    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.

    2-way street... dude acts as if anyone cares that he's not hiring.

    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.

    Is utter and complete economic ignorance required to be a leftist?

    When there is a cradle to grave safety hammock they can afford to be ignorant.

    The store I work at is adding 1-2 positions...so they can cut all part timers from 32 hours to 24. From the owner's mouth, because of Obama's reelection ensuring that his policies take effect.

    This will be the norm for hotels, restaurants, retail stores, etc.

    Let me tell you some about "the trades" Mr. educated.

    Most companies that do trade work are small sub-contractors with crews. The owners of those companies are/were 'tradesmen" themselves. They started at the botttom and worked up. They grew and hired people to expand their business and reinvested their profits in the business, equipment, crews, etc. If economic push comes to shove many of them can go back to doing the job themselves with just the labor they have to hire. They don't HAVE to run multiple crews pay huge taxes etc. In my business I actually took a pay cut when I started to expand until the expansion started to pay off, but in tough times I could always have gone back to being a "One man band" but I had a heck of a shop and the equipment that none of my employees had so they couldn't have competed with me they would have been SOL.

    In the future you may be hiring the owner of the company to do your concrete work himself, but he used to employ a lot more people.

    The truly sad part to the Obamafuture is that interest rates are at all time lows and it WAS a good opportunity to free up investment money for housing starts. In it's own way, right now is a great time for those with capital and good credit to get in to homes, in fact much better than during the "Sub-prime" market. Unfortunately the rest of the economic forecast is too gloomy due to Obama's "tax people into prosperity" thinking.

    You assume I'm in the concrete business because of my GT handle? No, I'm not. You even got the message of my post wrong, total fail.

    My handle is concretefuzzynuts because I have concrete fuzzy nuts. They are sitting in my nut bowl.:supergrin:

    My business is custom made, high end furniture made of exotic woods, art. The market is down for such. The EPA regulations are so strict on some of the chemical finishes I use, it makes it very costly to stay in business.

    How does a guy in your business have time to post 31 times per day, 7 days a week for months on end??? Just really curious.

    How does somebody, doing something useful, have the time to compile the statistics on someone elses postings?

    Maybe he's retired but has experience. :dunno:

    It doesn't make his post less factual.

    That's because you don't understand the slightest thing about running a business.
