More of the distraction from the office of our President. Please do not elect
this horrible president to another term. He is ruining our country.
He isn't ruining the country, special interests and polarized political
factions are ruining this country.
From the DOL website:"The Worker Adjustment and Retraining
Notification Act (WARN) protects workers, their families, and communities by
requiring most employers with 100 or more employees to provide notification 60
calendar days in advance of plant closings and mass layoffs....Advance notice
gives workers and their families some transition time to adjust to the
prospective loss of employment, to seek and obtain other jobs, and, if
necessary, to enter skill training or retraining that will allow these workers
to compete successfully in the job market."It seems that
convincing contractors to disregard the WARN act would have negative impacts on
"workers, families and communities". And, quite frankly, seriously
jeopardizes the workers chances of finding employment to pay the bills. All of
this to get re-elected. This should raise serious questions about the Obama
Administration's commitment to helping the working class.
mcdugall,It was the Obama Administration that sent the memo, not polarized
political factions and special interest groups.
The worst of the white house posturing, is the promise the tax payers will cover
any law suites and penalties the companies will incur following the direction of
the white house. So to violate a democrat passed and bush unsigned law, and
then charge the American taxpayers for any settlements, shows great disregard
for the American workers and taxpayers.
This, the fast and furious, killing of our ambassador, and who knows what
else.WAKEUP PEOPLE things are only going to get worse if he gets a second term.
"Critics": The same right-wing whiners who complain about every breath
President Obama takes.Stay classy, DN.
Re: "Critics question legality of White House's WARN Act memo"This is nothing more than a taxpayer-funded Obama regime political
stunt.His offer to pay fines and fees for the contractors who
knuckle under shows Obama fully expects the layoffs to occur, he just
doesn't want the notices to make him look bad before the election. So -- as
he's done so often before -- he'll pay off supporters with money
filched from us, not with personal or campaign funds.This is not
just wrong -- on so many levels -- but illegal, as well, under federal election,
contracting, and ethics laws.If this had been done by a Republican,
the media would be demanding public "perp walks" and prosecutions. But,
Obama does it, and it merits not even a mention in most media outlets,
castigation of "critics" in those few that see it as newsworthy.Sad.
The real Obama is standing up.
I don't know how any body would vote for this guy -- We have had a running
sitcom playing on the national media for almost 4 years now starring Barack
obama,Nancy Pelosi,Harry Reid, and numerous other amateurs. It is time to cancel
this show in Nov.
Re: KJB1 Eugene, OR"Critics": The same right-wing whiners who
complain about every breath President Obama takes."The Perfect
Storm is coming at exactly the wrong time for Obama. It is time to send Obama
back home to Chicago and after last night's presidential debate the
undecided voters are going to help us accomplish that task.
