LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obamas re-election.
David (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that elections have consequences and that at the end of the day, I need to survive.
Heres an excerpt from the interview. Click the audio tab below to hear even more from this compelling conversation: . . . Im just one guy with 114 employees well was 114 employees watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. Theres a tsunami coming and if you didnt think this election had consequences, just wait.

Local company closed its doors the day after election.
Produced solar glass.
Guess nobody saw THAT coming.
More lifetime government dole voters created.
I expect post-holiday layoffs to be EPIC and that we’ll climb back into the 9% range for unemployment.
Oh’ and then there will be calls for another stimulus only this time I’m quitting my job and will sit on my ass for two years if it’s offered.
Good. Elections have consequences. Welcome to Obama’s Amerika.
It’s their sacrifice for the state. It’s the least they can do for the cult. /sarcasm.
Big lay offs coming in medical device.
Layoffs are coming at my company as well. We have already started the list ... won’t be a merry Christmas for many.
I truly hope the only people laid off by this guy were Obama voters...I suspect this employer knows who is who.
Except that the Obamugabe-run BLS keeps shrinking the 'universe of available jobs vs job seekers' so that the unemployment number doesn't look so bad. If the same size 'universe of available jobs' is used that was in use the day Bush left office, REAL unemployment would be in the 20% range, and THAT just can't be allowed to tarnish his halo............................
I expect you're right. My employer announced back in September that layoff's would be likely by end of year unless economic conditions changed.
Looks like they're changing alright, and not for the better now that Obummer's been re-elected. I'm guessing they'll do layoff's somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas, just as they did last year.
In the last year, my employer has gone from just over 14,000 employees to just under 11,000 employees through layoff's and attrition (people retiring/finding jobs elsewhere.) It's damn' hard to get anything done right now with I.T. being literally gutted and they're threatening more layoff's.
Going to be an interesting end of year, Thanks Obama Supporters!
Yeah, I heard that Medicare was going to stop paying for Penis Pumps...................
I hope all 22 voted for Obama.
Then they added: Boeing said the changes were not a response to the threat of additional, across-the-board U.S. budget cuts due to take effect on Jan. 2, or the outcome of U.S. elections, but represented another step in its continuing drive to be more competitive while investing in technologies and people.
LOL..Obamacare is going to cost them, and every other company, a fortune.
He went to the parking lot and noted whose cars had Obozo bumper stickers........
These DUMBASS Obama supports have no clue what they have wrought! May they all get what they so truly deserve!
