Obama tries to get Defene Contractors to break the law and not tell emoloyees of pending layoffs before election!
Obama Administration 'Doesn't Want All These Pink Slips Going Out 5 Days Before Election'


[link to cnsnews.com]

Obama's Labor Department on Monday issued "guidance" to the states, telling them that a federal law requiring advance notice of mass layoffs does not apply to the layoffs that may occur in January as a result of automatic budget cuts known as "sequestration."

Inhofe, appearing on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning, said President Obama, through his Labor Department, "is trying to intimidate businesses, companies, corporations -- not just defense contractors -- into not issuing the pink slips," which are required by federal law 60 days before mass layoffs or plant closings.
. . .

At a time when our economy continues to suffer from staggeringly high unemployment, the Obama Administration today took away an important planning tool for Americans who may lose their jobs as a result of the failure of Congress and the White House to address the looming and entirely predictable threat of budget sequestration. Sequestration is currently the law of the land, and our nation's workers have a right to know how these sequestration cuts which begin in January may impact them," the senators said in a news release.

There is a reason for the 60 day notice being given to these workers and it is so that they can try to make alternative plans for their livlihood.

I'm sure there would be massive lawsuits if this was not done according to the existing rules and regulations.

Does Obama really expect defense contractors to allow themelves to be exposed to these potential lawsuits in order to conceal the real effects of Obamanomics?

Yep, that's nerve and arrogance all right!

Those who cannot make it in the real world, hide in the bowel of government resentful of the fortunes of others regardless of merit. In this case, those who lack the wisdom and skill set to be successful in the private sector are drawn to the public sector by its corruption, power, and the ability to strike deep and fatal wounds at those in the private sector whose success they truly despise.

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Re: Obama tries to get Defene Contractors to break the law and not tell emoloyees of pending layoffs before election!
Our governments today have trampled on every principle of law and justice. The bureaucrats have basked in the hatred and jealousy of Karl Marx targeted and justified in their own minds against those in the private sector who have more than them under the pretense that this is not “fair”. They are supported by the avowed power of the sword in the form of legal persecutions and intimidation. No man of distinguished skill, elegant accomplishments, or knowledge of civil business, will ever be suffered near heart of government power; and the court of these political entities has revived the idea of coveting thy neighbor’s goods – one of the very 10 Commandments that it is widely believed God himself forbid for obvious reasons.

Of course with government defense contractors, there is always that implied threat and intimidation that if you don't do thus and so, you mysteriously won't get any contracts.

I also know the federal government is allowed to break it's own labor laws for "federal employees" (not contractors).

For instance if you work overtime as a federal employee there is an actual salary cap (I think a GS10 hits it) so maybe you only make $.02 hr extra for overtime and it's better for you to take comp time instead of being paid overtime.
