Wingnut Hero Fires Workers

There is an apocryphal story flittering about Greater Wingnuttia today claiming that in Nevada a CEO with 118 workers fired 22 workers because The Kenayn Usurper won re-election and now he needs to shrink his business to pay for extra regulations from Obamacare:

“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. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

Notice how he implies that he is going to fire Hispanic employees? In gambling that is called The Tell. It’s BS. But let’s look a little deeper…

Aside from the fact that he did not and it seems could not do the math quickly enough to say he now had 92 employees (and trust me, every business owner knows exactly how many people are on the payroll, especially after a layoff), wouldn’t say what his business is, it’s name, or how he plans to deal with presumably more demand and a smaller staff, you know, the whole thing is totally believable.

Perhaps he forgot to mention the backwards B that was carved on his face election night?

  1. I must have missed the massive wave of regulations Obama passed yesterday morning that requires deleting 20% of someone’s workforce.

    Either the business was on the ropes prior to the election, and the remaining 92 employees better be printing their resumes today, or he is just lying.

    Nah. That can’t be it.

    Unless, of course, he is a CIA agent also, with a supermodel wife.

  2. reminds me of an old Dilbert cartoon (back before Adams lost his mind and it was still occasionally funny). Ol Pointy-Hair is walking by a printer that is whirring away and thinking “Odd. Everytime I give a morale-raising talk, a bunch of resumes show up in the printer”

    Or, as we used to say re: one of my old bosses “the beatings will continue until morale improves”.

  3. Ah, to be delusional enough to fantasize a life where you’re such a victim that you must ‘punish’ employees you’re exploiting by exploiting a smaller number of them…

    Thank you, Mr. Nevada CEO who lacks the sack to sign his name and business, for clarifying your moral stature.

  5. Only an idiot would run his business that way. Laying off a chunk of the workforce on a mere whim. If this is true, it only proves a CEO can be a complete idiot. I actually hope it is true so this guy’s competitors end up eating his lunch by employing his cast off talent.
