Best Layoff Letter Ever
The BEST way of handling layoffs I have heard .... No wonder this guy is the boss, he is sharp! You can't be any fairer than this leader...
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President 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 of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go.
So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty 'Obama' bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a fairer way to approach this problem. They voted for change......I gave it to them.
I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

So, you support firing people for their political beliefs? Really wonderful.
I have an idea. Let's have a single payer system to take the burden off of businesses.In memory of those who have died protecting a society that hasn't always deserved it.

It's also Communist. Seriously, the communism I grew up to hate and fear was a system where people would be punished for having a difference of opinion and possibly for acting on it.
BTW, the businesses talking about laying people off and so forth are multi-million dollar businesses. How often do you hear of this happening in small businesses? No. They're multi-million dollar businesses often not hiring full time anyway. I think they're attention seekers throwing a temper tandrum for their cause.In memory of those who have died protecting a society that hasn't always deserved it.

I hate to be humorless, but businesses really are doing stupid shit and blaming it on Obama. And some folks are buying into it.
WASHINGTON (CNNMoney) -- In 2010, chief executives at some of the nation's largest companies earned an average of $11.4 million in total pay -- 343 times more than a typical American worker, according to the AFL-CIO.
"Despite the collapse of the financial market at the hands of executives less than 3 years ago, the disparity between CEO and workers' pay has continued to grow to levels that are simply stunning," said Richard Trumka, AFL-CIO president.
According to the AFL-CIO, in 1980, CEOs at the largest companies received 42 times the pay of the average worker. In 2000 the gap hit a high, with CEOs making 525 times the average worker.
In 2010, the gap narrowed with CEOs making 343 times the average worker, said Trumka, who himself makes roughly four times the average worker.

So what business is this of yours sir?
As a stock holder my retirement makes money based on the performance of CEO's. The paycheck of CEO's is based on their performance. So if they get a percentage and do REALLY well for my retirement you want to complain about how much they make? I hope they make 10 times that amount if their pay is based on how muh money they make for me. I've been a commissioned salesman most of my life. Would you limit my paycheck just because i sold more than others?
You're in the wrong country. Try socailism. Try anything, just somehwere else.

Demagoguery and class warfare like this makes one look petty.
If those guys perform, they get paid. If not, the board of directors lets 'em go. Simple as that.U.S. Army, Retired

As for the political part: The retarded liberals voted for this. So whatever they get is justly justified... The wanted it, now they can own it.

I like the idea of a system that is both public and private. Many will still want private insurance and will buy it.
Truth is you have a big chunk of this country demanding healthcare reform. They're sick of the greedy, insane system that we have now. At the same time, you have companies complaining about their burdens (all the while they spend too much on a CEO and waste money in multiple areas). I bet in about twenty to fifty years, there's going to be a single payer system to make things easier on companies.In memory of those who have died protecting a society that hasn't always deserved it.
