    Yo know why... because the great and powerful Obama doesn't want pink slips going out days before the election...and that's the bottom line. It's totally illegal too, and I'm pretty sure he won't be able to get away with it.

  • Read the law
    Sam B
    The WARN Act clearly says that notifications are required 60 days or more before a layoff or plant closure. Not a potential layoff. An *actual* layoff. An employer does not have to notify employees if there's a chance that they may be laid off. It also only affects a "mass" layoff, which is defined as 30 or more days of layoffs for 33% or more full-time employees or 500 or more full-time employees. What is the exact number of FTE layoffs at each company? No one knows because it's not final. If 499 FTEs are being laid off and that accounts for 30% of the company's FTE count, the WARN Act wouldn't apply.

  • How this will impact my vote

    If I get a pink slip, I promise the incumbent will NOT get my vote. On the other hand, if I don't get a pink slip, I promise I'll cast my vote for the challenger.
