DEVASTATING! Obamacare Forcing Immediate Layoffs Of THOUSANDS Of Workers
Employees signed their own Pinkslips..goawayverysad


• Energizer -

The St. Louis-based company said Thursday that it expects to shed about 1,500 employees. When finished, the restructuring should lead to $200 million in pretax yearly savings, Energizer said. It aims to have most of its restructuring steps finished by the end of September 2014.



• Westinghouse -

Westinghouse Anniston, the contractor responsible for shutting down Anniston’s chemical weapons incinerator, has reduced its workforce by another 50 employees.



• Research in Motion Limited -

Research in Motion Ltd., the maker of BlackBerry smartphones, laid off about 200 people at its U.S. headquarters in Irving on Wednesday, according to a source close to the company who did not want to be named.



• Lightyear Network Solutions -

More than one dozen employees at a Pikeville company lost their jobs this week. Officials with Lightyear Network Solutions said they are consolidating offices in Louisville and Pikeville to save money.



• Hawker Beechcraft -

The company says 240 employees will lose their jobs with the closing of Hawker Beechcraft Services facilities in Little Rock, Ark.; Mesa, Ariz.; and San Antonio, Texas.



• Boeing (30% of their management staff) -

Boeing Co. said Wednesday it plans to employ 30% fewer executives at its Boeing Defense, Space & Security unit by the end of 2012 compared to 2010 levels.



• CVPH Medical Center -

CVPH Medical Center has handed pink slips to 17 employees. The layoffs — nine in management and eight hourly staffers — are part of an effort to “help bolster the hospital’s financial position in 2013 and beyond,” a press release said.



• US Cellular -

The move will result in 980 job cuts at U.S. Cellular, with 640 in the Chicago area, according to a spokeswoman. The cuts are slightly under 12 percent of the approximately 8,400 total employees U.S. Cellular had at the end of the third quarter.



• Momentive Performance Materials -

About 150 workers at Sistersville’s Momentive Performance Materials plant will be temporarily laid off later this month, officials said this week.



• Rocketdyne -

About 100 employees at Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, most of whom work in the San Fernando Valley, were laid off Wednesday in response to dwindling government spending on space exploration, the company said. The layoffs were effective immediately, and 75 percent of them came at the facilities on Canoga and De Soto avenues, which employ about 1,100 people. The company has six sites across the Valley.

Just the beginning and the tip of the iceberg.

There is no way most companies can afford this.

Obama knows that. He's punishing businesses and getting "revenge"!
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Well, I only see a couple of companies on the list that actually stated Obamacare as a reason. But sure, blame Obamacare. Don't blame the company execs that would rather ruin someone's financial situation just to make sure they keep their own ridiculously large salaries. The CEOs are greedy bastards. It's because of Obamacare. Yeah. Sure. Whatever.

Re: DEVASTATING! Obamacare Forcing Immediate Layoffs Of THOUSANDS Of Workers
Christian, did you actually look up anybody on this list and see what they really do(or not do)...Like

"Vestas Wind Systems - said it’s reducing headcount by 3,000"...Green energy you repubs hate and refuse to buy, no wonder they are going down.


or how about the US Cellular announcement:
"U.S. Cellular will sell markets including Chicago to units of Sprint Nextel Corp. for $480 million.
The move will result in 980 job cuts at U.S. Cellular, with 640 in the Chicago area, according to a spokeswoman. The cuts are slightly under 12 percent of the approximately 8,400 total employees U.S. Cellular had at the end of the third quarter.
The company plans to keep its headquarters in Chicago"

This has nothing to do with the elections...was in place well before

Go ahead and thread ban me, if you can't handle the truth.


and here is the Hawker Beech announcement:
"Hawker Beechcraft says the moves are in line with plans to emerge from bankruptcy as a standalone company. It says the closures and layoffs will help with its plan to focus on turboprop, piston and military aircraft and on its parts and maintenance business."


and let's look at Energizer:

Energizer Holdings Inc said on Thursday that it would cut more than 10 percent of its workforce, or about 1,500 people, as it tries to rev up results in its battery business.

A restructuring at the company, which also makes Schick razors, was in the works for months. In September, Energizer said it planned to cut jobs and expenses but until Thursday it had not disclosed details of the plan.

This year, the company faced pressures including losing shelf space for batteries at Walmart and stepped up competition from larger rival Procter & Gamble Co's Gillette razors. At the same time, it has been under constant pressure as popular iPads, mobile phones and other electronic gadgets do not require its kind of batteries.

"It is absolutely what the company has to do in the context of declining market share, declining category growth in batteries and much tougher competition," Sanford C. Bernstein analyst Ali Dibadj said of the restructuring. "This is a short-term Band-Aid, but going forward they're still stuck in very difficult categories and positions in those categories."


Downsizing / Streamlining due to Market Competition NOT the election or Obamacare

Actually, I have couple biz owner friends cutting hours and downsizing because of the obamacare tax increases, expenses, and increased regulations. The gloomy business forecast and national debt explosion under obama cements their resolve to retrench.

And the sheep thought they were bluffing, this is just the opening act just wait , then the stock market collapse before the end of the year because of the increase in capital gains tax from 15 to 25% starting Jan 1, coupled with this huge contraction in unemployment. Nicely planned destruction for Soros and the Rockiefellers to go shopping on assets for pennies on the worthless dollar next year.rant
