Major defense contractors , fearing huge defense cutbacks wanted to notify thousands of employees of pending layoffs. Under federal law, notices must be sent no less than 60 days before (just before election day) The problem is compounded by the fact that many of these workers are in the swing state of Virginia ( a state Obama wants) What will he ever do?

The Labor department had ordered contractors to ignore the notices. When the contractors balked, they were told that if they are sued & found to have violated the law, they will be reimbursed by the federal government . Presto chango problem resolved except of course for the workers who put their trust in Obama & get the short end of the stick after the election. This sounds like something the dastardly republicans would do.

Your tax dollars hard at work.

Did Mrs. Roxy go off her meds again and hit you in the head? You seem more confused and misinformed than usual.

Roxy actually providing a link would be a miracle.

ROxy, have you ever gone a day without lying? Seriously. This pathetic attempt to smear Obama is sad and clearly not working. Try it over at Free Republic. They'll believe anything!

Am I supposed to tear up for the defense contractors not having contracts because we are entering peace time? Especially workers putting their trust in a president has wished to out of areas of Afghanistan and Iraq basically defining his platform since 2008 primaries? Defense contracting's a huge business and industry with plenty of functions they can done in this country.

You forgot part of the story.

The White House told the contractors not to layoff employees because the automatic cuts on January 2 have not been determined yet. For all we know, these companies will be able to keep all their employees in the new year because the cuts come from waste and other programs. Saying you're going to fire employees because of hypothetical budget cuts to these companies is absurd.

The automatic cuts aren't even a guarantee. Negotiations and compromise in the house could prevent them from happening at all. You're going to layoff a substantial part of the workforce on the chance that maybe your budget is cut?

The fees part is a way of balancing out the uncertainty of the negotiations. If their budgets do get cut on January 2, Obama has promised to cover the fees.

Which is more desirable: telling the workforce they're fired with no obligation to hire them back if the money is there, or keeping more people employed when there's a good chance that there's no reason not to?

"In July, the Labor Department told contractors it would be "inappropriate" for employers to send such warnings because it is still speculative if and where the $110 billion in automatic spending cuts might occur. By law, about half the cuts would be in defense spending."
