Waco businessman Bill Looman, owner of U.S. Cranes, LLC, has made a new company policy: A hiring freeze has been established until Barack Obama is no longer the President of the Unitted States. In the 11Alive news story by Jon Shirek, the former US Marine makes it clear that it’s not a political decision, but a business decision caused by the policies of the Obama Administration.
About six months ago, Looman put signs on his company vehicles that read, “New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone.” A picture of one of those signs from his Facebook page went viral earlier this week. Now, with the 11Alive report and a headline on the Drudge Report, Looman is suddenly receiving a lot of attention. Shirek reports that Looman has unplugged his phone due to the amount and timing of the phone calls.
I know some people won’t like it, but it’s Mr. Looman’s business and his opinion places the continued economic disaster with the policies of the current administration. There is much evidence to suggest that he is either right or, at the very least, not entirely wrong.
The reactions have been mixed. As for me, I sent him a Facebook friend request.
