    Share This Massive List Of Post-Election Firings And Layoffs With Everyone You Can

    By Michael, on November 9th, 2012

    The victory by Barack Obama on election night has resulted in a huge wave of firings and layoffs all over America. A large number of businesses seem to have suddenly shifted into panic mode.

    The number of layoff announcements that we have seen in the last 48 hours has been absolutely shocking. So why is this happening? Well, the truth is that the federal government is absolutely suffocating small businesses all over America with rules, regulations and taxes.

    If you have never tried to run a small business, then you have no idea how oppressive this system actually is for people that are trying to run small businesses successfully.

    It has steadily gotten worse over the years no matter who has been in the White House and no matter who has controlled Congress. So we shouldn't put 100% of the blame on Obama.

    Bush massively expanded government and made things harder on small business people too.

    But what many small business people were looking for on this election day was just a little bit of help.

    Many were desperately holding out hope that Obamacare would be repealed so that they would not have to get rid of some of their employees.

    Many were hoping to get a little bit of relief from the crippling regulations and taxes that are absolutely crushing them.

    But now that Barack Obama has been given another four years, they understand that there is no hope on the horizon and that things are only going to get worse.

    So they are making the hard decisions that they feel are necessary in order to survive in this economic environment.

    And I certainly don't blame them.

    You only want to have employees if you can make a profit on them.

    And in this environment it is getting harder than ever to make a profit on an employee.

    You see, the truth is that what you cost your employer goes far beyond your salary or your hourly wage.

    I think many of you would be absolutely shocked if you learned how much it actually costs your employer to employ you. And now thanks to Obamacare, that cost is going to go up even more.

    Many businesses are not even feasible at all in this economic environment. Many small businesses had been holding out hope that somehow this election might turn things around and make it possible for them to keep going, but when Obama won it was kind of like the straw that broke the camel's back.

    You can't do what the federal government and the state governments are doing to us and expect to have a thriving economy. They are choking the life out of us.

    New businesses and small businesses are supposed to be at the heart of our economic system.

    Unfortunately, the environment that has been created is absolutely killing them. This is a recipe for disaster.

    In a previous article, I noted that the number of jobs created at new businesses in 2010 in the United States was less than half of what it was back in the year 2000.

    Now we can expect that number to get even worse and we can expect large numbers of small businesses to shrink in size or close their doors completely.

    The following is a list of some of the post-election firings and layoffs that we have seen since Tuesday night...

    #1 Utah
    A Utah coal company owned by a vocal critic of President Barack Obama has laid off 102 miners.

    The layoffs at the West Ridge Mine are effective immediately, according to UtahAmerican Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Murray Energy Corp. They were announced in a short statement made public Thursday, two days after Obama won re-election.

    The layoffs are necessary because of the president's "war on coal," the statement said. The slogan is one used frequently during the election by Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray, who was an ardent supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    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.
    #2 Ohio
    I work for the oldest and largest health insurer in the state of Ohio in the underwriting department. At 9 a.m.this morning, my department (about 50) were called into a meeting in the executive boardroom. We were informed that due to a provision in the healthcare 'reform' effective 2014 called guarantee issue, our services would no longer be needed, and we were offered severance So Obama got to keep his job, and we lost ours. It is maddening that some tyrant 400 miles away can have such a ruinous effect on peoples lives.

    #3 Nevada

    A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s 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.”

    Here’s an excerpt from the interview. Click the audio tab below to hear even more from this compelling conversation:

    [I]“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.

    #4 Posted below is a list of layoff headlines from the past few days that was posted on AmericanThinker.com...


    Obama was "fired up" and so were the voters, and so now, the mass firings begin. Here's a collection of today's headlines. Please say a prayer for the families who will be suffering.

    #6 The following is a list of companies that will be laying off workers just because of Obamacare that was compiled by FreedomWorks...
    Dana Holding Corp.

    As recently as a week ago, a global auto parts manufacturing company in Ohio known as Dana Holding Corp., warned their employees of potential layoffs, citing "$24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses". After laying off several white collar staffers, company insiders have hinted at more to come. The company will have to cover the additional $24 million cost somehow, which will likely equate to numerous cuts in their current workforce of 25,500 worldwide.

    Stryker

    One of the biggest medical device manufacturers in the world, Stryker will close their facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs in December. Worse, they plan on countering the medical device tax in Obamacare by slashing 5% of their global workforce - an estimated 1,170 positions.

    Boston Scientific

    In October of 2009, Boston Scientific CEO Ray Elliott, warned that proposed taxes in the health care reform bill could "lead to significant job losses" for his company. Nearly two years later, Elliott announced that the company would be cutting anywhere between 1,200 and 1,400 jobs, while simultaneously shifting investments and workers overseas - to China.

    Medtronic

    In March of 2010, medical device maker Medtronic warned that Obamacare taxes could result in a reduction of precisely 1,000 jobs. That plan became reality when the company cut 500 positions over the summer, with another 500 set for the end of 2013.

    Others

    A short list of other companies facing future layoffs at the hands of Obamacare:

    • Smith & Nephew - 770 layoffs
    • Abbott Labs - 700 layoffs
    • Covidien - 595 layoffs
    • Kinetic Concepts - 427 layoffs
    • St. Jude Medical - 300 layoffs
    • Hill Rom - 200 layoffs

    A lot of other businesses are going to reduce the number of employees they have or reduce the average work week in order to avoid the Obamacare insurance coverage mandate that will soon be implemented.

    This is how CNSNews.com describes the choice that many employers will be facing...
    That section, known as the employer mandate, requires any business with 50 or more full-time employees to provide at least the minimum level of government-defined health coverage to those employees. In other words, a business must provide insurance if it has 50 or more employees working an average of just 30 hours per week, which is 10 hours per week fewer than the traditional 40-hour work week.

    Thus, by cutting employees’ hours to ensure they average less than the 30 per week, employers could potentially avoid the cost of providing the minimum insurance levels mandated by Obamacare.

    So if your company trims the number of workers to just under 50 or starts going to "29 hour work weeks", then you will know who to blame.

    All of this is complete and utter insanity. We are committing national economic suicide.

    But perhaps we deserve this. After all, Americans willingly chose their leaders on election day. It is getting harder and harder to deny that our politicians are truly a reflection of who we are as a nation.
    The American people chose this path, and now we get to see where it leads us.

    Surprise! Jobless Claims Up 78,000 Week After Election; PA, OH Worst Hit





    by Joel B. Pollak 15 Nov 2012, 5:36 AM PDT
    The Department of Labor has announced that new jobless claims rose by a staggering 78,000 in the first week after the election, reaching a seasonally-adjusted total of 439,000. Over the past year, and in the weeks leading up to the election, jobless claims were said to be declining, dipping as low as 339,000, with the media proclaiming that they had reached the "lowest level in more than four years." Now, suddenly, the news seems far less rosy.

    From the Department of Labor press release this morning:


    In the week ending November 10, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 439,000, an increase of 78,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 361,000. The 4-week moving average was 383,750, an increase of 11,750 from the previous week's revised average of 372,000.


    Some of the new claims, especially in New Jersey, were due to Hurricane Sandy--but these were offset by a decline in claims filed in New York. The highest numbers of new filings came from Pennsylvania and Ohio, where there were thousands of layoffs in the construction, manufacturing, and automobile industries.

    Both states had been targeted by the presidential campaigns. President Obama highlighted his record of job creation in Ohio in particular, focusing on the automobile industry. The state reported 6,450 new jobless claims in the week after the election--second-highest after Pennsylvania, which recorded 7,766 new claims.
