Hmmm, how many Papa John's pizza makers and drivers are full time and have health insurance now? Likely very few. So, Portcitygirl's and your implied hope for employee sabateurs is not likely to come to fruition.

Yes, but most other leaders/industries have found ways to do it without causing "PR issues".

This hasn't even been implemented yet.

I wouldn't call it a tax break, but corporations will drop what coverage they did offer, or cut hours to not have to fork over health care for low skill labor. This was the entire point of the law in my opinion. More and more companies want to quit paying for health care, and this gave them an out.

So now more and more people will be "covered" by crappy government plans.

This will bring low skill labor in America more in line with the rest of the low skill labor in the world.

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


Can't disagree with this.

You miss the point. Obamacare is being implemented in one of the worst U6 environments in recent history. Severely limits employee alternatives. The U6 situation and its concomitantly expanded underemployed worker pool also makes it obligatory for CEOs to consider the 34hr employment option from a fiduciary stance.

(1) Our Corporations already have the highest tax burden in the world; and
(2) This was the intent of Reid/Pelosi/Obama...this will lead to the single payer system by default. It was the somewhat clever way to get the legislation passed in a way that will ultimately lead to a single payer outcome.
(3) Businesses are not charities...they are not "obligated" to do jack shite unless explicitly required by law.

Walmart did this years ago to thousands of employees. Cut hours to 36 and took away benifits.

I hope more companies come out and do the same.


Likewise, then hopefully it will force the conversation of why in the hell employers are responsible for paying for health insurance in the first place and put health care in the hands of government where it belongs.

That is all fine and dandy in free market, but when the government starts telling businesses what they have to do is when you get in this situation. It all boils down to the government over reaching their bounds.

Raise the price of your pizzas, Papa John, that's the whole fricking point.

The man simply doesn't care about his employees; only about making a political statement.

What a myopic and ignorant statement!

You actually have no idea what this man cares or does not care about and you are simply wrong about everything else you said.

Pass the cost along to your customers.

Employers are better able to cost spread than the average consumer of healthcare

Other pizza companies cutting hours and saving money will sell cheaper pizza. Broke Americans want cheap stuff.

The goal was to go to single payer. Everyone on government Heathcare. No private insurance companies. This was just the first step.

Tens of millions of people on ObamaCare will be the "success" story. Huge doctor shortage coming. Will be replaced by seeing non-doctors or bringing in doctors from other countries.

Obama said after the auto bailout the U. S. Government needs to take over more industries. Healthcare is 1/6th te economy. What's next?

Manufacture a crisis in the media.

Oppose any fixes to save a system orbsolve problems in favor of total replacement.

Buy off largest business opponents.

Buy off largest lobbying groups. (AARP).

Fundamental transformation complete!

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.


Liberal solution---Get rid of public trades.

Taxpayers pay for it no matter what.

The only difference is having Obama and the IRS involved in your health care decisions.

I'm curious. Why do you believe health care should be handled by the government?
