Doesn't seem like a good strategy to take as a business owner.

Just thinking out loud here.
In this guy's case it certainly sounds like what's going on.

I didn't know you can just get laid off like that over there. Don't you have unions and workers rights?

I was seriously disappointed when I read this article and it wasn't in fact about a baby that had somehow inherited a company, and then been used as a puppet to fire it's workers.

We have unions, but they're not always effective and not everyone is in one. Considering this Murray's political views, his mines are probably non-union. We have workers' right as well, but they're not particularly effective at preventing the big guy from screwing over the little guy.

Doesn't suprise me at all...I was told before the election by several oil and gas drilling companies that they were on a hiring freeze till after the election. Thats the case for a lot of buisness's around my area of all kinds. People aren't wanting to take any chances with Obama back in office and are cutting back or simply not expanding.
