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

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?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.
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.
Semper Fidelis, Semper Liber.
Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
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.
