Funny, the money goes to stock buy back. Not capital equipment.

Only recently, after trump's tax reforms, did companies increase investement in capital expenditure. Corporate usa is great, but it seems like it always needs a fucking blade to its neck else it morphs to cancer

The wealth will only be disbursed in the case of an actual labor shortage like what occurred during the world wars. Of course during the Second World War wages were set by the government and so companies had to increase benefits to compete for labor instead which is what has fed this healthcare "crisis".
