This is the very real threat of giving power to business.
Living with the knowledge that your employer can and will tell you how to vote.
Living with the fear that if his political wishes aren’t satisified – you may well lose your job.
Living with the knowledge that your employer has access to your medical records.
Living with the knowledge that your employer can and will impose HIS/HER relegious and moral values on your health care coverage.
So go ahead Amercia.
Vote for politicians that want to turn America into a corporation and run it for profit – not for people.
All under the guise of ‘free enterprise’, ‘liberty’ and ‘freedom’.
‘Last week, billionaire CEO David Siegel, who runs a timeshare empire, threatened to fire employees if President Obama is reelected in November, saying in an email, “the economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration.”
‘MSNBC’s Chris Hayes reported today on another CEO — Arthur Allen of ASG Software Solutions — who said in an email to his employees that they’d only have themselves to blame if they lose their jobs if Obama wins’.
‘The email reads, in part’:
“As you know, together, we have been able to keep ASG an independent company while still growing our revenues and customers”.
“But I can tell you, if the US re-elects President Obama, our chances of staying independent are slim to none”.
“I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away, and with that all of our lives would change forever”.
“I believe that a new President and administration would give US citizens and the world the renewed confidence and optimism we all need to get the global economies started again, and give ASG a chance to stay independent”.
“If we fail as a nation to make the right choice on November 6th, and we lose our independence as a company, I don’t want to hear any complaints regarding the fallout that will most likely come”.
“I am asking you to give us one more chance to stay independent by voting in a new President and administration on November 6th”.
‘In These Times also reported today that a company owned by billionaire right-wing activists David and Charles Koch sent pro-Romney mailers to its employees. The mailer gives a veiled warning that, if Obama is reelected, “then many of our more than 50,000 U.S. employees and contractors may suffer the consequences, including higher gasoline prices, runaway inflation, and other ills.”
