ORLANDO, Fla. (CBS12) - The president of a Central Florida company sent a letter to employees threatening layoffs based on who wins the presidential election, according to WESH in Orlando.

Geroge Daniels, president of Daniels Manufacturing Company (DMC), told employees they may lose their jobs if President Trump doesn't win re-election.

"If Trump and the Republicans win, DMC will hopefully be able to continue operating, more or less as it has been operating lately," the letter reads. "However, if Biden and the Democrats win, DMC could be forced to begin permanent layoffs beginning in late 2020 and/or early 2021."

"Democrats historically always cut military funding, thus reducing military orders," the letter continued. "Secret voting is one of our citizens' most precious rights. If you are legally qualified to vote, I urge you to VOTE in this election," the letter ended.

DMC makes tools and electronics for the aerospace, military, and aircraft industries.

"I have been doing this for years. I have an obligation to let workers know what could happen, based on the outcome of an election. They certainly should vote for the candidate they want," Daniels told WESH.
