Collins praises Gainesville company's worker bonus plan

By AccessWDUN Staff

At least one Gainesville company is planning to deliver bonuses to its employees as a direct result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, according to 9th District Congressman Doug Collins

In a news release distributed by Collins' office, Donna Mincey, President and CEO of Mincey Marble, says that the tax reform package signed into law last December will directly benefit her company’s bottom line, which allows her to further invest in Mincey’s more than 300 employees, many of whom are hourly workers.

“As the owner of a family business, I want to share how tax reform is benefitting Americans at every level," Mincey is quoted as saying.  "Companies big and small are passing along tax savings to the workers who help build our economy. I hope that the bonuses Mincey Marble is providing encourage other businesses in our great state to pay it forward, because the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the kind of meaningful change that can help transform communities by bringing relief to American workers and families.” 

“Mincey Marble has been part of our community for decades, and their decision to pass along the company’s tax benefits to our hardworking neighbors is outstanding," said Collins, a Gainesville Republican.  "I supported the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act with President Trump knowing it would lead to lower taxes and higher paychecks for northeast Georgians. We’re already seeing the economic benefits of tax reform happening at corporate and grass-roots levels, and I’m always thrilled to hear individual stories of how smaller government helps people, like the team members at Mincey Marble, invest in bigger dreams.” 

Employees at Mincey Marble will receive bonuses of up to $1,000 depending on their length of service with the company. Even employees hired this year will see a bonus, and the checks are scheduled to arrive the middle of this month.

A year ago, the company announced plans to move from its Browns Bridge Road location and expand the size and operation at the new facility, which is still under construction.
