PA business owner sends email to his employees - a threat?
He's not blatantly telling them they will become part time employees but he's suggesting it.
If President Barack Obama wins a second term, Heritage Hospitality could consider laying off some of its 600 workers and replacing some of its full-time staff with part-timers, its president and owner said.

1. Chances are Mister DeRose is considering doing this anyway no matter who wins
Because if it saves a company money, then a company will normally do it. Just they have someone else to blame if Obama wins.

4. I agree 100% on this.
Chances are that there would be little change in taxes and regulations as soon as Romney won, in the fat chance that this happened. I have seen this happen before, with threats of bringing a union in will mean closing the plant when they were already in the process of closing the plant. Then they just try to make a scapegoat out of whatever they are blaming originally.
This company will lay off employees and go to part timers if they are not making money. If business is doing very well, they will not jeopardize that just because Obama is re-elected. 99.9% of the time, these decisions are forced on businesses because the management sucks, not because of who is in the White House.
