    Following the passage of the GOP tax reform bill, a number of corporations have announced bonuses and wage increases for its employees, citing the tax cuts as the main reason. One company that handed out one-time bonuses was Home Depot. And the co-founder had some strong words for Democrats who have criticized these bonuses as ďcrumbsĒ and dismissed them as PR moves. Appearing on Fox News Saturday, Bernie Marcus took aim at Democratic leaders, telling host Neil Cavuto that derisive comments about the bonuses will come back to haunt Democrats as it paints them as elitist. ďThese are things that...

    With unemployment low and demand for new homes high, a company like Home Depot could be spending most of its surplus billions on raises for workers or the rollout of new stores. Instead, it is using $15 billion to buy back shares of its own stock, a move that will reward shareholders including chief executive Craig Menear. Home Depotís statement was a reminder that corporate America may have other plans for that cash. Several companies already have indicated that they will use excess funds to pay off debt, increase dividend payments or repurchase their own shares rather than create new...

    A 70-year-old Army veteran has been fired from a Houston-area Home Depot after trying to stop suspected shoplifters from taking thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise. KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Jim Tinney says he was fired last month from the store in Pearland. Tinney says he was trained to not confront shoplifters and knows he violated company policy, but that his military training just kicked in when he noticed three men attempting to steal tools. He threw a paint roller extension pole toward the suspects' feet. The men escaped. The Home Depot said in a statement that only trained...

Recently, Tinney said he saw three men carrying tool sets worth thousands of dollars to the checkout area at Home Depot. He said they seemed nervous. ďOne of them hollered Ďletís go,í...

    In September, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will begin construction on President Trumpís infamous 130-mile wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. At times like these, the symbolism of barriers hits hard. Itís no surprise that on Saturday, attendees at Chicagoís Ruido Fest Ė a rock en espaŮol festival in the cityís Pilsen neighborhood Ė decided to stage a protest against a Home Depot branded booth that featured a mock wall installation. The activity invited festivalgoers to decorate tiles and glue them onto the wall as artists played sets across the grounds. In addition to the symbolism of the installation, protesters expressed...

    Last Sunday, Krystal Lake, a 22-year-old Home Depot employee on Staten Island, was photographed wearing a hat that says, ďAmerica Was Never Great.Ē It's in the same font and style of Trump's campaign slogan of "Make America Great Again." Of course, death threats and hate mail targeting her have come pouring in ó which, if you think about it, lends itself to her feeling like she was right to wear the hat in the first place. About two months ago, I wrote a column about the word "again" in Trump's slogan. I think it's a racist dog whistle and it...

    Customers at a Staten Island Home Depot were shocked to see one of the companyís employees wearing an ďAmerica Was Never GreatĒ hat earlier this week. Krystal Lake, 22, of St. George got political during a shift on Tuesday. Her twist on Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trumpís slogan was immediately shared online. Ms. Lake said the social media furor between those who said she correct, and those who thought she was both unprofessional and wrong, was unexpected.

    So we bought a shed from Home Depot. I really despise Home Depot, but the price was right (next shed size up with a door wide enough to meet our needs is 30% more expensive at any shed supply store we looked at) and it was locally available and had a 10 year warranty. The shed we bought was advertised on the HD website as having a 64" wide door opening, which we knew would be tight, but would work for our mower. We bought the shed and material for the foundation with cash. My husband worked for 2 days...
