By Luther Turmelle, North Bureau Chief

NEW HAVEN — Propark America, which operates 31 parking garages and lots in New Haven, has notified the Connecticut Labor Department that it is laying off 186 workers at its facilities in the city, but a company spokesman says it has no plans to eliminate any jobs.

The Hartford-based company filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) notice Nov. 20 with the Connecticut Department of Labor. The notice says the layoffs are scheduled to begin on Jan. 20.

    This is going to become a new national occupation – The Daily Lay Off notices.

    Like reading the obituaries. “Oh, that was a good company. I didn’t know they were trouble.” “Yeah, I could of told you that company was unhealth and ready to fold.”

    Those with jobs will feel the thrill of getting through one more day being employed. Those with out a job will feel empathy with their fellow Americans now having to rebuild their lives as best as they can.

    This is just the Opening Act.
    Just wait until the New Year when huge new taxes and Obamascare kick in.

    I bet just thinking about it gives president Jarrett a boner.

    But remember, none of this has anything to do with Obama or Demonrats in Congress. It’s all the result of callous corporate greed and if you don’t believe me just ask the brain trusts at NY Times and MSNBC.

    I suspect that by Summer 2013, we’ll hear the mouthpiece media claiming this is all the result of corporations and greedy CEOs “putting profits before people”. There will NEVER be a moment of reckoning for the people who purposefully created this disaster and the victims will shoulder all the blame. Expect Republicans to agree to be the villains once again in a futile attempt to appease voters who don’t like them and won’t support them.

    Ditto’s Diann, By Design. This will prompt Obama to have a larger stimulous package to “create” jobs which will require more tax increases for the increased spending which will cause more layoffs which will prompt an even greater need for an even lager stimulous package and even larger tax increases which will cause even larger layoffs…..

    So happy that DH and I are retired. Those who voted for Obummer and who will lose their job, will have plenty of time to contemplate the consequences of their vote.

    I promise – anyone who whines about this is going to get a fat lip.

    Ok, maybe not, but I’m asking them who they voted for and if they say “Obama”, my only response will be: “Then it’s your problem”.
