    We were told it was bound to happen. Companies holding off on laying off workers to see who would win the election...Obama won, now these companies are laying off...

    How Many Companies Announced Closings or Layoffs Since Obama Won A Second Term? | TheBlaze.com - has links to each news article for every company listed below.

    Daily Job Cuts - Layoff News , Job Layoffs 2012 / 2011 , Bankruptcy, Store closings, Business Economy News has even more companies listed.

    Energizer - 1,500 employees

    Westinghouse - 50 employees.

    Darden Restaurants - The company, which was among those who had received an Obamacare waiver in the past, is looking to limit workers to 28 hours per week. A full time employee that is required to have health insurance (lest the employer pay a fine) works 30 hours per week, as defined by the Obamacare law.

    West Ridge Mine - planning to close by 2014

    United Blood Services Gulf - will lay off approximately 10 percent of its workforce

    A layoff is tough enough for employees to deal with, imagine hearing the crushing news that your office is shutting down just before Thanksgiving and Christmas… Here are some of the business closings that were announced in just the past two days:

    Elections have consequences...these poor people are seeing those consequences first hand.

    It looks like I'm going to start the first week with 4 separate companies firing a total of 150 employees as these businesses close and relocate.

    The Dims won the election fair and square and fixing what ails our economy and whatnot is their task at hand. So good luck to them. Raise taxes, spend money, or whatever the hell else they think will work and we'll just see how it all turns out.

    Some of us have an idea how that's likely to be but the electorate has spoken and picked our path for us. What's coming might be an important learning lesson for some, but probably not for enough
    though.

    C'mon, everyone sing along....Que sera sera...
