2. There's no reason at all a company would use their new pile of cash to hire American workers.

They might bring their corporate offices back to the U.S. to take advantage of the new tax policies, but they are unlikely to pay an American worker $15 an hour if they can hire a worker somewhere in the world for $15 a week. There's no penalty for outsourcing - companies can still deduct the cost of closing a plant to move production overseas.
