moothemagiccow: I don't know how Papa John's justifies their current pricing.

F*ck you, that's how.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Well in my neck of the woods if you want pizza delivered you get Dominoes, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns or Marios.

Papa John could double their price and they'd still get my business.

Sorry to hear about your taste buds. What kind of accident was it?

Ohhh so many drunken Ian's memories (well, I didn't remember that well) in Madison. Steak and Fries Pizza is magically delicious after 2am.

Tommy Moo: DaCaptain19: It would seem to me that the underlying point of this entire article is that the ACA might/will produce the following results:

1. Employers will higher more workers, but all new hires as well as current employees will....
2. See their hours cut to the point where they are not eligible for health benefits, which will...
3. Also affect OTHER benefits which said employees will no longer be eligible, e.g. 401k.

So in the end you have more people working, but for a significantly poorer compensation package which excludes company-paid health benefits and any other benefits available to FT employees.

You don't think companies will increase the cost to the consumer AND cut their own costs (via above)? Think again.

/just speculating on a hypothesis.

One of the solutions I've been calling for to fix the unemployment mess is a 30 hour work week.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I remember reading that the Obama administration is out ahead of that strategy. They announced some enforcement edict that lowers the definition of "full time" to 35 hours to prevent businesses from benefits chicanery.

Where I work anything over 35 is OT... so noone that is PT ever gets more than 35 hours a week

I have two excellent local pizza joints within a block and a half of my house. I walk to get my pizza.

The_EliteOne: moothemagiccow: Altman: I'm from the NYC area, and of the three major chains (not familiar with Mario's), Pizza Hut tastes the most like "real" pizza.

You're from New York and you eat at Pizza Hut? I'm going to hook you up with a gun and a suicide note

sometimes they're the only ones open at 2 am when a munchie strike hits.

so much for your "city that never sleeps" horseshiat

Arkanaut: Altman: Papa John's sauce is wayy to sweet, their cheese isnt salty enough, and their crust is too thick and not chewy enough.

And what's the deal with that garlic butter stuff? Does anyone use it? Hell, they could probably afford health care for their employees if they just cut that out of their inventory.

Papa John's is a poor imitation of Greek's pizzeria (in Muncie, IN). The founder used to be a delivery driver for them. They do the whole sweet sauce/garlic butter thing much better. It's different than most pizza, but I do miss greek's every now and then.

Diogenes: Martin, a part owner of Ian's Pizza, a pizza shop with four locations in Wisconsin, said his business has offered full heath care coverage to its 50 full-time employees for years, making it all the more difficult to compete with national chains like Papa John's that pay workers low wages without health benefits.

Hey, buddy - if you support socialism you don't deserve to compete in this great capitalist system.

However, when your workers get sick they use the healthcare to get healthy again and not forced to come in coughing and sneezing all over the customers food. You think sickpay and health coverage would be a good thing, considering if you get customers sick, the fines can be much higher than any health coverage.

I'll stick with my Little Caesars hot-n-ready for 5 bucks. It tastes as good as most other pizza's and at that price it cant be beat.

Arkanaut: There's that competition thing we've all been hearing about.

What are the odds that the pizza at Ian's tastes better too?

2012-11-19 04:56:34 PM

Odds it's better than Papa John's? Probably pretty good.
May have to try a slice next time I'm back there.

cici's pizza looks better
