Letter From The Boss.....
 
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is our President, and that our taxes, and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%.

Since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me, since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go.

So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lot and found six Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem.

They voted for change; I gave it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

Awesome! That would be great to see that as an actual news story though is it discrimination to fire people based on political beliefs?

Not to offend anyone! Isn't that what some Unions do? Maybe I heard wrong:confused:

Actually its probably legal. You might make the news and get some really bad press but you could be legally in the clear.
