Las Vegas Business Owner Fires 22 'Mostly Hispanic' Employees Over Obama Win

Source: Crooksandliars.com

A business owner in Las Vegas on Wednesday told a CBS radio station that he had fired 22 of his 114 "mostly Hispanic" employees because President Barack Obama had won re-election.

"I've done my share of educating my employees," business owner "David," who refused to use his real name on air, told KSNT radio host Kevin Wall. "I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system that we have. I believe in everybody having their right to choose who they want to be president."

"And I explained that I always put them first and, unfortunately, I'm at a point now -- and am being forced to -- that I have to worry about me and my family now," he continued. "I explained to them a month ago, if Obama gets in office, the regulations for Obamacare are going to hurt our business, and I am going to have to make provision to make sure that I have enough money to cover payroll taxes, the additional health care I'm going to have to do. And I explained that to them, and I said, 'You do what you feel you need to do, but I'm just letting you know this as a warning that this is things I have to think of as a business owner.'"

David noted that he had "mostly Hispanic" employees and some had come to work wearing Obama shirts on election day. "I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way," he explained. "Elections do have consequences, but so do choices."

"I don't need the labor force coming down saying I laid people off because they are Hispanic, I don't need the headache. We are in a right-to-work state, but I did inform people that I would possibly had to be making layoffs. I did make the notification 30 days ago. I followed the laws."

afraid to put on their car Obama or anything else they please. Many go about with far more radical crap on the bumper than Obama. This fear you speak of must be only among those with pre-existing cowardice. I know plenty of people of all races in LA who freely express liberal views.
And no person is to be called 'an illegal'. So stop doing that, ok?

I imagine that's because, as racism still exists, reactions to racism also still exists.

"This fear you speak of must be only among those with pre-existing cowardice..."
Let's not conflate 'fear' and 'concern' as they are two wholly separate concepts. Acting in a prudent manner is not the same as acting out of fear-- I hear that in the gungeon rather often.

"And no person is to be called 'an illegal'..."
I call every speeder I see on the highway 'an illegal', because by definition, they are.

His "reasoning" was straight out of Fox News misinformation. I think it is past time that the FCC take a look at Fox's broadcast license -- obviously cable is unregulated, but not the network stations. That is, unless FCC regulations have been gutted.

Somehow I think this "David" person is not a real person as no businessman could be this stupid and stay in business.

It doesn't necessarily mean that you can just hire and fire without cause. It has to do with union membership.

Yes, you're denying the government more money - but you're denying yourself more money by taking that action than the government would ever want from you.

This is why Republicans should never have any say on budgets. They fail at math.

42. 22 out of 114 employees is a significant number

People don't hire 114 people because they have excess cash that needs spending on human resources. So if you fire 22 of them, good luck being able to service your customers. He's going to be hurt pretty badly in revenue and may have to quickly rehire those people (since it might take time to train new hires). But then, if they were fired out of spite, I can imagine these re-hires to consider going to EEOC or the like to sue for wrongful termination.

Either way, if this is anywhere true, he's going to be in hot water.

53. Coming soon...Papa Johns dick-weasel announces his 11 cent per pizza increase

or whatever he said it would be.

Unless he actually puts a flier in each pizza box proclaiming that "this pizza cost you x cents more because of Obama" would anyone even notice the cost difference?

56. I heard this call

The hate radio jock ran with it for the last half of his show as evidence of how the economy was going to collapse. Of course no one ever questioned why this guy has a "mostly hispanic" workforce to begin with. My guess is he doesn't want to pay a decent wage to begin with.

58. THIS IS A LIE!

Why wait?
Hasnt the financial burden been known for a while?
Why wouldnt he fire the people when he found out?
Or wait until 2014 when the insurance mandates go into effect?
Because it isn't true, just some basement dweller making a name for themselves.
We will find out who did it.
The scumbags cant help but gloat about getting the radio and making alot of
people uptight about this story.
He wont be able to keep his mouth shut and will be found out.
Just give it some time, he will gloat to the wrong person.

62. Wow ...


"I've done my share of educating my employees," business owner "David," who refused to use his real name on air, told KSNT radio host Kevin Wall. "I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system that we have. I believe in everybody having their right to choose who they want to be president."


"I just believe I can fire them if the exercise their 'David' given right to choose who they want to be president."

he had fired 22 of his 114 "mostly Hispanic" employees because ... if Obama gets in office, the regulations for Obamacare are going to hurt our business ...


Uhmm ... dude, ObamaCare still applies to your car-wash/fast food franchise/lawn care business.

Finally, the rest of his work force should immediately seek other employment because if this jerk is making business decision based on political ideology ... he won't be in business much longer.

64. Total Bull Shit

Let's see if I have this straight. You have employees that work and make far more for the company than they do for themselves. Soooooooooo, you get rid of part of your income to save money for the future?

These people are so fucking dumb!

65. This is happening at a lot of locations

I spoke with a friend who had applied for a job in Las Vegas, He was told Wednesday that the job offer was rescinded. My buddy stated he strongly believes it was due to Obama being re-elected (and the asshole employer attitude tipped him off)

This should be illegal....

69. Yeah. Sure. Let's go with that.

If he made the proper notifications 30 days in advance, then he was going to downsize anyway.

70. he holds others to higher standards than he holds himself.

"business owner "David," who refused to use his real name on air..." . "Elections do have consequences, but so do choices."


Odd that-- he's afraid of the consequences of his own choice while holding others to the percieved consequences of theirs. From where I stand, that alone illustrates he holds others to higher standards than he holds himself.

75. If I lived there I'd

get my Union to organize his workers. So he knows I guess, that they can probably draw unemployment? How did this make anything any better? Assuming it's true of course...

81. I call BS. These aren't the type of people who keep employees on staff at a loss in the first place.

These are not the type to keep on people they don't need if it is cutting into their bottom line. If they need them, they keep them because they make them money. If not, they let them go.

He is lying. He probably doesn't even have a business.

I think you guys are right, though: this is some teabag agitator who doesn't own a business.
