    Well of course that's true. I just think that the idea of "Wait! Romney won, now I can hire people" is silly. If you hope he gets elected and that conditions will improve to where you need to and can add employees, that's one thing. What if he fails too? Then it was a pretty silly thing to go and hire people right away, isn't it.

    Employees inside any given corporation can't control the voting behaviors of a nation. I mean it is beyond ridiculous.
    I once heard that working for a big corporation is kind of like living in a Communist country. Tow the party line or get "terminated." If something's not working, nobody wants to hear about it. Everything is somebody else's department.

    Having worked in a big corporation, there's something to that.

    If Romney wins, the ObamaCare incentive to put employees as part-time employees vanishes. That is a very real concern of employers and everytime the government adds new expenses for full time employees, more positions are changed to part time. From Home Depot to grocery stores, restaurants to shipping companies, more and more no longer hire people full time to avoid benefits costs.

    By people having to work 3 part time jobs to equal 1 full time job with benefits - adding their driving time and expenses between jobs, they basically work nearly every waking hour of their life.

    The other factor is elderly business owners who could retire anytime they want to. They like the extra money of their business and the don't want to lay off employees they had for years. But if it too much a hassle they will, and increasing numbers are. That also means they reduce their spending and do, obviously, all their unemployed employees creating a downward spiral. That downward spiral is extreme around here. Every month driving the strip there are another dozen empty store and shop fronts.

    It is not JUST the reality of Obama, his rabid anti-business and anti-wealth speeches create a perception. People do not make decisions on reality. The make decisions on what the perceive reality is.

    All of which may be true, but it seems pretty stupid to me to go ahead and bet your business on the election outcome rather than the outcome of the winners policies.

    Is it me, or is this kind of bullying a bunch of BS? I don't think it should be legal for employers to pull this kind of stuff. People have the right to vote for whoever they want.
    What a deceitful thread.

    The CEOs are just being stupid, "oh no, New regulations and I might have to adapt?" Talk about whining, Obama will probably win and give us another lackluster 4 years in which the sky won't fall and we won't be raptured by the glory of the free market either. It amazes me that anyone older than a teenager isn't mature enough to realize all this doom and gloom stuff never pans out.
    Adaptation includes increased costs. Depending on how tight a company may already be, than yes, jobs may be on the line.....

    If my employer were planning on shutting down if a certain event happened I would want to know about it. I think an employer (morally) has a responsibility to his/her employees to let them know as soon as possible any plans for layoffs or even potential layoffs. This employer should be applauded for his honesty rather than suddenly laying these people off without notice. He is giving them the opportunity to prepare and plan for their layoffs. I dont understand why some people think that a sudden out of the blue layoff would be better.

    Also can you please quote where anyone told anyone they couldnt vote for anyone they wanted?

    Personally it dont matter what an employer says. I have never been locked to a job and aint never gona be. Theres a saying that fits well. " I was looking for work when I found this job, and I am still looking." Employer gots the right to say what they please. As do the employees. I dont consider it to be anything out of the ordinarry, to make these letters. Employer wants to infuence people to think his way. Maybe it works maybe it dont. Either way no biggie.

    The thing is these employers are not "threatening" anyone into doing anything.

    They're acknowledging that if Pres. Obama's policies go into effect than they will have to lay people off.

    The college mentality adopted by the Democrat party has long passed the point of stupidity. Populist bull**** like "you didn't build that" and "businesses don't create jobs" are great for attracting the poor but at some point reality has to set in. It should be very obvious to everyone by now that corporations are doing just fine without the American worker. The very some companies Pres. Obama wants to see hire more are telling him that his policies are not conducive to hiring.
