CEO Keeps Promise to Lay Off Workers If Obama Elected
Published: Friday, 9 Nov 2012
Robert Murray, the chief executive of Ohio-based coal provider Murray Energy, began laying off a small number of employees this week after Republican challenger Mitt Romney lost his bid for the White House.
The privately-held company, which had about 3,500 employees before the layoffs began, fired more than 150 employees at three locations this week. A spokesman, Gary Broadbent, said the layoffs were ongoing and these were just the latest announcements.
The layoff notices blamed Obama’s “war on coal” for the job cuts.
