Hy-Vee Tells Employees Good Things Come From Corporate Tax Breaks

Hy-Vee CEO Randy Edeker: “…the [Trump] changes in taxes were part of the way we were able to bring a lot of  good things to the employees this past year.”  

One has to wonder what are the “good things” Hy-Vee has done for employees this past year because of Trump.  Surely forcing them to come to work during a pandemic while the public wanders through the stores without masks couldn’t be considered a “good thing.”  I’ve been in Hy-Vee.  Customers are not required to wear masks. Real caring for the employees there!  So, can anyone answer the question what did Hy-Vee do this year for employees due to Trump’s tax policy?  Anyone?

According to Iowa Capital Dispatch

Randy Edeker, CEO of Hy-Vee, is concerned about the election, specifically how it will affect taxes.

In a video to employees, which aired in employee break rooms across the grocery-store giant’s eight-state region, Edeker stated:

“I never endorse and I try not to ever push a certain candidate or a direction. I always try to speak about Hy-Vee. I have some of the concerns about some of the policies that are being discussed by some of the candidates. Some of the tax policies would be very impactful to Hy-Vee. And the changes in taxes were part of the way we were able to bring a lot of  good things to the employees this past year. Social unrest unfortunately continues to be a problem around the community and we continue to invest in our local groups who we really think can bring unity to our towns.”

Edeker’s message is clear: Donald Trump and the chaos of his presidency have been good for business.
