CEO's looking out for selves first

In the latter stages of the presidential campaign it became nationally known that chief executive officers of several American companies whose services and products depend on the patronage of the public in order to continue operations, four of them specifically exemplified and publicly quoted, stated that their employees would suffer dire consequences if the president were re-elected.

One such CEO displays a photograph of an in-process mansion under construction, with an estimated cost already in the millions. The other three have wisely avoided such pictorial scrutiny lest their physical assets also become exposed, obviously to stem severe criticism for their remarks.

So how should the paying public react to such overt threats to their employees, to such intended domestic abuse that such corporations inflict on its own? An extended boycott should not be out of bounds.
