Within hours of President Obama's re-election, companies both large and small across the country began announcing major layoffs, along with store and plant closings.
Unfortunately, massive layoffs have become a weekly occurrence as companies begin to cope with the harsh realities of a second Obama term.

We are going to try, got our website and our business name registered with the state, now we have to find a food manufacturing partner. We are going to try to go commercial with our salsa recipe, everybody says its the best, we aren't afraid to at least try. Umpqua Salsa!
I wasn’t laid off but I was furloughed this week. It’s tough to miss a week’s pay.
Hope for Change.
Wouldn’t want to spoil 0bama’s labor day weekend.
This doesn’t include companies like Boeing that have small layoffs frequently so they don’t have to tell the Dept of Labor about it. They just had another layoff this week.
This bastard has been in office for 5 years and hasn’t done squat about unemployment. I know, cause I’m living this hell...
