If you are a business owner and are having to let people go because of the burden of Obamacare, a good place to start is the parking lot. A quick scan of bumper stickers should make that tough to decision a little easier.
Don’t forget to scan Facebook as well.
Another Utah business owner — evidently inspired by that political stand — has fired two employees for supporting President Obama. And it’s all completely legal.
First owner George Burnett charged liberals a dollar more than conservatives at his Vernal, Utah smoothie shop. Now, another Utah business owner —evidently inspired by that political stand —has fired two employees for supporting President Obama. And it’s all completely legal.
Burnett, the owner of I Love Drilling Juice & Smoothie Bar, started charging liberals a $1 more than conservatives for his smoothies. ‘They’re costing us money,’ he told The Salt Lake Tribune about his left-leaning customers. ‘So it only seems fair that I charge them a little bit more.’ His menu board above the register clearly states that liberals will pay $5.95 for a 16-ounce smoothie or juice, while conservatives pay $4.95.
Not surprisingly, the stunt found a lot of support in Republican-dominated Utah One of those supporters was Terry Lee, owner of Terry Lee Forensics, who wanted offset Obamacare costs by firing two workers who happened to support President Obama. Lee first explained himself In the comments section of The
Tribune’s story on Burnett. ‘Love it. We had to let two employees go to cover new Obongocare [sic] costs and increased taxes,’ Lee wrote. ‘Found two Obongo supporters and gave them the news yesterday. They wanted the idiot in the Whitehouse [sic], they reap the benefits.’ Later, Lee spoke to the Tribune.
‘They were Obama supporters. We just knew they were,’ Lee said. ‘I implied that sort of tongue and cheek [in the comments section] but there were other issues, too.
They were not top performers.’
