What exactly is wrong with talking about it? Every day we hear liberals from ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN etc. etc. take a public stage and blast our beliefs. It shouldn't be taboo to speak harsh reality. Obamacare will cause problems for a lot of people, why let the media get away with painting it with fairy dust and unicorn juice like they did the green energy movement?

True statement, I think from a PR standpoint they are being quiet, guy's are making the tough call of reducing hours to protect themselves.

The problem is dumb asses who think Papa John equals ownership of all the pizza franchises.

Pass the cost along to your customers. Employers are better able to cost spread than the average consumer of healthcare. Raise the price of your pizzas, Papa John, that's the whole fricking point.


I read ( LINK Terrible article but has valid numbers) that Papa John's profit last year was $87 million. Health care costs if they insured everyone would be $5-8 million - a 5.7%-9.2% reduction in profits[unlike this article who states it is a meager increase in expenses...). As a publicly traded company, your stockholders would be furious if you allowed a 5.7-9.2% decrease in profit. If you allowed the decrease, many stockholders would bail out and sell their stock and de-value your company. I'm sorry but not publicly traded company is going to accept a decrease in profit if they have legal avenues to avoid it.

If you accept the higher cost of healthcare and pass the cost on to consumers, it will negatively affect profits. In order to account for the PROFIT loss, you have to raise pizza prices by about 68 cents for a medium and about 91 cents for a large (assuming the low end of profit loss). It's $1.1 and $1.47 if its a 9.2% profit reduction.

Businesses are built to generate profit for those that created them.

He states that many of the franchisees may do that but I have to ask how many pizza store employees work full-time with benefits anyway.


Amen. Most of the PJ drivers/employess I know are college/high school students working through school, or adults looking to supplement their income. If you're working full time at a PJ's, and PJ's is your only souce of income, you shouldn't have dropped out of high school or should have gotten something besides a liberal arts degree.

If it's a PR issue, I think some would suggest Papa John is the dumb arse for drawing attention to it.

What are your (ya'lls) thoughts about lowered employee investment in their job when their hours are cut? They will presumably pick up other work which could minimize their 'dependency' on the Papa John's gig...potentially lowering quality of service.

Perhaps, however he does have the balls and the right to state his opinion, much like all the people who blow Buffett every time he slides his zipper down.

Hey some from the left on here said it is a good thing because now people will work two jobs, thus lowering unemployment rates and making Obama look good.

Look at the end of this most people are refusing to acknowledge Odramcare negatively impacted some of the people it was intended to help. Gee who would have thought a bloated POS contorted by politcis to secure enough votes to cram through would in fact be a POS?

Well, Obama and the Senate undermined the purpose of reconciliation to get this steaming pile of shite passed, so i say it's even.

Or maybe he is putting out a public announcement for PJ employees to understand what is coming and to not be shocked at their hours being cut. He is also giving them the reason behind the cuts and time to look for gainful employment elsewhere if it is going to be an issue.

Enjoy paying for it in taxes then... so corporations will get the tax breaks and then they'll be able to have the tax payers cover health care because they out smart the system.



You do realize that EVERYONE said this would happen if this pile of shite passed, right? Now you are going to try to whine about business owners conducting smart business principles? Grow up.

Yeah but, having balls and stating your opinion isn't a part of making a profit. IMO, he was trying to further politicize the issue.

I don't know that this will be the case, b/c I'm not sure it will be in a businesses best interest to cut hours for the reasons I stated above. Who knows how it will turn out, but some act like the employers will cut hours and that will be the end of it. Some think only employers can 'pass along' costs. Employees will react, too.

To add to that. Obama and the Senate undermined the purpose of starting a business. Profit. He is forcing business to pay for their agenda. Don't be pissed because they are opting out of it.

Maybe, but I would think an inter-office memo would be a better way to communicate that message than through the mainstream media.

So you think the only reason was to make a political point, do you feel the same was about the Oracle of Omaha?

True they will attempt to gain employment elsewhere, what else can they do other than listen to some jack hole who says it is a greedy white man's fault.

There is a huge supply of barely-capable-of-civilized-thought teens willing to fill those positions. If you have ever worked in customer service you'll understand what I mean when I say that serving customers is more detremental to employee morale than anything the employer could do.

Why? It's a wake up call to all of you retards who voted in the guy who made this steaming pile possible. I say publicize the hell out of it. Scare the shite out of America, because it is the only way that this abortion for legislation is fully realized.

You wanted this A Want. You wanted exactly what is happening. Own it.

Why do you think a question about Buffett and his public opinions is so bad?

People even on here have made the white greedy prick equation, no reason to get sensitive about it, it is a fact.

You are the reason this legislation survives. You and others like you who would rather have someone other than yourself pay for your own health.

Next year you and the other liberals will be on here bitching about businesses cutting hours and firing employees to avoid the cost of AHA. You are doing it now. You will blame business owners for the unemployment rate, and not Obama's policies. But you damn well know, that your precious liberals are the ones to blame. But, like with Bush, you will find a new evil to escape the pains of personal accountability.

So again i say, for every job lost due to Obamacare, you shoulder a portion of the blame.
