So sayth the Drudge. Here’s the money quote:
The guidance said that if plant closings or mass layoffs occur under sequestration, then “employee compensation costs for [Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification] WARN act liability as determined by a court” would be paid for covered by the contracting federal agency.
If there were any words that would send corporate attorneys running for the hills, screaming in the night it’s those. Basically what it says (read Obongo reelection committee) that you don’t need send out layoff notices (as required BY LAW) and you don’t need to worry about getting sued because we’ll cover your back and eat the costs for you…trust us. Because, really, we er, don’t really want 1.2 million layoff notices going out five days before our Messiah is due to be re-coronated (yeah it’s misspelled, fuck off).
Friends I’ve talked to in the contracting world have told me that the notices are going out regardless because: a) Sequestration cannot be stopped nor can the 450 billion cuts already approved on top of that. It’s going to happen, period. Harry Reid will make sure it happens out of spite if he loses the Senate so he can try to blame Republicans the drooling, senile prick. b) Even with a Romney Administration and Republication Congress the soonest anything could get done would be the last week of January, if then, maybe, call me. c) If Obongo gets reelected (God save our souls) he’ll just screw them anyway and they know it because there won’t be anyone or anything to stop him. He hates free market companies and he despises the military, and in particular, defense contractors.
Yeah…winning…now pull the other finger asshole…
