Glockenspiel Hero: Is there a reason pizza chain CEOs are such colossal douchebags? I understand that most CEOs don't align with the (D)s, but seriously

-Papa John Nutter will cut the hours of his employees rather than raise the cost of a pizza by $0.14 because of OBAMAEVILSOCULISMS
-Tom Monaghan has poured millions into pro-life and anti-gay programs, and is busy building a law "school" devoted to christian dominionism.
-We all got to hear plenty from Herman Cain

Is there something in the cheese?


They all have delusions of rulership: first you get the pizza, then you get the power. Like a bunch of little Caesars.

ToxicMunkee: Adapt or die.

These companies can go ahead and shoot themselves in both feet and fall into a bear trap. Other companies will step in to take their place.


That's Obama's cunning strategy: patriotic conservative companies will protest his War on Capitalism and go out of business, while communist socialistic companies will thrive by serving the unfilled market. There has never been a bigger threat to free enterprise.

For a vision of America's future, we need only look to what socialized medicine has done to Canada. There is no Papa John's, and the citizenry is forced to subsist on a foul gruel of french fries, gravy, and cheese curds.

The closest delivery pizza place to our house is a Papa Johns, but the boyfriend and I won't eat there. Not because of this specifically, but because it's not very good. I'm from Chicago, he's from Manhattan - pizza is kind of our thing. There's a great little hole in the wall Italian place about 5 miles from where we live that makes a kick-ass pizza. It's more expensive than a Papa Johns pie, and further out of our way to get it, but I'd rather support a local business than give this douche any of our money.

Papa Johns is dildos. Tell a friend.

Please note - when Hugo Chavez ran his country into the ground and the businesses started going bankrupt - it was the same as this thread - ignorant people and ignorant socialist politicians blamed the business owners for being selfish and holding out on the people with their hands out. You know - people like you who did nothing to earn the money they were taking from the businesses.

Socialism is a mental disorder.

Your Average Witty Fark User: Peter von Nostrand: Their pizza sucks and the owner is a world class douchebag. So pretty much nothing new here

You're right, he's a world class douchebag:

Except you apparently didn't know this


So he loves the police. That's normal for Republicans and in line with the accusation that he's a world class douchebag.

wee: ThatGuyFromTheInternet: I'm pretty sure they're people who have never even met an Italian.

Most Americans probably wouldn't call a Neapolitan pizza a pizza, they'd whine about NY pizza, or Chicago pizza or some other shiat...


That's the one with vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, right?

NeoCortex42: I don't get this decision by employers to reduce employee hours below "full-time" to avoid benefits like this. First there's the obvious PR issue, but then you have to figure how to deal with having a smaller workforce for the business. If you can do the same work with employees working fewer hours, why were that many employees hired in the first place? If they wind up hiring more part-time employees to make up the difference, doesn't the overhead involved in more payroll, training, and turnover rate negate any savings from avoiding ObamaCare?

Sounds like a shiatty CEO no matter how you look at it.


PJ's CEO isn't cutting any store workers' hours. He said some of his franchise owners may do so. Much of the derp about cutting hours is coming from franchisees - people who are so incapable of conceiving a sound business plan that they have to rent one from somebody smarter.

Call me crazy, but Domino's has been pretty decent since they changed their recipe. It's still not as good as a local pizzeria can be, but it's pretty good for a chain restaurant.


You're batshiat crazy.  NTTAWWT.

Go ahead and boycott Papa Johns. I'm sure their margins are just as thin as Dominos or the other chains, and depend on the competent few that put in full hours + overtime to make up for the show-up-to-work-if-they-feel-like-it members of the team. And when you have to order for three dozen people, I'm sure everyone will be willing to pay top dollar for your personal favorite Cygnoid Family Bros. pizza.

This guy's sin was having the gall to explain economic cause and effect and he's being crucified because he wants to stay in the black rather than taking a loss until Obama's magical pixie dust cures the nation.

I'm dreading the jobs reports in early 2013 - wait for the Sequestration shoe to drop next. The Democrats own the economy now - the It's Bush's Fault card has officially expired - and the really sad part is the damage can't be limited to be people who voted for it.

We've stopped buying their pizza after Papa John held a fundraiser for Romney.

John is a billionaire. It's much better that he squeeze every penny of profit than to offer health care to his employeesm.

log_jammin: including Applebee's which has said it won't hire new workers because of the law.

yeah that makes sense.

"Bob didn't show up for work and we need a fry cook. also tony is sick and out for a week plus our head waitress is 8 months pregnant and will be gone soon. should we hire more workers?"

"NO!!!!"

"but who's going to..."

"I SAID NO! OBAMACAREOBAMACAREOBAMACAREOBAMACAREOBAMACAREOBAMACARE!!!"


These are the stupidest publicity stunts ever.


Maybe they can convince Obama to refuse inauguration if they keep this up!

Or, if nothing else, he can be less black!
