So What's It Like to Get Fired Because President Obama Was Re-Elected? - Politics - The Atlantic Wire


I worked at a coal mine that decided today to layoff over 40 employees and the only reason that was given was that "America has betrayed coal miners" by re-electing President Obama. Despite the fact that nothing has changed in the two days since the election they decide to lay off employees. I've seen how corrupt the company can be over the years and am fairly certain the layoffs are just a way to make the President look bad.

HOW MANY BUSINESSES HAVE ANNOUNCED CLOSINGS OR LAYOFFS SINCE OBAMA WON A SECOND TERM?


Do elections have consequences? If you have been paying attention to the financial markets, you might think so. Wall Street has had two horrible days since President Obama won a second term.
However, stock prices are not the only thing taking a hit. It appears that the job market is also suffering. In the last 48 hours, the following major corporations have announced layoffs in America (links take you to news stories about the layoffs ? with details from the companies):
? Energizer -
The St. Louis-based company said Thursday that it expects to shed about 1,500 employees. When finished, the restructuring should lead to $200 million in pretax yearly savings, Energizer said. It aims to have most of its restructuring steps finished by the end of September 2014.

? Exide Technologies -
Exide Technologies announced Thursday that it will be idling its lead-recycling operations in Laureldale and laying off 150 workers, effective no later than March 31.

? Westinghouse -
Westinghouse Anniston, the contractor responsible for shutting down Anniston?s chemical weapons incinerator, has reduced its workforce by another 50 employees.

? Research in Motion Limited -
Research in Motion Ltd., the maker of BlackBerry smartphones, laid off about 200 people at its U.S. headquarters in Irving on Wednesday, according to a source close to the company who did not want to be named.

Lightyear Network Solutions -
More than one dozen employees at a Pikeville company lost their jobs this week. Officials with Lightyear Network Solutions said they are consolidating offices in Louisville and Pikeville to save money.

? Providence Journal -
The Providence Journal Co. laid off 23 full-time workers Wednesday as part of a cost-cutting effort, including 16 members of the Providence Newspaper Guild and 7 non-union employees.

? Hawker Beechcraft -
The company says 240 employees will lose their jobs with the closing of Hawker Beechcraft Services facilities in Little Rock, Ark.; Mesa, Ariz.; and San Antonio, Texas.

? Boeing (30% of their management staff) -
Boeing Co. said Wednesday it plans to employ 30% fewer executives at its Boeing Defense, Space & Security unit by the end of 2012 compared to 2010 levels.

? CVPH Medical Center -
CVPH Medical Center has handed pink slips to 17 employees. The layoffs ? nine in management and eight hourly staffers ? are part of an effort to ?help bolster the hospital?s financial position in 2013 and beyond,? a press release said.

? US Cellular -
The move will result in 980 job cuts at U.S. Cellular, with 640 in the Chicago area, according to a spokeswoman. The cuts are slightly under 12 percent of the approximately 8,400 total employees U.S. Cellular had at the end of the third quarter.

? Momentive Performance Materials -
About 150 workers at Sistersville?s Momentive Performance Materials plant will be temporarily laid off later this month, officials said this week.

? Rocketdyne -
About 100 employees at Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, most of whom work in the San Fernando Valley, were laid off Wednesday in response to dwindling government spending on space exploration, the company said. The layoffs were effective immediately, and 75 percent of them came at the facilities on Canoga and De Soto avenues, which employ about 1,100 people. The company has six sites across the Valley.

? Brake Parts -
The leader of an automotive parts plant in Lincoln County has told state officials that there are plans to lay off 75 workers starting in late December?The layoffs are expected to start Dec. 28 and continue in the first quarter of 2013

? Vestas Wind Systems -
Vestas Wind Systems A/S (VWS) is seeking to sell a stake of as much as 20 percent and said it?s reducing headcount by 3,000 to raise the staff cuts by the biggest wind turbine maker to almost a third over two years.

? Husqvarna -
Husqvarna AB (HUSQB), the world?s biggest maker of powered garden tools, plans to cut about 600 jobs in a move that will save 220 million kronor ($33 million) a year by 2014.

? Center for Hospice New York -
The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care plans to temporarily lay off as many as 40 employees next year as it embarks on a major renovation of the inpatient unit at its Cheektowaga campus.

? Bristol-Meyers -
Bristol-Myers Squibb is following up its lackluster third-quarter results with almost 480 layoffs. As Pharmalot reports, the company notified the New Jersey government that it would scale back in Plainsboro, which means the cuts will hit its sales operations.

? OCE North America -
Trumbull printer- and scanning-equipment provider Oce North America, Inc. will lay off 135 workers in three Connecticut communities, including East Hartford, according to its notice with the state Labor Department.

? Darden Restaurants -
The company, which was among those who had received an Obamacare waiver in the past, is looking to limit workers to 28 hours per week. A full time employee that is required to have health insurance (lest the employer pay a fine) works 30 hours per week, as defined by the Obamacare law.

? West Ridge Mine -
In its statement, UtahAmerican Energy blames the Obama administration for instituting policies that will close down ?204 American coal-fired power plants by 2014″ and for drastically reducing the market for coal.

? United Blood Services Gulf -
United Blood Services Gulf South region, the non-profit blood service provider for much of south Louisiana and Mississippi, will lay off approximately 10 percent of its workforce. It was a hard decision to make according to Susan Begnaud, Regional Center Director for the Gulf South region.
A layoff is tough enough for employees to deal with, imagine hearing the crushing news that your office is shutting down just before Thanksgiving and Christmas? Here are some of the business closings that were announced in just the past two days:

of course nothing happened over the next two days, try the next year or so when obamacare comes into play, and the bush tax cuts are allowed to expire, and tax hikes on the rich are imposed.

whoever wrote that is severely mentally deficient.

This, and the reinstatement of the brady bill, along with the clinton assault rifle ban. what a joke. its funny how Ive grown up in a house full of loaded guns, where I can easily reach them if needed, but I NEVER EVER thought about playing with them. And I never shot myself or my buddies either. Because I was taught correctly. Ill save the rest of my rant for another topic. Had to get that out.

Its one thing in 2008 when Obama stated over and over that he would end bi-partisanship. He was whatever we wanted him to be. But he was just like every other candidate for either party.

I think DOMS is a perfect example of why gun control even gets pushed. I grew up in an age too when guns were kept on an unlocked display rack and they were what they were. they were a tool for hunting, target shooting, and if need be protection. They were not something unstable people used to have a temper tantrum with. back then it mattered to simply be a decent human being and handle yourself like a man and not act like a little bitch having a fit.

and DOMS,for the record... good girls don't think performing oral sex on a man is a bad thing and we don't need facials because we aren't opposed to swallowing. maybe you should settle your sexual anger issues with your wife and keep them out of open chat. ;)

I'm proud that you've reigned in your craziness enough to pretend to take the moral and intellectual high ground. Of course, the next time you snap, it's gonna be a doozie.

I read once that bitterness can lead to cancer. It know seems plausible.

you would have to be retarded to believe those company's are closing because Obama got re-elected and not from the simple fact that their profits have fallen due to the reduction of consumption in the US, an effect from the 2008 recession.

more company's will be closing and laying off workers when the global recession from the EU (now in full recession) hits the US. it will be 2008 all over again except with worst circumstances.

you guys should read the financials and not political websites if you ever want to learn or benefit from the flavor of capitalism practiced in the US.

If you mean dodging the actual arguments and then posting links to other topics to change the subject then yes you've definitely held your own.



damn I love coffee
