if layoff need to happen, they'll happen, thats just how businesses are and i think most people understand that BUT
this whole thing where companies are laying people off just a few days after the election? its just a political stunt because they're bottom-pained that their candidate of choice didn't win, geez louise guys everything didn't change so fast that you needed to fire a ton of people right away, we see through your lies!
In any case, universal health care is amazing. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to worry about doing things like playing sports, or just about any physical activity while worrying that I am going to get hurt and end up being down thousands of dollars so a doctor can fix me up. Or just worrying about any health problem for that matter which can cause some serious financial problems (like say, a burst appendix).
The reasoning for the layoffs in this case is just a cop out. Those workers were going to get the axe anyway, these companies just decided to put the blame on Obama's re-election in order to deflect some arrows.
Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.- Thucydides
There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.- Eugen Weber
It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.
According to Businessweek, the CEO of Papa John's earn $2.3 million a year. So let's say he took a 50% pay cut. How many employees could he keep? Even if we just counted their salaries, that's maybe 20 employees. If we factor all of the costs of employing somebody, it's probably more like 4 or 5. If he took a 100% pay cut, he might be able to keep 10. Maybe. Well, I guess it'd be 9, seeing as he would no longer have his own job.
So I'm assuming none of you americans is taxed 35% like I am. Stop whining.

getting mad a business for wanting to make profit. priceless. get mad all you want, i good god damn guarantee you that they will continue to do what they do. to. make. munnies!
anyways, unless it ts corporate level employees who the fuck really cares. its a min wage job, these people can just go out and get themselves another min wage job.... its not hard
A lot of large corporations are against obama. They'd rather have a republican candidate because its better for them.
It's common knowledge that republicans are for bigger business and democrats are for bigger government.
As far as which is better or worse, that's your opinion. I don't care much for either party.
I've seen a few CEO's say the same thing, if obama gets re-elected they would have to lay off people.
Employees are dispensable to them, their profit is not.
A liberal president might mean higher corporate taxes, obamacare, etc etc
To keep making the same amount of money, they will just layoff employees and make the rest pick up the slack.
