    Waste Management CEO reacts to Nancy Pelosi 'crumbs' comments on bonuses


    Published January 12, 2018 Business Leaders FOXBusiness Opens a New Window.

    Waste Management CEO on Nancy Pelosi 'crumbs' comments
    Waste Management CEO James Fish outlined three things he would tell Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after the House minority leader called employee bonuses related to tax reform 'crumbs.'

    Waste Management CEO James Fish responded to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) criticism of bonuses given to employees following the passing of the Republican-backed tax reform bill.

    In an exclusive interview with FOX Business’ Liz Claman, Fish said the bonuses will be go to drivers, landfill workers and customer service agents.

    “We are giving it to those folks not just because not only are they hard working, but they don’t participate in our annual bonus which typically are for salary employees,” Fish said during an interview on “Countdown to the Closing Bell” Friday.

    The House Minority Leader on Thursday called the recent wave of corporate bonus given to workers as a result of the Republican tax bill as “crumbs.”

    "In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic," Pelosi told reporters. "It’s so pathetic."

    I guess to an elitist multi-millionaire like Pelosi, about $120M, $2000 is 'crumbs'. I would not be surprised if she pays restaurant bills larger than that......:shame:shame:shame:shame:shame

    When I was a kid I worked as a loader/driver for a refuse company that was a part of the Waste Management empire. Our typical work week was 48 hours which means you didn't get any overtime until you went over 48 hours. Which you did sometimes during the dead of summer when demand was high. OTOH during the winter when it was low you may have only worked 20-25 hors per week, but if you clocked in all 5 days you got paid for 48 if not you only got paid for what you worked. This was an incentive to get guys to show up to work everyday instead of getting wasted the night before and calling in sick...

    Working on the trucks wasn't glamorous and it can be dangerous but you got paid well if you did your job, can remember a couple of times having to kick my loading partner off into the ditch to keep him from being hit by idiot drivers...

    Nancy Pelosi's elitist Democrats -- America, this is the party of the rich, sneering at the poor

    Pelosi: Tax Cut Bonuses for Employees Amount to 'Crumbs'
    There was a time when the Democrats were the party of working Americans. They seemed to understand and fight for the interests of the working class and people living in poverty. Republicans, by contrast, struggled for decades with the perception that they were “for the rich.”

    Well, how things have turned around. Just look at the latest economic pronouncements of leading establishment Democrats.

    Here in my home state of California, in response to President Trump signing the GOP tax reform bill into law, state Senate Democratic leader Kevin de Leon has taken up a new cause: fighting for the right of the richest Californians to evade their taxes.

    It’s almost unbelievable – but true. De Leon (who is also the leading challenger to Sen. Dianne Feinstein in her primary battle as she seeks re-election this year) has proposed setting up a new so-called charity that would enable the Silicon Valley and Hollywood elite to claw back their losses from the Trump administration’s new tax reform law.

    If you’re a member of a working family struggling to make ends meet (as pretty much half of American families are after the economic disaster of the Bush and Obama years), then $1,000 makes a real difference.

    That tax reform law, let’s remind ourselves, actually means that some of the richest people in the richest parts of America will pay more in taxes, thanks to drastic cuts in deductions for state and local taxes they pay.

    To fight off President Trump’s vicious attack on their rich friends (read: donors), California Democrats want to set up a “California Excellence Fund.” Donations to the fund would be matched dollar-for-dollar by tax credits, which can then be subtracted from tax bills as “charity.” It’s a classic liberal version of charity, mind you: all the money would go straight into the coffers of the state government’s general fund.

    Who would benefit from this bit of creative accounting? Californians earning over $1 million a year, mainly.

    The only rear loaders I still see around here are in the cities with county/city employees. Out in the burbs/country side/front loaders seem to be the vehicle of choice, with only one person running it instead of a crew of 3. There is also a restriction in he size of containers allowed (no more steel GI cans) to minimize wear and tear on the driver/loader. They also don't allow grass clippings either which back when I worked was most of our weight during the summer. A full load in summer may be close to 80K pounds and the winter was only 60K or so...
