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

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  Many were desperately holding out hope that Obamacare would be repealed so that they would not have to get rid of some of their employees.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

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. Had Romney won, many of these companies would now be hiring.

#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.  


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.


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.  


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 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.

    Something stands out to me …..Hitler was adored and admired and loved by the German people, and we all know how that turned out.

      Soon as you start making comparisons to Hitler,you’ve lost the battle. Ever heard of Godwin’s Law?

      • yzerman19wingnut

        have you ever wondered why this “phenomenon” exists? it might make sense if you take into consideration that those who make those assertions typically reference in political discussions the massive erosion of personal liberty in just a few short years. i could make the same phenomenon observations about any discussion about capitalism always leading to using the words “fair share.” you’re just observing the cliff we all see ahead.

  • Gwyn

    People vote for what was in their best interest. And clearly what Romney and his people offer was not in their best interest from their point of view.

    That the part of this election few want to see. They are so sure they have it right they can not believe so many others don’t agree.
    Yes, I heard about the man Fl. who said he was laid off worker also the ones who he felt had vote for President.
    Yes, that power what kind man wheel it.

    • QDLLC

      The problem with the average voter is that they DO NOT look beyond themselves and their own as far as what is important and the impact it will have on the world.

      Why vote your “best interest” if it ruins things for your kids and grandkids?

      Why vote for a benefit today that costs you three times as much 5 years down the road?

    • pavan

      You are correct. At least 50% had no interest in Romney’s plan to create jobs. Handouts are much better than jobs, and that’s what Obama is offering. Obama clearly understands the electorate better than Romney did. The politician who offers the most stuff will win.

  • Seen

    “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.”

    By removing employment that enables capital creation and accumulation, you starve the middle while enlarging the Working class, and your upper class aka financial and political elite are enriched and create massive wealth inequality. Distribution of Wealth is merely an added mechanism to pacify discontent in destroying class mobility and continuing wealth inequality.
    Warfare and Welfare State goes hand and hand, and it’s not surprising that the warfare state eventually turns inward. As best as I can tell, this happens in various forms time after time after time throughout the history of civilization similarly diplomatic history shows a very similar trend.

    As to universal healthcare and other comments like it, the Healthcare Reform was a mechanism to centralize the healthcare system under about 5 governmental fiefdoms of health insurance providers. It’ll eventually go bankrupt with the erosion of rights, liberties, and freedoms as well as work opportunities on top of immobilizing the class system.
    What is a public-private partnership between government and big businesses? This is known as Fascism/Corporatism respectively.
    What is a public-private partnership between government and big unions? This is relatively known as Communism.
    What is a public-private partnership between government, big businesses, and big unions? This is Communiterianism.
    This is essentially the left-moderate-right paradigm that we have today.
    Expect everything to simultaneously increase in cost and decrease in services, product, and etc; this is what happens virtually every time.
    Once the tipping point is breached, I would expect Holdren to be unleashed. You don’t place a Neo-Malthusian linear/simple system thinkers into positions of power without expecting to be able to use their viewpoints. Similarly, you don’t position your troops along a rivals border without expecting a fight or force them to submit with threat of force as a primary mechanism of so-called diplomatic relations…

  • ITS OK

    sorry for truth
    Regardless of who is president one man cant control the faith of America. money and greed control this country. what you don’t understand is our country was built on the fall of others. So why do you think most of us are having hard times. Its plain karma.. History always repeats itself. NO nations on top forever…

    I may be offline for the next week or so, while I sort through my, um… electrical and telecommunications issues, among other financially related matters which I will not go into at this time. So if you don’t see me posting regularly on this blog for the next week or so, you will know why.

    Some of you will be glad to hear this. To those who despise me and my posts – You are more than welcome to throw a party in celebration of my absence. (Bring your own tequila.)

    I will try my best to chime in from time to time though.

  • jrdrums

    Before you point your greedy finger at others, remember that Americans are the top 5% richest people in the world. Even our poverty salaries are more than the world average. I don’t see you even paying your daycare provider more than you pay to park your car.

    This rich envy crap has got to stop. When you’re giving your money to others, you may be in a position about other’s not doing it. Otherwise shut up!

      Value traded for value. People EARNING based on their effort, some with more than others some with less, but ALL self-reliant, minimal government, but still rules and enforcement. Sounds like the USA in 1780.

      that was an issue between hostess and the bakers union strike. it had nothing to do with the election what so ever. they filled bankruptcy when they did so they could have the books closed by the end of the fiscal year

  • Christopher Hitchler

    I don’t understand how people think a successful
    pizza man is stealing money. Who did he steal it from? Accept that he
    offered a service that people WILLINGLY paid for. You think he should be
    penalized for it. Your emotions cloud your logic. Because of Papa
    John’s success, thousands of families can live. Your life is noone
    else’s responsibility but your own (At least after you’re 18). Why don’t
    you have any gratitude for companies that voluntarily provide benefits?
    John earned that multi-million dollar house. He deserves it. You don’t
    have the right to take from anyone……..ANYTHING! Get over it, and
    learn what reward is for hard work please.

