Thread: Lockheed Martin is laying off 123,000 workers just weeks before Christmas.

  1. #1

    Default Lockheed Martin is laying off 123,000 workers just weeks before Christmas.

    I got this in my E-mail today. Seems like we are do to pay out millions to hush this up till after the election.

    At White House Request, Lockheed Martin Drops Plan to Issue Layoff Notices



    Defense contractor Lockheed Martin heeded a request from the White House today one with political overtones and announced it will not issue layoff notices to thousands of employees just days before the November presidential election.


    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics...ayoff-notices/



    The President is trying to hold off any announcement until after the election.
    This will make a significant increase to the questionable 7.8 % Unemployment
    number.


    Lockheed is going to lay off 123,000 defense workers due to Obama's downsizing
    of the military. This hit the Drudge report yesterday. This is true!

    The law requires Lockheed to give 60-day notice to all to-be-fired employees
    within 60 days. That drop dead date would be November 1st. Since this would be
    devastating for his reelection, Obama has promised that our government would
    cover all Lockheed severance packages to fired employees if Lockheed would not
    release the names and locations of those losing their jobs until after the
    election!
    Do you have any idea how many millions that will cost the taxpayer?
    Thank you Obama!!

    With their infernal racial set-asides, racial quotas, and race norming, liberals share many of the Klan's premises. The Klan sees the world in terms of race and ethnicity. So do liberals! Indeed, liberals and white supremacists are the only people left in America who are neurotically obsessed with race. Conservatives champion a color-blind society. -- Ann Coulter

    No problem, we'll just print millions of more money to pay for the coverup.

    Since the outcome of the sequestration process isn't "reasonably foreseeable," Lockheed and other defense contractors aren't obliged to send notices to anybody. And since Lockheed made it clear that more than 90 percent of the employees receiving those notices would not be laid off, even under its own hypothetical and hyper-hysterical scenario, the unlucky 1 in 10 won't even know who they are

    It's not a guarantee they will...it all depends on how the sequestration process between LM and Congress goes...

    Most corrupt Administration ever. And, of course, the mainstream media will not cover this story.
    "The progressive is a self-appointed social redeemer, leading a movement to destroy his own society and liberate the masses. This political mission provides him with immense moral indignation and, therefore, moral superiority, dispositions from which, in turn, he derives tremendous emotional gratification. His whole belief system provides him with a sense of belonging, since he has joined other social redeemers, as well as victims, real or imagined, who wait for him to break their chains."

    If the emperor is naked, and despite fear of insults, we are duty bound to state the obvious.

    Never said they weren't...just stating that those jobs are not a guaranteed loss right now. Hopefully Congress will do the right thing...

    You're right. We should continue paying them even if they aren't needed. Defense contractors deserve their socialized welfare spending, right?
