Because since we don't work we don't have to worry about being laid off.

Get a job? Kinda like getting the GTPI crowd to move out of their Mom's basement...... It ain't gonna happen.

Monday morning, I have to fire 6 people. If they have an O sticker on their car... guess what's going to happen? After all, they were part of the problem.

C'mon, don't say that, your Mom wants to use the basement for storage. Now get up, get another pizza delivery job and move out.

No. It isn't. Companies were holding their breath hoping there was a chance that Obamacare and some of the mountain of fedregs would be repealed.

I cannot speak for all companies, but the small business owners and our company execs were doing this as well. They planned for the worst and hoped for the best. The worst is what we voted for...enjoy America!

There fixed it for you.

Well looks like I will stay here for the next four years (well go home for vacations) or until the obama’s change causes anarchy then I will come home to watch the liberals melt down.

I know that... and YOU know that... I wonder how many others know that? I'd bet quite few.

... as were my partners and I. We are going to hold fast - for now - but have already accepted it may simply be a matter of "when" and "how severe", not if.

We are currently shopping for insurance we can afford. Health insurance that is affordable is becoming a rare find.

Your correct there are a lot more. Companies like Boston Scientific make medical devices like pacemakers but with OBcare there will be big changes.

Because what the world needs is another concrete company.

I'm sure some entrepreneur is waiting in the wings to do what you won't.

Folks need to understand the natural progression of things here. If business owners and investors lay too many people off due to leftist government, the leftists will eventually seize your business to let the government run it. If you object, you'll be disposed of.

That's the ultimate plan anyway.

Depending upon the size of your business, I suspect you'll find it's cheaper if you cut the benefits and pay the penalty. Benefits used to be an item that employers used to keep good employees and recruit new ones. However now the gov't has made it such that you cannot afford to compete for quality people.

I don't. I can call 12 other concrete guys more than willing to take my business-- and probably businessmen enough to make it work.

You mean my education and highly marketable skills?
