Elections, they have consequences.
As Twitchy has reported, large companies are contemplating hiring freezes and cuts in workers’ hours. Small business owners, and employees, have reported massive reductions in hours necessitated by the business-crushing cost of mandatory insurance coverage for people working over 30 hours per week. Part-time is the new normal.
Small business owners on Twitter have talked about the heartbreak of having to lay off employees. Now, many are reporting that they will not be hiring new employees for the foreseeable future. The layoff bomb has resulted in a hiring freeze avalanche.
I am a small business owner- and no I am not hiring. Raise my taxes, I'll be firing. Don't like it? Start your own damn business.—

My business is "only" 18 employees else I'd be cutting hours. Certainly have no intention of growing. Hunkering down & thinking of selling—

Sad, indeed. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
This is #Forward? We can thank Obama for the destructive policies that are crushing businesses and devastating lives.
