#1 Well layoffs have been going on now for some time.
The horse has gotten out of the barn. Claw back?. Anything is possible with this administration.

#2 "Layoff Notices"! The firms are required by law to issue notices telling employees that, barring any changes, they will probably be cut. Kinda not helpful for Teh Won right before they vote. His regime is trying to circumvent the law AGAIN

#5 Some defense companies...have said they expect to send notices to their employees 60 days before sequestration takes effect to comply with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act...Companies appeared undeterred by a July 30 guidance from the Labor Department, which said issuing such notices would be inappropriate... Office of Management and Budget went a step further in guidance... the company could treat employee compensation costs for WARN Act liability, attorneys' fees and other litigation costs as allowable costs to be covered by the contracting agency--so long as the contractor has followed Labor Department's guidance. The legal fees would be covered regardless of the outcome of the litigation...
Aside from the suits-and-ties, the Friday afternoon news releases, and no visible corpses, how is this different from the promise to compensate a dead jihadi's* family?

#6 Law, who needs no stinking law. 'Rule by man over law' is the motto of this regime.

#7 Every defense contractor should send a letter to the Whitehouse announcing that Obama will be laid off in January 2013

#8 so the jobs will be cut - but the people won't be told ahead of time. all so the election will be a "pretty event". otherwise all these notices would have been mailed out before the Nov voting date.

#9 The people who are at risk know it, formal notification or not. After all, plans will have had to have been made and shared for how to handle the shut down, whether temporary or permanent. All the non-mailing avoids is a document for the journalists to publicize. But keep an eye out for articles on the subject in local newspapers and television stations as the date approaches, because they will be there, even if the national media ignore as hard as they can.
