Chrysler celebrated Election Day by giving their employees a day off to go vote.

The car company openly expressed their support for President Barack Obama after he decided to help bail out the industry. The car manufacturer accounts for one in eight jobs in Ohio.

Chrysler’s vice president of design Ralph Gilles sent out a tweet about the free day by posting “Let’s go!”

Last week, CEO Sergio Marchionne responded to false claims made by Mitt Romney accusing the company of moving their Jeep operations to China.

The company continued to have the President’s back when Gilles issued a retort to Donald Trump’s announcement last week by tweeting: “you are full of —-!”

Over a decade ago, auto companies gave their employees the day off to participate in the election leaving many GOP officials unhappy.

“That will be the biggest corporate contribution in American political history,” said Gov. John Engler at the time. “Because the corporations will be paying the wages and the U.A.W. will be using the manpower to attempt to defeat Republican candidates.”

    Now that’s the way a responsible business owner should treat it’s employees. I don’t want to think about how David Siegel/West Gate Resorts CEO(who warn his employees not to vote for Pres. Obama or they may lose their jobs) is going to treat his employees now that Pres. Obama has been re-elected.
