This has really been troubling to me, as we believe we are family here and I didn’t know how to choose who will have to go first.
So, this is what I did. I strolled through our parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees’ cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off. I can’t think of a more fair way to approach this problem. These folks wanted change; I gave it to them."
Is this a publicly traded company? If so, I'd be happy to short any company that lays off workers based on political affiliation rather than productivity. This CEO (if he exists) sounds like a complete clown.
