Papa John Can Afford to Give 2 Million Pizzas, but not Employee Healthcare
"Papa John" Schnatter says Obamacare is going to cost customers an extra 14 cents a pizza, and employees full-time hours (otherwise, he'd have to give them healthcare). Lots of people are lining up for a boycott. If there is a Papa John's Pizza where you live/work, will you continue to eat there?

I don't eat there to begin with. Such bad pizza. Support your local pizza shops, yo.
But this is totally old news.
I don't understand why anyone would boycott them. If you feel bad for the employees, is not giving them money really helpful? I heard hotels are going to stop advertising them as a result, and that's just stupid.
No factor to me, There isn't a place anywhere near me anyways. Still a shitty stance to take by a company trying to become a solid third option for Pizzas.

I hate to be That Guy, but businesses raise prices all the time anyways. Wouldn't it have been prudent to just do it and not talk about it?
It was taken from an interview he made with a college newspaper. It was just a side comment he was making about the re-election of Obama. He never even said it was going to happen, he just predicted that a lot of manager's are going to have to cut back their employee's hours to avoid having to pay extra money, or they will have to charge costumers slightly (like $0.14) more per pizza to make up the difference. Not even remotely a big deal. It's just common sense, if someone throws an expense at you, you need to make the money up somehow, or avoid the expense. That's called business, and he was explaining the consequences to everyone. The only reason this is making headlines is because it was the CEO who said it instead of Driver McDelivery Guy.
He actually said it months ago, just surprised this is suddenly news now ( I get it, Obama officially re-elected...etc).
I run 10 Domino's and I still think the news is just being shitty to the guy for no reason. Let me know when the Pizza Hut CEO says it. Nothing is surprising about the guy in last place in sales having to make more cost cuts. Has anyone tried our new pan pizzas by the way? THREAD HIJACKED
I actually thought that one of the best moves Domino's ever made was when they changed to that garlic crust stuff like 2 years ago (or whenever it was). I love that.
Little Caesars pizza > Papa John's.
End of story.
