Re: List of Job Cuts/Closings Since Obama's Reelection
I work at ING, and that number is skewed one way or another I do not know...


Basically, they sold their jobs to a company called Cognizant. Cognizant is an outsourcing place, that is replacing the jobs with call center jobs.

Anything non-customer contact is going to India.

So, regardless of the numbers, its either not as bad, or worse, depending on your outlook.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6235765


Worse. I'm very familiar with Cognizant. We lost a lot of jobs to India because of them.
 Quoting: Notsure


Yes, we are too. But nobody cares right now because there are still "jobs" being brought here... which are shitty call center jobs.

Yes, my observation also. Why didn't companies speak up that they would close shop or cut the work force before the election as a consequence? Probably, because they would have done it no matter who won.

American company executives hate America, the American workers, what little remains of American values. They American corporations want the same thing the American Federal gov't wants - as well as the rest of the world -- they want to destroy the U.S. and bring it down to a third-world country level.

Sadly, the ignorant and/or greedy and/or stupid Americans don't care much either - they don't buy American, they don't demand to speak to an American when they call into a customer support center, they don't demand the workers who do lawnwork, daycare, construction -- andy service be an American.

Malkin: Obama's layoff bomb

By Michele Malkin
Updated: 11/02/2012 02:23:55 PM EDT

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last Tuesday that employers issued 1,316 "mass layoff actions" (affecting 50 workers or more) in September; more than 122,000 workers were affected overall. USA Today financial reporter Matt Krantz wrote that "(m)uch of the recent layoff activity is connected to what's been the slowest period of earnings growth since the third quarter of 2009." Some necessary restructuring is underway in response to the stagnant European economy. But more and more U.S. businesses are putting the blame -- bravely and squarely -- right where it belongs: on the obstructionist policies and regulatory schemes of the blame-shifter-in-chief.

UPDATE: Volvo Trucks Pulaski County plant to lay off 300 in January
November 02, 2012 - 6:09 PM
» 0 Comments | Post a Comment
PULASKI COUNTY, VA --
It is business as usual at the Volvo Trucks plant in Dublin, but come January that
won't be the case for 300 workers losing their jobs

"With the layoffs it's hurting a lot of people. They're getting called back for three or four months and then Volvo lay them back off. That hurts them and their families. I think they ought to come up with a different solution to it because I believe it's hurting everyone in Dublin,” said Roy Bowden.

Company leaders blame the decline in industry orders on sluggish job growth, federal budget discussions, and yes, the upcoming presidential election. This is the second major layoff since 2009 when 650 people lost their jobs, but the company brought back more than 700 workers in 2011. Currently, 2,400 people work at the Dublin plant.

"It's normal for Volvo, you know they always do this, so it's negative, but they'll always bounce back,” said Loetha Orren.

Mourning in America - Here's Those Layoffs We Voted For Last Night

By Rusty Weiss on November 07, 2012

Last night's victory for the President marks the first time since its inception that Obamacare is no longer a what-if; it is the future of health care in America.

It also means a near immediate impact on the economy. With 20 or so new or higher taxes set to be implemented, ranging from a $123 billion surtax on investment income, through the $20 billion medical device tax, all the way down to the $600 million executive compensation limit, Obamacare will be a nearly unbearable tax burden on the economy.

Who will pay? The middle-class workforce, of course.

So with another four years for President Obama to look forward to, and the obvious inevitability of Obamacare that this entails, let's examine the very real jobs that will be lost, and the very real lives that will be affected.

Welch Allyn

Welch Allyn, a company that manufactures medical diagnostic equipment in central New York, announced in September that they would be laying off 275 employees, or roughly 10% of their workforce over the next three years. One of the major reasons discussed for the layoffs was a proactive response to the Medical Device Tax mandated by the new healthcare law.

Dana Holding Corp.

