owns Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., lies in the bill’s trickle down philosophy.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, has a decidedly less optimistic view of the bill’s promise for working class Americans, however.
“This is the same answer Republicans have given for 40 years and they’ve said, let’s cut taxes for richest and most powerful,” she said. “It’s just delivering one gut punch to another for hard working people.”
