THE BEST LAYOFF LETTER!
No wonder this guy is the boss, he is sharp! you cant be any fairer than this guy...

Dear Employees:
As the CEO of this organzation, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our Oresident and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%. But, since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty employees instead. This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and i did'nt know how to choose who would have to go. So, this is what I did. I walked through the parking lot and found 60 obama bumper stickers on our employees cars and have decideed these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change....So i gave it to them. I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

fake. CEOs don't have guts to do this. And there are grammar mistakes in the letter.

Has to be fake to think that 60 Obama supporters had jobs.

This person, if this letter is real, probably got sued by those 60 people because he blatantly violated their constituional rights. He can not layoff or fire people for how they voted.

Louisiana is an at will hire state, meaning an employer may terminate an employee for any reason. If the state in which this happened is one of these, the CEO has the right to do so; regardless of having a bumper sticker on their car.

Political views aren't a protected class. You can be fired for it.

That has to be the worst feeling to open up a termination notice.

If that were real, its sad.
If it were real, people lost their jobs and some of you think its funny.
Reguardless of political belief, most people working have bills to pay and families to take care of. Its not funny or clever or even remotely cute.

Voting for someone who costs business money isn't cute either. That tard has already cut my paycheck, and cost my company and industry.

Isn't that the truth? You can't name me ONE job that is secure today. Terrible leadership, a terrible economy, and Ovomit Care is looming. Anyone can lose their job at any minute. Obama's supporters can blame Bush, Clinton, or Abe Lincoln, but the fact is, is that times haven't been this turbulent since the Great Depression. Good luck to you, I hope we're lucky enough to survive the attack on our American Dream.

it is inevitable that companies are going to at best, reduce hiring because of all the increased taxes and health care costs. Many businesses are getting by until the economy gets better. The truth of the matter is that these businesses are the "wealthy" that everyone wants to raise taxes on. Their business income is what supposedly makes them in the higher tax bracket. The reality is that their money stays in their business to keep it going, not in their pocket. Who did everyone who voted for Obama think was going to get stuck with the bill? it's the working folks ...

It's funny that I don't know one peron who works who that voted for obama.Of all the people I've talked to, across the country with vendors, customers, suppliers, friends, etc no one voted for that wortless turd.
The only people i know that voted for him are a minority of people i know, and ones that don't work and want handouts.
