Obama does not want legal layoff notices out before elections
You may have heard of the sequester bill set to take effect January 2013.

The bill says that 1+ Trillion dollars have to be cut from the budget. Half from defense and the other half from everything else. Now whether you think that's good or bad is up to you. But here's the thing. If a company believes that is going to have a massive layoff they are required BY LAW to notify their employees of that possibility at least 60 (New York may be 90) days in advance. They aren't handing pink slips, just giving the employees fair warning so they can be prepared.

Now if the government doesn't do anything about this between now and December there will be massive layoffs in the defense industry. Especially from companies like Lockheed Martin. Lockheed may even completely shut down the F35 project.

Now again, you may or may not agree with the cuts and that's fine.

But here is the important part. The administration is telling these companies NOT to send out these notices. Notices that would go out only a week or so before elections. Instead the administration is saying that it will COVER ALL COSTS from litigation of employees suing the companies for not properly following federal laws about layoff warnings.

So the government is trying to bribe companies to break the very laws that the government created. And in return will use tax dollars to pay any legal costs.

The government says its justified because there is no guarantee that there will be a layoff. But Jesus isn't that true for every layoff? I mean there's always the potential things could pickup...but the law says if there is sufficient evidence you have to warn your people.
