As Twitchy reported in September, the Obama administration made moves to encourage defense contractors to delay layoff announcements until after the election, offering to reimburse contractors for any legal costs incurred in not informing their affected employees. Lockheed Martin seemingly took the offer,

Lockheed Martin bows to administration, delays layoff notices until after election

Update: FreedomWorks has an extensive list of even more post-election layoffs resulting directly from Obama policies.

Among the bigger names: Welch-Allyn, Dana Holding Corporation, Stryker, Boston Scientific, and Medtronic. The confirmed post-election jobs death toll from this list stands at 5,263 jobs, but much more are on the way, including a 5 percent cut in the huge Stryker workforce, a probably comparable reduction of Dana’s even larger staff, and talk of jobs being sent to China. The transition to part-time labor I mentioned above is also discussed.

Update: Twitchy.com relays the Twitter messages of more small business owners who are preparing to batten down the hatches and issue pink slips.

Another round of layoffs announced on Wednesday (day after election)

came from Hawker Beechcraft, which announced it would close facilities in Arkansas, Arizona, and Texas, resulting in 400 jobs lost, while another 170 jobs would be cut from corporate offices in Kansas and Arkansas.

Also on the day after the election, the CEO of the Papa John’s pizza restaurant chain, John Schnatter, told a small community college audience in Florida that ObamaCare would likely result in cuts to employee hours by franchise owners seeking to escape the law’s mandates by eliminating full-time positions, a move he described as “common sense” and “lose-lose.”

So you learned nothing from this last election and you STILL think fear mongering is the way to go?

It really only proves your cowardice. Nothing else.

I'm sorry that you think telling the truth and providing information is fear-mongering.

Wait!!!

I'm NOT sorry. Obama asked companies NOT to send out lay-off notices until after the election. I knew this was coming, but apparently the media forgot to inform the public until after they voted.

You must have been on vacation with a few news agencies reported that Obama wanted companies to ignore the WARN act and NOT send out notices of layoffs as required by law. The administation offered to pay any penalties for disregarding this act.

I have previously put this information on here to alert folks.

Where is your proof of this? I heard of one company that talked about giving 60-day notices of layoff. Since you've already posted the information it should be easy for you to bring it up again. Thanks.

I wonder how Bush will be responsible for this?!

It'll be an entertaining 4 years.

Surprising that Puerto Rico wants to be a state now. That's just dandy.
