Don't fark with the democracy we laid down lives for.
This company's president should be in prison
Now

And in the 1700s he would have been horsewhipped in public.

We seem to get this story every election - don't we?

Hey rich assholes - this is not a clever way to make your employees vote the way you want to!!!

tell everyone at work you are voting for biden, then sue for discrimination when you get fired

At will.

Then again, everyone quits or is fired, he has no employees to intimidate, especially if no one applies.

Daniels declined to be interviewed on camera, but said: "I have been doing this for years. I have an obligation to let workers know what could happen, based on the outcome of an election. They certainly should vote for the candidate they want."

Also we'll be introducing a little thing called "scrip" instead of cash to replace your pay.  You'll be able to use it in our company store or to rent our company housing.  Long live the company!

If your layoffs would happen "late 2020" before the new president starts his term, your shaky-ass business is already doomed and/or you're a spiteful ass.

Either way, don't blame Biden.
 
2020-10-17 10:31:32 AM  
The guy was probably going to lay off employees anyway, and is a Trumpanzee, but decided to blame it on Biden because fark you.
Got it.

This schtick is getting tired...

Thank God for the secret ballot. And screw that git.

Vote however you'd like. Then look for a new job if you want. Any employer willing to engage in that kind of emotional extortion likely sucks in other ways too.

They know they farked up badly this time.
They fear retribution after the election.
I do hope they are right to fear the consequences of their actions.

I watched Dems sweep Dumbya's lies and crimes under the rug in the name of ""healing" and moving forward" bedore and I have little faith that the Dems will do anything different this time.

/Of course I just got up and haven't even had coffee yet so maybe I will feel differently later.

"Beginning in late 2020 or early 2021"

In other words, before the evil Biden administration even has a chance to take office? One suspects the impending layoffs aren't actually due to hypothetical cuts in military spending which wouldn't even materialize until 2022 at the earliest.

Papa John's CEO Says 'Obamacare' Will Up Pizza Price

"best" part of that, besides forever, is that it would have raised the price of their shiatty pizza by like $.25 a pie. A farking quarter is too much for Papa John to ensure his employees are cared for.  And that makes me wonder what he does when the price of cheese, flour, pepperoni etc goes up

No, that would be no better than the political retribution bullshiat he's pulling. However maybe, just maybe, a competitor would like to open a local facility and would like some federal tax credits.

Better to just update your resume and find an exit now than to work for such a giant asshole. Then, when all his employees (or even half) quit, and he goes under then he'll be left crying or trying to hire illegals (then report him to authorities).

One of my clients is a decent sized defense contractor, well one of its wholly owned subsidiaries is anyway. They don't worry about the political party in power because neither really cuts down the military budget. They change priorities a little bit, but the hardware is the same in any case. The CIO of the company, a reasonably decent fellow, noted the only thing that really changes is the delivery schedule. Oh, and he notes that sometimes the cyclical swings are a bit smaller under democratic administrations. You don't get wild profits, but you don't have the risk of YUUGGGEEEE losses either. So the stability makes some planning easier. That being said, they're not big fans of Trump. Too much volatility, too many changes with classic allies making things a complete clusterfark.

Of course they don't pull this shiat at all, with employees, because they're not idijits.

In the 1700s, every place on Earth went out of their way to insure no one who wasn't a 1%er could vote.  This man would have been lauded as a True Defender of [insert whatever nation you want].  The only people who would have been horsewhipped were his employees.  Then put in prison.  Then never get out because the room, board, and fees they would have been charged to be in prison would have vastly outstripped the meager pay they received before they lost their jobs for being in prison.  Well, actually, lost their jobs for daring to act like they had any rights - and then put in prison for daring to think they had any rights.  And I'm making the assumption all of the employees are white Christian men - get rid of any of those and they aren't going to prison, they are hanging from a tree at the edge of town.

TFA said $0.14. I remember seeing that and not much more in a headline and thinking, "Well good for Papa John speaking out in strong support of Obamacare!"

I actually used to get most of my pizza there - he eventually cured me of that.  You farkers with more sophisticated tastes may not realize that I think every single pizza I ordered from them came with a $5-$10 promo discount from their menu prices. They had a punchcard sort of program, were regulars in mailed and emailed coupons, and coupon aggregator sites usually had some even better deals (though those often had regional restrictions). Anyway, it was just amazing to hear him whine apocalyptically about the cost of healthcare for his employees while admitting that it was orders of magnitude less than their regular marketing costs.

You will not win that lawsuit in any "right-to-work" state unless your employer specifically states that you were fired for that reason.

But then again, they're Trumpers, so maybe they won't listen to their attorneys and put that in writing.

It's not illegal. At all.

It's just profoundly shiatty. And bad for business.

He'll pay in myriad other ways, difficult to measure & hard to put his finger on. Why the hell is turnover so high? Why do all my best guys up & leave for my competitors? Why am I less productive with the same staffing? What the hell's going on?
 
2020-10-17 11:01:55 AM  
Husband's company verbally says this every presidential election. I think they had a paper one once, but that may have lead to some legal issues. Last time Obama won like 3 people with Obama bumper stickers were fired, but wrongful termination suits are just this places thing. It was the only female engineer who was fired the day she informed HR of being pregnant that was possibly the least well thought out one. She totally won that lawsuit. He really needs to find a nontoxic office to work in. Really anyone who works at a place where management tells you how to vote or you could be fired should probably revaluate your employment options as they are probably screwing you over in multiple ways.

Nope, but here in Michigan:

This means that it is illegal for your employer, or anyone else, to buy your vote, or pay you to not vote.  It also means that your employer cannot fire or threaten to fire you to try to get you to vote a certain way.

You can't threaten someone to vote a certain way. Voter intimidating isn't just with guns, you can also do it with their job.
 
2020-10-17 11:08:42 AM  
So it's ok for someones employer to threaten and bribe them with their employment? It's starting to sound like capitalism just ain't compatible with representative government. Is that really the message they want to send? seems a little stupid.
