Prior to the 2012 election, Stryker contributed millions to help Democrat candidates in his home state of Michigan. He also gave nearly $250 million to groups supporting gay rights, transgenderism, and the conservation of apes.

This all seems insane to most of us, but let's just think like a liberal who wants to collapse the system and invision those people without jobs as being set free!!!
There..do we all feel better now?
Over 60,000 laid off since the polls closed.
That’s over a thousand people set free in 57 states. Yeehaw!
add 96 ping
If only JON STRYKER would lose his job!
Really, does anyone think Jon Stryker cares about his employees? He has a ton of money sitting in banks and off shore for when he shutters the doors completely.
Union seeks halt to casino job cuts
INDIANAPOLIS | A union representing some of the 80 workers laid off last month by Gary’s Majestic Star casinos wants the Indiana Gaming Commission to stop casino companies from cutting jobs.
Carly Karmel, spokeswoman for Chicago-based Unite Here Local 1, which represents housekeepers, servers, bartenders and cooks, said up to 10 of their 27 laid-off members will attend Thursday’s gaming board meeting in Indianapolis asking “for regulations to stop out-of-state companies from tossing Indiana workers out of their jobs.”