    • Vanessa A Coulter

      John (Papa John) worked for what he has achieved. It was not handed to him on a silver platter. He worked in high school at pizza restaurants, learning the trade. He was a hard working kid. I went to Jeffersonville High School and in the same graduating class as John (class of 80). He is a prime example of what good old fashion work ethics and entrepreneurism can do if you are willing to put in the long hours of hard work. I salute John Schnatter. Those who are jealous should just get out there and get a job. I hear Papa Johns is hiring.

      • Toni Shelton

        Are you saying, really, that he did this all by himself? If all his employees walked out on him and no one else would work for him, do you think, alone, he could keep his business running? No. So there are many people he needs to thank along the way for his success, especially his employees. But no, he decides to treat his employees like crap. The character of a man can greatly negate their achievements.

        • Linda Mayberry

          his employees got a paycheck and healthcare. They didn’t volunteer anything for Papa John’s. Their lives were better BECAUSE of of Papa John’s–if it wasn’t they were free to somewhere else.

      • Mike Ahearn

        power corrupts

      • myfanwy

        People aren’t jealous. They just think it’s hypocritical to deny employees an opportunity for health benefits because it will increase their costs by 14 cents per pizza sold. Having employees come to work sick because they can’t afford to see a doctor seems far more of a risk to me.

    • myfanwy

      Papa Johns seized upon this opportunity because they don’t want to offer healthcare benefits to their employees. You say, “Because of Papa Johns, thousands of families can live… .” Preposterous! Without affordable health care when they need it, thousands of employees in PJ franchises could likely go bankrupt, or worse, die.

      • purplewings

        Did it ever occur to you to buy your own health care? I understand that would leave you less playing money but that’s life.

    • Ned Lemieux

      It has nothing to do with his success, more power to him. It has to do with the fact that not only is he too cheap to pay a LIVING WAGE, (so no, sorry, but “thousands of families” cannot live on them), but he’s also too greedy to put any of that money he rakes in back into his company, his people. We like to say in America that family is sacrosanct, and our children are out investment. Well, it’s no different in the business world, where the employee is the future of the company, and if you mistreat or devalue them, your company/product will suffer. I’m not saying people should take anything from anybody, but using immoral business practices is just that, immoral. Rise up, sure. Do it on the backs of people without compensation? Deplorable. The American people are becoming fed up with greed, and it’s about time.

      • Linda Mayberry

        why don’t all you folks who being are taken advantage of just start your own businesses? What’s stopping you? Incentive? Sacrifice? A college education?

        • ILPatriot

          Linda, I always wonder that myself. Why don’t they just start their own businesses and pay everyone a “living wage” and provide gold-plated health insurance? They’re so good at telling everyone else how to run their business – maybe they should try it themselves.

  • Trademark Dave

    Shorter braindead wingnuts: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!

    Get the fuck out of this country. Iran would be more to your liking.

  • Julie Bradley

    perhaps businesses don’t understand: I get healthcare insurance through my job, but I pay for it out of my paycheck each month. I just get a better deal than an individual paying for insurance on his own because my colleagues and I are all paying for it together in a group. My job pays into my healthcare as well, but as a result pays lower wages to me than I would otherwise receive. So these businesses are being disingenuous if they’re saying they must give everyone health care. That’s not the case at all. They will have to make an effort to contract with a healthcare provider, and come up with some kind of a matching plan, but they don’t just give everyone insurance.

  • Fred_Evil

  • Karen Kennedy

    If you cannot afford fair benefits for employees, you should not be in business! A lot of businesses reap the profits (off the backs of the people) and leave the workers with enough to pay for housing and food and are then expected to save for retirement, pay their own health insurance and college etc.. Something is wrong here. America was built off the backs of the people who had health insurance and retirement plans from their employers … HELLO CHINA!

    Many of the company lay offs aren’t even here. And companies do this all the time before the end of the year. It has happened in this family many times at Christmas time. Hard to hear but we must persevere.

  • Mike Nash

    I’m 62 and I co-pay $104.22 per month for my Kaiser group health plan. You know what my business pays for my health plan? Over $900 per month. That tells me a lot. 1. That I am a valued employee. 2. That the company I work for cares about their employees and their health. These companies that are laying off employees don’t give a damn about their well being or their health. The ONLY thing they care about is their bottom line. Without healthy employees how can a company survive in order to make their work-lords richer?

  • Ned Lemieux

    Do you even hear yourselves? You pick and choose from all the people who are KNOWN TO BE AGAINST THE PRESIDENT, then say it’s all the president’s fault because of the ACA. The stoopid is running like a raging river through here. I simply cannot believe you prefer the alternative, which mittens brought up, in that somebody without health care can go to the ER. Are you really so stupid you don’t understand that’s the problem with our system? These aren’t “layoff” or “firing” lists, these are simply whiny, asinine people who are probably racist, greedy asshats crying about their precious bottom line, and trying to make a statement for a little attention. Congratulations, you’re what’s wrong with this country!
