What part of the game is that?!?
David Siegel Says He May Fire Westgate Resort Employees If Obama Is Re-elected
A flashy Florida billionaire dubbed the “King of Versailles” says he’s willing to step away from his kingdom – a massive timeshare company – if Obama is re-elected, and warned his employees they should fear for their jobs if the president wins in November.
In an email sent to all 7,000 of his employees at Westgate Resorts, David Siegel suggested his staff may want to think twice about voting for Obama if they want to keep their jobs.
“In spite of all of the challenges we have faced, the good news is this: The economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration,” he wrote in the email, which was leaked by his staff and quickly went viral.
“Of course, as your employer, I can’t tell you whom to vote for, and I certainly wouldn’t interfere with your right to vote for whomever you choose,” he continued. “In fact, I encourage you to vote for whomever you think will serve your interests the best. However, let me share a few facts that might help you decide what is in your best interest.”
The balls on this sum-b!tch…
The email goes on to make the argument that if Obama is re-elected and raises taxes on the wealthy, Siegel will be forced to cut jobs and will have no motivation to continue to work, which would mean his staff could find themselves unemployed.
“So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, which candidate understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn’t?” he wrote. “Whose policies will endanger your job?
So you’re just gonna piss on your employees and tell them it’s rain huh? SMH
Siegel defended the email in a phone call to the Daily News on Wednesday, saying he was just trying to “educate” his employees.
“I had the hindsight of having lived four years under the Obama administration, and I know what it’s done to my company,” he said. “I felt that I had a duty to inform my employees of what the possible results would be.”
Yeah, aight man…GTFOHWTBS
