Vegas Employer: Obama Won – So I Fired 22 Employees
#1
Quote:LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.

“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”

Here’s an excerpt from the interview. Click the audio tab below to hear even more from this compelling conversation:

“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first.

I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.


“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner.

I wonder if those that got fired were ones with Obama stickers on their cars? Smile

Medical deductions at my place of employment are going to cost each employee an additional $50 every two weeks.

Employees started getting written notice yesterday while they were still celebrating Obama's victory. Dumbasses.

"Most of my employees are Hispanic"

With 122 employees? Construction or landscaping, me thinks. Since Vegas doesn't have much stuff to be landscaped, it would probably be construction. It certainly wouldn't be catfish farming.

THIS is John Galt....
From the article:

“Well unfortunately, and most of my employees are Hispanic — I’m not gonna go into what kind of company I have, but I have mostly Hispanic employees — well unfortunately we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

I have three very good lifelong friends, two own plumbing busineses, the third is a contractor, who told me they will have to lay people off.

Obama supporters are at the top of their lists.

This isn't an isolated incident.

Since yesterday there has been more than one business owner calling in to more than one radio show and mentioning that they're firing employees and otherwise downsizing their businesses in light of the election's results. The stock market has also been in a free-fall. I'm predicting that unemployment will be above the magic 8% by the end of this month and we're headed for an all-time high.

And they need to make it known loud and clear that Obamacare is one of the driving factors.

A number of part timers here are now asking how they go about getting their health care since they are working 30 hours a week, but aren't considered full timers to qualify for benefits under the old rules.

I can see companies cutting their hours to under 30 just to avoid the extra expenses. It's happening in a lot of places now. It's matter of survival for employers.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
