SHEBOYGAN — Blue Harbor Resort announced Thursday their response to the signing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and their commitment to employee’s financial well-being.
In 2011, Chicago-based entrepreneur, Gerald Forsythe, and the Forsythe Family with a partner, purchased Blue Harbor Resort & Conference Center. In 2014, the Forsythe Family increased their commitment and fully acquired Blue Harbor Resort.
On December 22, 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the Tax Cuts and Job Act of 2017. The reform reduced the taxes for most people, individual business owners, S Corporations and sole proprietors starting in 2018.
Walmart, AT&T, Bank of America, Comcast and Southwest Airlines are among major corporations that awarded employees with wage increases and one-time cash bonuses following the tax reform.
Blue Harbor’s ownership joins the vast list of companies who have announced financial support of their employees. The Forsythe Family today dedicated a one-time cash bonus of $1,000 to each eligible Blue Harbor employee.
The Forsythe Family’s financial dedication to Blue Harbor employees is in direct response to President Trump’s Tax Cuts and Job Act of 2017.
