This past week a CEO, David, whose full name has not been disclosed went on a radio show and revealed that he fired 22 of his 114 employees because President Obama was re-elected.
David told the radio host "elections have consequences" and explained he needs "to survive."
He told the station, “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.” Going on to say, “I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way.”
The company's name has not been revealed either.
If this sounds familiar, it might be because weeks before the election the CEO of Westgate Resorts, David Siegal, threatened to lay off his employees in a company wide email if Obama was re-elected.
Siegal has now come out to say his employees will receive raises after receiving a lot of bad press and probably losing business after the email was leaked.
