Today Ohio-based grocery giant Kroger announced it is expanding its tuition reimbursement program by five times their original investment, spending as much as $21,000 on an employee’s education, citing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as the reason why.
Kroger also announced an increase in their dollar-for-dollar 401K reimbursement match, an additional $5 million annually to fund the Kroger’s Helping Hands program for employees facing hardships, and an expanded employee discount on house-brand goods.
It’s too bad Ohio’s own Senator Sherrod Brown voted against these educational opportunities and benefits for Ohioans.
“Another day, another example of Ohioans benefitting from the GOP’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Unfortunately for Sherrod Brown, he chose to play partisan games with Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren over providing educational benefits and increased 401K matches for hard-working Ohioans. Brown will regret his vote against Ohioans at the polls in November.” –RNC Spokesperson Ellie Hockenbury
