    • Dana Holding Corp.

      As recently as a week ago, a global auto parts manufacturing company in Ohio known as Dana Holding Corp., warned their employees of potential layoffs, citing "$24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses". After laying off several white collar staffers, company insiders have hinted at more to come. The company will have to cover the additional $24 million cost somehow, which will likely equate to numerous cuts in their current workforce of 25,500 worldwide.

      Stryker

      One of the biggest medical device manufacturers in the world, Stryker will close their facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs in December. Worse, they plan on countering the medical device tax in Obamacare by slashing 5% of their global workforce - an estimated 1,170 positions.

      Boston Scientific

      In October of 2009, Boston Scientific CEO Ray Elliott, warned that proposed taxes in the health care reform bill could "lead to significant job losses" for his company. Nearly two years later, Elliott announced that the company would be cutting anywhere between 1,200 and 1,400 jobs, while simultaneously shifting investments and workers overseas - to China.

      Medtronic

      In March of 2010, medical device maker Medtronic warned that Obamacare taxes could result in a reduction of precisely 1,000 jobs. That plan became reality when the company cut 500 positions over the summer, with another 500 set for the end of 2013.

      Others

      A short list of other companies facing future layoffs at the hands of Obamacare:

      Smith & Nephew - 770 layoffs
      Abbott Labs - 700 layoffs
      Covidien - 595 layoffs
      Kinetic Concepts - 427 layoffs
      St. Jude Medical - 300 layoffs
      Hill Rom - 200 layoffs

      A lot of other businesses are going to reduce the number of employees they have or reduce the average work week in order to avoid the Obamacare insurance coverage mandate that will soon be implemented.

    • Obama was "fired up" and so were the voters, and so now, the mass firings have begun. Here's a collection of headlines since the election. Please say a prayer for the families who will be suffering. Had Romney won, many of these companies would now be hiring. (This is the SHORT list)

    • Gamesa announces new round of layoffs
      David Hurst

      EBENSBURG — Gamesa Energy has issued layoff notices to more than half of its Cambria Township work force.

      Company officials say 92 of the plant’s 154 workers are expected to be out of work at the plant by early next year.

      It’s part of a nationwide trend for wind energy companies. A congressional deadlock over whether to extend a soon-to-expire federal production tax credit has drastically weakened the market for new wind farms and components.

      “Failure to extend the (tax credit), which expires at the end of the year, has caused a dramatic slowdown across the entire U.S. wind industry,” said David Rosenberg, Gamesa’s marketing vice president.
