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 CainIs there something in the cheese?
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.
Pocket Ninja: I basically think of people who voluntarily eat Papa John's, Pizza Hut, or Domino's pizza as aliens, anyway.
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.
Welcome to Obama's America!

Your Average Witty Fark User: Peter von Nostrand: Their pizza sucks and the owner is a world class douchebag. So pretty much nothing new hereYou're right, he's a world class douchebag:Except you apparently didn't know this
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...
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.
NeoCortex42: Pocket Ninja: I basically think of people who voluntarily eat Papa John's, Pizza Hut, or Domino's pizza as aliens, anyway.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.
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.