As recently as a week ago, a global auto parts manufacturing company in Ohio known as Dana Holding Corp., warned their employees of potential layoffs, citing "$24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses". After laying off several white collar staffers, company insiders have hinted at more to come. The company will have to cover the additional $24 million cost somehow, which will likely equate to numerous cuts in their current workforce of 25,500 worldwide.

Stryker

One of the biggest medical device manufacturers in the world, Stryker will close their facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs in December. Worse, they plan on countering the medical device tax in Obamacare by slashing 5% of their global workforce - an estimated 1,170 positions.

Boston Scientific

In October of 2009, Boston Scientific CEO Ray Elliott, warned that proposed taxes in the health care reform bill could "lead to significant job losses" for his company. Nearly two years later, Elliott announced that the company would be cutting anywhere between 1,200 and 1,400 jobs, while simultaneously shifting investments and workers overseas - to China.

Medtronic

In March of 2010, medical device maker Medtronic warned that Obamacare taxes could result in a reduction of precisely 1,000 jobs. That plan became reality when the company cut 500 positions over the summer, with another 500 set for the end of 2013.

Others

A short list of other companies facing future layoffs at the hands of Obamacare:

Smith & Nephew - 770 layoffs
Abbott Labs - 700 layoffs
Covidien - 595 layoffs
Kinetic Concepts - 427 layoffs
St. Jude Medical - 300 layoffs
Hill Rom - 200 layoffs

Beyond the complete elimination of a significant number of American jobs is another looming problem created by the health care law - a shift from full-time to part-time workers.

45 companies announce layoff's in the past 48 hours! This is what the people wanted! The people have spoken!

Earlier today, Twitchy related some heartbreaking stories of small business owners laying off workers to avoid the economic impact of the Obamacare tax that isn’t a tax. Comedian Jon Lovitz, a small business owner himself, was no barrel of laughs either as his timeline filled with stories of impending downsizing. So, what about those big corporations? Boeing’s defense division announced yesterday it would cut 30 percent of management staff, and the company was not alone, we’re learning.

Just last week, Michelle Malkin warned in her column of “Obama’s Layoff Bomb,” and the headlines over the last two days seem to prove that this ticking time bomb was no dud.

Re: List of Job Cuts/Closings Since Obama's Reelection
Sleeping Giant - I guess it's probably not obamacare related, but did you see yesterday that Wright-Patt is shutting down some big program that was supposed to create like 500 jobs? A couple hundred people have been layed off.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19011623


Here it is:


The cancellation of a billion dollar computer modernization program will cost 115 people their jobs at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, the Air Force said Thursday.

An additional 55 civilian and military base employees will be reassigned from the failed Expeditionary Combat Support System project. Those losing their jobs are advisory and assistance services contract employees, the Air Force said.

The Air Force concluded the program is no longer viable, a statement said. “Therefore, we are cancelling the program and moving forward with other options in order to meet requirements,” it said, adding that the Air Force “will be better served by developing an entirely new strategy.”

Earlier this year, the Dayton Daily News reported that problems with the computer modernization project put it at risk, although the government had already spent nearly $1 billion on it.

Thanks for posting this Sleeping Giant. I was wondering about this subject.
 Quoting: calin


No problem. Scary, isn't it?
 Quoting: Sleeping Giant


yes.

I wonder if these companies just waited until after the election to announce this stuff. That they were going to close or layoff anyway.
 Quoting: calin


Yes, my observation also. Why didn't companies speak up that they would close shop or cut the work force before the election as a consequence? Probably, because they would have done it no matter who won.

American company executives hate America, the American workers, what little remains of American values. They American corporations want the same thing the American Federal gov't wants - as well as the rest of the world -- they want to destroy the U.S. and bring it down to a third-world country level.

Sadly, the ignorant and/or greedy and/or stupid Americans don't care much either - they don't buy American, they don't demand to speak to an American when they call into a customer support center, they don't demand the workers who do lawnwork, daycare, construction -- andy service be an American.

Everyone needs to keep in mind, it doesn't really matter WHY businesses are cut. Who care if they hate Obama?

The fact is...they are doing it.
