President Obama won and Vegas Employer fires 22 Employees

During the election we know that some employers warned their employees not to vote for the president. They told them that some of them would lose their jobs if the president was re-elected. The linked story is about an employer who made good on his threat. Read the link and share your thoughts.

    His earlier comment , as I viewed it , was not a threat but a heads up .

    The range of votes was 0-114 regardless of the vote .
    Obama could have received all , none or votes in between .
    Romney could have received all , none or votes in between .

    Those terminated could have voted all for Obama , all for Romney or mixed votes .

    He could have kept all employees and made many part-time 20 hour employees .

    To be accurate, there were no stories reported that I am aware of where employers warned their employees not to vote for Obama. That is illegal. Many employers did however, warn their employees of the financial ramifications on their business of another Obama administration. The adverse financial impact will result primarily from the implementation of Obamacare.

    While there are many who relish the idea of additional benefits being mandated by the government, they are never without consequence. We will see many of these situations where employees are either laid off or have their work hours reduced to part time status.

      Key to your statement that you are aware of. Several CEO warned their employees about the prospect of voting for the president. Papa Johns, Home Depot and several others told their employees to think long and hard regarding their vote. I advise you to look it up. No they could not go into the voting booth with them to assure results but threats were made.

    He said it was going to lay people off 30 days before the election. Nothing to see here.
