CEO Puts Company at Risk Over Election

Do you find it offensive that a boss tells their employees what to do with their personal lives?

ASG Software is a company suckling at the Taxpayer's you know what... Check out their website as they are part of the GSA. http://www.asg.com/Solutions/Federal.aspx

I guess, the CEO hasn't gotten enough business from this administration and it appears he wants to fire his employees if President Obama is re-elected. Arthur Allen Email: CEO Of ASG Software Solutions Asks Workers To Vote For Mitt Romney

I especially love this quote from his email to his employees.

"When we buy a company, we eliminate about 60 percent of the salaries of the employees of that company."

With a threat like this - yes I consider the entire email a threat - he is compromising the quality of service the company provides. If you are working for this guy, how does it make you feel that you will be compromised because of your vote? Do like having your arm twisted?

If you are doing business with this company, think about how rational it is to do business with this firm. He will take that really good employee contact or relationship you have built with his company and put it at risk. Do you like dealing with cranky employees? Do you even know if this employee will be there after the election?

He obviously has too much business on his hands if he can afford to indirectly tell his customers what to do? If you are putting YOUR business in this guy's hands. Is it legit to ask how slippery his hands are?

Will he treat YOU differently as a customer if you don't tow the Romney Line?

He is free to fire his people. But the market place is free to avoid goof-balls like this.

And YES - this is a blog post that becomes a blatant ad!!!  (Sorry to impose that free market stuff.)

Sounds like public union thuggery to me! Two wrongs don't make a right though. This is what happens when companies or organizations get addicted to government money.

Hey Mike, Remember the first day of high school and everyone was in the hallways and you could read everyones body language? You already knew who to hang out with and who you wouldn't get along with. Same senario when people go to jail. So my point is that that same feeling can be felt in the workplace and that CEO is creating that bad energy. Yes he might not know who votes for who, but people hear things in the office and that can affect anyone at work.

How does he know who you vote for? Besides, he is not alone. He runs a business. 55 percent of small business owners would not start company today, blame Obama -- http://washingtonexaminer.com/55-percent-of-small-business-owners-would-not-start-company-today-blame-obama/article/2509069#.UGMlxI1lQ18

If Romney was president he would kill small business with his larger billionaire friends. They would suck everyone dry and keep more money now since they get tax breaks. That means they can buy not one but two Ferraris at the dealership and can afford to fire people in the middle class.

Mike, Although it's true that "they don't bother asking their members - WHO THEY WORK FOR - what political direction they should take)?", it's also a fact that Most Union members are Democrats anyway, because they Know which Party has traditionally "had their Back", and which Party is always putting knives in their Back. If this jerk was to do the Fair thing, he would have offered to resign if Obama won, not threaten his employees with Job loss if the "Always lyin' Romney & Ryan Team" lost the election. I think You are being intentionally obtuse in saying that you don't understand why Joe thinks this is a story ! I think the need to expose this type of coercion is obvious.
