Effingham owner shares tax-cut savings: credits new tax law for $1,000 bonuses

Tony Griffith (left), owner of Griffith Trucking, Heartland Peterbilt and Heartland Classics in Effingham and Newton, will be giving out bonuses to his 65 full-time employees as a result of the recent tax law changes.

In President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, he made the case that his recent tax law is the reason why companies across the country have announced bonuses, wage increases and other benefits for their employees.

Tony Griffith, who owns three companies in Effingham, agrees wholeheartedly. So much so that this week he announced to his 65 full-time employees that he will be giving each of them a $1,000 bonus.

“I'm excited for my employees," said Griffith, who anticipates he'll save about $100,000 under the new tax law. "This gives them hope that they are not just working at some humdrum job paying them the same until they die."

Griffith owns Griffith Trucking, inside of which is the moving company, Broadway Express. He also owns Heartland Peterbilt and Heartland Classics in Effingham and Newton.
