  • To me it's disgusting. Voting decisions are - and should remain - highly personal. No one should feel like they're being pressured in one direction or another by someone in a higher position.

  • Obama is all for job regulation.

    So, while I hate to mince words, they're not extorting or threatening their employees, they're informing them. When you add regulations and taxes, such as the Affordable Healthcare Act, you kill jobs. These companies will downsize or go elsewhere if things get worse. The people, they're stuck here. They should be informed of how the candidates stand on business.

    • Precisely; the employees have a right to know what policies the candidates have and how these will effect their livelihoods - effectively it's nothing worse than a "How to vote" card they distribute here when you go to the polls which provides you instructions on how to ensure your vote is the one for your preferred candidate and the preferences you select are directed towards them also (as we use the preferential system here). Typical No-bama scare tactics; we've got clowns like that here too

    • taxes are not the reason for downsizing...companies will downsize eventually even if there was 100% tax or 0% tax. All companies look for increasing efficiency and one of those ways is using technology that replaces workers. Second of all CEO's are ALWAYS forced to reduce costs as much as possible, one of the queickest ways is to reduce the labor force or go to another place where the labor market is cheaper.

    • Also how can you explain Norway and Japan having very low unemploymen rates? I mean why is their unemployment not as high and why they enjoy higher rates of HDI compared to the US? All of what you say is pure conservative propaganda spoken by selfish rich old guys who just want to get richer.

  • It is bs, no body should tell you who to vote for. In a free society, you have your say of who you vote for. CEO's or Unions alike.

  • Forgive me for not reading through, but how exactly do these companies confirm that their employees voted for their candidate?

    • Unions who do it are just as bad. But I've yet to find any news (recent news) on Unions bullying their members to vote a specific candidate.

      If they do, it's just as illegal and should be just as much attacked and punish them for it.

    • Why would 4 more years of Obama lead to job loss though? Everything he's done so far has been pretty much in the favor of corporations. Short of him going in and demanding they hire people (which would be socialism) he can't do much more (record low in taxes, yes, the effective tax rate of corporations is only about 9% on average after all the tax breaks, subsidies and loop holes). I mean, you do realize how much money the corporations are sitting on, right? They are choosing not to hire much.

    • The big corporations might control Obama and Congress but they are not the largest employers.

  • It's not illegal, apparently.

    • I have doubts on that. I foresee possible lawsuits in the future, but we'll see.

    • Well, check the last one for a good example. Coal industry owner forces employees to a Mitt Romney rally to boost the numbers, forces them to go during a weekday WITHOUT PAY (or they'd be fired), and he had already cut most of their pay only a month or so before and yet some how affords this big extravaganza for Mitt Romney.

      Ya...

    • I'd classify that as terrible.

  • The rise of the American Oligarchy...
