When terminations are subject to the WARN Act, it is not uncommon for the large companies to escort employees to the door at the time of the notification (usually with some time to pack up personal effects) while keeping them on the payroll for 9 weeks to meet the notification requirement, with the severance kicking in after that.

I agree, 'if" it meets that requirement. Usually, you're talking about a plant or large facility. The problem with today's remote opportunities, you can have a facility with a few as 20 people that flies under the radar but overall becomes part of a bigger picture layoff over time instead of saying a company is laying off 3,000 people and 1,5000 are expected to come from facility xxx.

Read this article about Chavez's race and devisive socialist policies in Venezuela....the two of these men...Chavez and Obama could be twins.

news.yahoo.com




And this is just sickening.

Besides tweeking numbers, today, "Columbus Day," there was an article on Yahoo about how Obama acknowledges the day, or rather how a member of the media thinks that it should be acknowledged by running that story today. The headlines said something to the effect of "Obama celebrates Chavez." Of course, out of curiousity I checked it out, and he chose today of all days, "Columbus Day," to dedicate the home of Cesar Chavez in Bakersfield, CA, as something....a national monument?.....(which is the farming area of CA in central CA).

In all honesty, I would say that most Californians, who are actually USA citizens, don't even know who Cesar Chavez was, unless they are from a farming background in CA. That is an extreme special interest issue, and run by Yahoo to dig it in that all of these immigrants here in CA, have no idea who Christopher Columbus was.

There is even a Cesar Chavez day in CA! When I worked for the State of CA, we had the "holiday," off, and especially the younger generation, didn't even know who he was! Who would argue a free day off?

Well, of course we were talking about two different Chavez's. I was talking about the socialist venezuelan president who just got re-elected and actually endorsed Obama and they are both a lot alike.. You are talking about how Obama is politicizing Cesar Chavez's death to get hispanic votes. By the way, my son did a book report on Cesar Chavez two years in a row....up here in PA. My son is half hispanic and he chose him for that reason and the name.

Don't know if this piece of news has been discussed already (can't keep up with all the posts), but I received this info from Romney-Ryan's Committee today.

"Friends,

For the first time in history, a political campaign will hit the billion-dollar mark. After raising $181 million in September, Barack Obama's re-election effort has raised nearly $950 million this cycle, with one month left until Election Day.

Liberals will not give up their power easily, so it's imperative that we all come together to stand up against them and elect Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and the entire Republican team. We need to elect Republicans up and down the ballot who will lead with solid conservative values and show America what a real recovery looks like.

President Obama and his allies will not hesitate to use Chicago-style politics to achieve their goals. We must not let them succeed -- we are not letting them succeed...."

I saw the headline again, and it did say, "Cesar Chavez." Your mention of the other Chavez (hence, the "sickening" comment), brought to mind the headline and the article that focuses on Cesar Chavez on Columbus Day.

It's just poor timing, and that is also sickening. That the current president of the USA would focus on a minor special interest figure

(even minor for the Spanish/Native American population) when we have a

now "banking holiday," only focus on a major historical figure, Christopher Columbus. As if the Spanish influence in the West can be summed up by farm laborers, and their organizers, who illegally acquired residency in the USA by sneaking under the fence into the USA.

You want to hear something funny...Obama and his crew were aware of Cesar Chavez in 2008 as they stole his slogan...."yes, we can". Yes, that was Cesar Chavez's famous saying...it is in all the books. They had t-shirts, etc. made of it. Isn't that sad. At any rate, we now know they can't....though Cesar Chavez did.

I'm really concerned as to what actions Obama might take now that the race is tightening up, and he may finally feel that he actually may lose. I would not rule out Obama taking any action to stop Romney's election.

And so, when I heard the September Jobs Report - my first thought was that Obama and his machine may be doing something sneaky to make him and his administration look better since jobs are the number 1 issue. I just heard from Lou Dobbs on Fox that this percentage is based on a household survey of 50,000 households which is a very small number, and that this is likely a statistical fluke. Romney suggested that it is also reflecting many people giving up and leaving the job market. Who knows?

But, really, I wouldn't rule out Obama and his campaign and administration doing ANYTHING to stay in power. I think we should be prepared for anything - particularly some manufactured crisis (and, no, I'm not a conspiracy theorist) in the remaining weeks and possibly days before the election! Any thoughts?

I know the comeback in the debates next week will be lethal. Obama will probably have a lot of memorable
one liners to subdue Romney, even though they probably will be more nonsense.

Remember when the Obama campaign brought up the fact that Romney had a dog in a cage on the top of his
car when he went on vacation. That is the most ludicrous personality triait to be brought up in a presidential campaign. But the
worst part is, these absurd points perk up animal lovers ears. Those animal lovers may not even be political or
truly know about the issues, but they know that one superficial issue about Romney.

And the Obama team even misrepresented the facts at first and said the dog was tied to the roof of the car. They did not
even say that the dog was in a cage. There are all kinds of subtle points getting passed around for a purpose. Not everyone
in this country who can vote is as interested or savy as those of us on CM who care and discuss the issues.

You are doing a good job of promoting dialog to us on CM and we are all learning, Patricia. Thank you.

Did you hear that they are making Cesar Chavez's farm or house a National Historic Site? Right in time for the elections.

You're welcome, Marianne, but I feel I'm learning much more from all of you than I am contributing. I do enjoy good intelligent discussion, though!
