Las Vegas CEO Allegedly Fires 22 Workers Over Obama’s Re-Election

  • 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.

    1. If these workers were fired post election result,this is nothing more than a partizen act of unwarented retribution by a right wing zelot,upset because his candidate lost the election.he thinks he can persume to know who these employees voted for based on the election return data. and if any worker was let go,laid off or had their hours cut they should join together in some kind of class action suit to teach these employers that we ain’t havin’ it!

    2. Reminds me of when a slave master would get mad and sell off some of his slaves to make a point to the rest of them …fear and intimidation. Sad

    3. This CEO wanted to increase unemployment, so that he can make the ‘haters’ say “SEE!! Obama’s messing up already!!”. Not gonna happen.
      The filthy-rich are upset, because they were hoping to get their way with Mitt in charge, but WE THE PEOPLE, had a say in it.

    4. You are right we just need to make sure we don’t support him!
      but more important, support those who support you.
      And we need to realize that the laws in this country will always favor the rich and business owners, and that is where the power is at, so we need to not only be business owners, but we also, once we are successful,we then need to encourage and help mentor more to become business owners,, and after being in business myself for over twenty years,I have helped many to also become business owners,and that makes me very proud. Too many of us fail to invest in ourselves , anyone who wants to make a change look me up. Check out my youtube video look up ambit Swqueen@comcast.net

    5. Listen!
      Just don’t go to his store , but more important, support those who support you.

    6. is anyone aware of what the Supreme Court is attempting with the Voters Rights Act of 1965? You better find out, because this will affect every person of Color’s rights for voting.

    7. This was all about intimidation. He needs to be brought up on charges for interfering with the voting process and intimidation. How is it that Obama supporters are labeled “intimidators” to ensure a fair voting process, but when the GOP supporters say or do anything it’s all of a sudden a constitutional right? When the UN wanted to monitor the swing state voting places, they were threatened with lawsuits and told to stay 300 feet away. When the Black Panthers policed the polling centers in Philly, they were labeled “Obama’s Black Panthers” and threatened.
      No one said anything about this CEO, or anything about the fact that the company that produced the voting machines for Ohio is OWNED by Mitt Romney’s son. Glad this election wasn’t a repeat of 2004. You lost. Get over it bully.

    8. He is right when he said the election has consequences and so does his irresponsible actions – when we find out what his business is we should have a nationwide boycott. He didn’t even wait to hear the POTUS speak today – he had 114 employees so I’m going to go out on a limb and say he’s a small business man and if the Republicans work with the Pres – small businesses won’t see an increase in taxes. Shame on him – Let’s boycott – let’s boycott

    9. I actually saw a special about Ethopians were some of the oldest of Jewish descent and that the Jews mentioned in his comment don’t acknowledge them yet they have the bloodline from dna test that prove it.

    10. Sounds to me like a clear cut violation of first amendment rights. Even though he probably doesn’t know how the 22 voted, to threaten everyone with layoffs if they vote their conscience seems to be a violation of freedom of speech.

    11. Can we say ” Class Action”. This is grounds for suing because he admitted on national radio why he fired 22 people. I hope they obtain an attorney because it realy sounds like they have a case. I have those 22 people in my prayers.

      PS. I would sure like to know the background on the 22 people (race, gender, sexual preference, the whole nine yards).

    12. Some enterprising researcher will find David and his company. One possible start is to find out whether the radio station has archives and who that radio host was.

    13. africanwarrior: My brother, do NOT confuse the jewish people of the bible with the jewish people of the holocust. Judism is a religion not a race. The people of jewish faith during biblical days in egypt looked much like you and I whereas the jewish people of Nazi Germany were europeans…”don’t let them fool you or even try to school you.”

    14. Mr Siegal is Jewish
      More than 6 Million Jewish people were murdered by Nazi Germany,Jewish people suffered through Slavery inEgypt .
      Given this legacy one would expect fairness and open mindeness by Mr. Siegal

    15. Segal reversed himself partially because his money is from time shares resorts and we (minorities) are a good percentage of his clients. The name of this CEO should be released and let the population decide if his business is worth continuing to use.
