    A Second CEO Threatens To Fire Employees If Obama Is Re-elected

    A Second CEO Threatens To Fire Employees If Obama Is Re-elected

    ďMany of you have been with ASG for over 5, 10, 15, and even 20 years. As you know, together, we have been able to keep ASG an independent company while still growing our revenues and customers. But I can tell you, if the US re-elects President Obama, our chances of staying independent are slim to none. I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away, and with that all of our lives would change forever. I believe that a new President and administration would give US citizens and the world the renewed confidence and optimism we all need to get the global economies started again, and give ASG a chance to stay independent. If we fail as a nation to make the right choice on November 6th, and we lose our independence as a company, I donít want to hear any complaints regarding the fallout that will most likely come. [...]

    I am asking you to give us one more chance to stay independent by voting in a new President and administration on November 6th. Even then, we still might not be able to remain independent, but it will at least give us a chance. If we donít, that chance goes away.Ē
    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.

    That is one of the reasons we have secret ballots. That said, I don't like it when employers do this. At the same time I see it done all the time in strongly democrat professions. I don't believe Ben & Jerry's hire republicans to begin with.

    It's absolute bs. He's hiring more for America than Asia or Europe according to his webpage ASG Jobs. Therefore, he is bs someone. One company I worked at brought in someone running for the house to speak to us and the CEO required we attend. I was very secure in my job so I kind of liked it because I got to ask very specific questions about the things she stood for. I don't think she was prepared for such specific questions because she didn't come across well. The CEO was fuming but I had a dotted line to the people who owned the company so he had to eat it. That was the last time anyone came to speak to us.

    It seems to me like that guy is attempting to:

    -hold the country hostage by threatening to fire some people
    -blackmail people


    regardless of whether he is bull****ting or not

    This is sick... Holding employers hostage via a vote is not ok.

    Sounds like they will be or should be job hunting anyway.

    There are certain topics that shouldn't be discussed at work. Politics, religion, sex, and addictions. It's one thing to have a political view, but it's wrong to force other people to participate. It bothers me that some people have no respect for others at work. I don't want to hear about the hooker you picked up last night, and I really don't want to hear about who you think I should vote for. I am perfectly capable of making an informed decision on my own.

    Maybe we should round up these CEO's and give them the Ludovico Technique. In my mind, what they are doing to their employees is just as bad.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg..........God forbid if Obama is ever reelected look for unemployment to go up to at least 15% and the biggest recession since the Stock Market crashed in 1929.

    The sky is falling and I didn't know?!?

    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.

    Would you prefer it if companies fired employees without advanced knowledge if Obama gets re-elected? I promise you that it'll happen.

    Call it blackmail all you want. I call it a warning and common courtesy.
