— More than 30 companies with employees in eastern Idaho have confirmed they are giving employee bonuses or pay raises due to the passage of the national tax reform bill.

Many CEOs and managers say they are offering the extra cash after Melaleuca CEO Frank VanderSloot challenged all Idaho employers to "spread the wealth" by giving bonuses to their employees.

"We're going to have more money in our pocket and that means we can afford to give our employees more," VanderSloot said. "I'm challenging all other companies in Idaho to do the same. We're asking other businesses to step up because everyone is going to see more money in their paycheck."

Melaleuca employees over 2,000 people and each worker received $100 for every year they have worked with the company.
