“CEO will fire his employees if Obama is Re-elected”

October 11, 2012 by The ReadyWriter


David Siegel, this flashy Florida billionaire has warned his employees; “If Barack Obama is re-elected they should all fear for their jobs”.

In an email Siegel sent to all 7,000 of his employees at Westgate Resorts, David Siegel suggested his staff may want to think twice about voting for Barack Obama if they want to keep their jobs.

“In spite of all of the challenges we have faced, the good news is this: 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,” he wrote in the email, which was leaked by his staff and quickly went viral.

“Of course, as your employer, I can’t tell you whom to vote for, and I certainly wouldn’t interfere with your right to vote for whomever you choose,” he continued. “In fact, I encourage you to vote for whomever you think will serve your interests the best. However, let me share a few facts that might help you decide what is in your best interest.”

The email goes on to make the argument that if Obama is re-elected and raises taxes on the wealthy, the 77-year-old Siegel will be forced to cut jobs and will have no motivation to continue to work, which would mean his staff could find themselves unemployed.

“So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, which candidate understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn’t?” he wrote. “Whose policies will endanger your job?

In the meantime, Siegel’s dream mansion sits on 90,000-square-foot gated retreat in Windermere, Florida., it’s currently under construction for additional improvements. 

And although Siegel claims his email is not a threat or intimidation tactic to his employees, he had no idea it would fire off such the media storm that it has.

    Lawfully you cannot lay-off or fire workers without legitimate cause. Threatening employees would count as a professional red-flag, but at the same time, if the case does happen, then the employees of said company, can file a civil lawsuit of harassment and bullying….

    Don’t sell your soul to these guys. If you know in your heart you like Romney, vote for him. If you like Obama, vote for him. But don’t let people who will never suffer dictate to you what you do. If you allow them to put fear and doubt in your mind, you will continue to be owned by these people.
