Re: Since Obama’s re-election: over 100,000 layoffs at more than 125 businesses (so far)
my employees were told over a month ago that if O was reelected, there would be a 20% layoff and a 20% reduction in the salaries of the remaining workers.

They were told in advance so they could find another job to support their family. Although they have been trying, not a single person has left the company - BECAUSE THEY CAN'T FIND A JOB.


A week from Monday, i will be laying off the 20% - it is actually going to be about 23%. No reason to wait until January - might as well get it done now.

Business owners will not feel the pain, they can adjust. Employees are the one's that Obama will hurt - they just don't know it yet.

Although I didn't go this route, many of my business owner friends are only laying off Democrats. They are not yet a protected class..


Too bad - I'm firing some really good people.

Sad day in America.

A nice handy list of companies to boycott I suppose. Those companies who refuse to pay their workers a livable wage and those who act out of spite are those who should not exist.

Nope. By my estimation 99% of GLP posters are 'business owners'. It needs to get called out.

And if you have to lay people off as other businesses across the nation (like Chrysler) are expanding, then perhaps its not the fault of the president. Maybe the business just doesn't deserve to exist. Maybe it doesn't have economic merit.

I know people that were struggling and would have survived long enough until Romney was elected and helped them with taxes, EPA, and Obamacare.

They threw their hands up in the air and bailed out after Obama was elected.

Tell that to Obummer's head of the Treasury Department.

We have a Secretary of the Treasury! The Senate voted in Tim Geithner, despite the New York Fed chief's failure to pay $34,000 in taxes. "An honest mistake," says the White House's top flack. Oh?

Yes, taxes are a pain and everyone hates the paperwork. And paying taxes is absurdly complicated for employees of the International Monetary Fund, where Geithner worked at the time of his tax problems, because the IMF does not withhold payroll taxes but its employees must still pay them. And the IMF pays them an additional allowance so they can make those payments. On which they also owe taxes. That's totally confusing, right? Anyone might screw it up.

But Geithener, who has now paid his past-due tax bill, is not just anyone. We would be completely sympathetic to Geithner's claim that this was a goof because of the IMF's Byzantine payroll-tax status. Except that Geithner, when he worked at the Treasury Department in 1998, testified before Congress to explain the IMF's Byzantine payroll-tax status.

Shameless: NPR laughs at Hostess going out of business and eliminating thousands of jobs

To NPR, the shutdown of Hostess, which will result in the loss of thousands of jobs, is comical.
NewsBusters has the details:

The same laughing at pink slips occurred Saturday on National Public Radio’s game show Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. Players were given a question after NPR newscaster Karl Kasell asked in a low growl “Where are you, you spongy yellow delicious bastards?”

After a contestant answered that it was Hostess that shut down this week, Sagal started the wise cracks. “Hostess Incorpor

We could have elected a business man, but we elected a leach who has never had a job or created one.

With over 2,000 millionaires leaving the country every month, there will soon not be anyone with money to create any jobs.

The Mexicans say they are coming to America to work....that is pure BS. If they were coming for jobs they would NOT have voted for O. This just proves they are just coming for the freebees.....

You get what you vote for....so everyone just enjoy the freebees while they last......

We are going to sink lower than a 3rd world country...
