Not a bad topic to bring up during a debate.

How can a President tell business's what to do? Is not this the definition of communism. The biggest fool of a President this country ever has elected is destroying this country by his policies and DC slave administrations that destroy our freedoms and steal our wealth daily. I think we are in for the worst 4 years no matter if Romney is elected as he would have to spend years digging out of the hole the Obamanation regime has created to cripple America and enslave Americans.

Absolutely. Let’s hope someone from Romney’s crew picks this up.

Nope. Communism is when the State owns the business.

What obama is doing, private "ownership" with government control, goes by another name.

Fascism.

When Ubama leaves office in January, he better hop on AF1 one last time and have it drop him and Eric off in a non-extraditable country.

REmindin evryone that fascism was Mussolini’s system, and was a kind of politcal cartel involving business, labor, and even the Church. He enoyeda great reputation until he responded to the depression by agressions in Africa. His was a kindof national socialism without the radical racism of Hitler.

Laws mean nothing to Obama.

They don’t even slow him down. If he REALLY doesn’t like one he writes an Executive Order and changes it.

I think we should close Congress , we don’t need them with Obma making the laws,and they don’t seem to mind , they don’t even try to stop him.

IIRC, he also persecuted the Jews - was that at his own instance or was he just walking in lockstep with Hitler?

Itwas part of his deal with Hitler.Pretty much like Hiler’s other allies. One reason why Franco did not become a formal ally: Franco’s gradmother was Jewish.Just think how it would have changed the war with the Germans in Gibralter!

Obama doesn’t give any thought to the possibility that employed people facing the possibility of termination might want to start thinking about their options?

Understood. I was under the impression that Cpl. Schicklgruber had some Jewish ancestry as well.

I hear one large company is planning to mail “you could be laid off” slips to every single employee on Nov 2 (four days before election day).

Twitter has 379 tweets as new as 11 minutes last checked.

Good thing Government contractors don’t know how to use the internet or they would be aware of obamas blackmail.

Looks like obama wants to use taxpayers money, $360 million ??? to cover for the Warn Act so they agree to keep the emporer in office.

Or just lie about the threat after the election and hold the companies in violation of the Warn Act.

Strange - my daughter says at the FAA research facility where she works there are several big-screen TV’s which are constantly scrowling the latest news, including stories about expected mass cuts in jobs in their department following the election -she says you have to keep reading the small print to see that the cuts will be by retirement and attrition and a lot of people are upset that their jobs may go - the inference, although apparently not stated directly, is that Romney is going to be doing the cutting for smaller government......

http://www.dol.gov/compliance/laws/comp-warn.htm

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) protects workers, their families, and communities by requiring most employers with 100 or more employees to provide notification 60 calendar days in advance of plant closings and mass layoffs.

Employee entitled to notice under WARN include managers and supervisors, as well as hourly and salaried workers. WARN requires that notice also be given to employees’ representatives, the local chief elected official, and the state dislocated worker unit.

Advance notice gives workers and their families some transition time to adjust to the prospective loss of employment, to seek and obtain other jobs, and, if necessary, to enter skill training or retraining that will allow these workers to compete successfully in the job market.

Generally, WARN covers employers with 100 or more employees, not counting those who have worked less than six months in the last 12 months and those who work an average of less than 20 hours a week.

Employees entitled to advance notice under WARN include managers and supervisors as well as hourly and salaried workers.

Regular federal, state, and local government entities that provide public services are not covered by WARN.

The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) administers WARN at the federal level, and some states have plant closure laws of their own. A State Dislocated Worker Unit Coordinator can provide more information on notice requirements in a specific area.
DOL has no enforcement role in seeking damages for workers who did not receive adequate notice of a layoff or received no notice at all. However, they can assist workers in finding a new job or learning about training opportunities that are available.

The only problem is there are SO MANY topics to bring up at the debates and with the moron moderators they've chosen, I'm afraid Romney won't get a word in! Maybe that's Obama’s strategy: completely F up everything so it can't possibly all be debated or made into commercials!

I disagree. I believe that businesses, after they learn Obama has lost, will start planning expansions and hirings. That will be true especially if the Republicans increase their numbers in the House and get a few more in the Senate, because businesses will have some confidence that Obamacare will be overturned, and they won't have the crippling costs connected with new hires as they would have had.

When Romney/Ryan wins, I think we're gonna see billions in investment flow into the economy.
