Vegas employer fires 22 because Obama won election

Posted By on Thu, Nov 8, 2012 at 5:03 PM


Remember how we posted a few weeks about about the letter Westgate Resorts' David Siegel sent to his employees filled with thinly veiled threats to fire people if Obama was re-elected? Well, this Las Vegas businessman who called into his local radio station claims to have one-upped Siegel. Like Siegel, he also told his employees before the election that if Obama won, he'd take drastic measures:

“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner.

“Well unfortunately, and most of my employees are Hispanic — I’m not gonna go into what kind of company I have, but I have mostly Hispanic employees — well unfortunately we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive."

Then, when Obama won,  he punished them by firing 22 people immediately after the election. Listen to the interview with the radio station below.
