Silly Jesus: Not if they happen to have less than 50 employees...or chose to devalue their stock rather than raising the price etc.


And then, of course, the people can decide for themselves how much they value a company that provides healthcare for its employees over one that doesn't and lets its employees rely on the emergency room or Medicaid.

FuryOfFirestorm: Silly Jesus: You aren't the majority of people. If his product was sitting next to a similar product that was .50 cheaper, you and most people would buy the other product. Should he put up a sign saying that his shiat is more expensive because he's passing along the cost of healthcare to the consumer?

He should. It's good PR. I've always opened my wallet wider for businesses that give back to the community, help the environment and give a f*ck about their workers.

Most people don't shop based on feel good PR. They shop based first and foremost on price. If it were the other way around, the organic / free range / all natural / lullabies sung to the chickens at night / fully decomposable container / shipped on trucks using clean burning recyclable soy beans / give employees blow jobs and 12 weeks off aisle would be 100 feet long instead of 2.

It's a damn shame that the CEO of a company can make billions of dollars a year sitting in an office for a few hours a day, while his workers bust their asses for +40 hours a week and still not make enough to live off of (and I'm talking the basics necessities, not fleets of Escalades and lobster dinners every night, like the GOP thinks that the lower class is getting with food stamps).

Think that he's a horrible person, fine. But that's his choice. It's his money. He built the business...his employees are their voluntarily....he can do as he pleases with his success.

MithrandirBooga: Silly Jesus: Jim_Callahan: the company's founder and CEO, John Schnatter, who has said President Barack Obama's health care reform law will cause prices to jump by 11 to 14 cents per pizza, and has said employee hours may be scaled back.

Um... did he say something else? Because "hey, our running costs are about to go up by a fairly small amount, we're going to raise prices a small amount (10 cents a pizza is like 1% max) to maintain our target revenue" doesn't sound upset so much as it sounds like he's just basically a responsible business owner. At least in this quote, he's not claiming he's being "hurt" at all, just that prices will need to compensate for new costs.

Basically, there must be something I'm missing here, because that sounds reasonable enough to me. Companies adjust product unit price to balance new costs all the time.

BUT HE HAS A BIG HOUSE!!! AND HIS EMPLOYEES HAVE SMALL HOUSES!!!

No offense, but you're one of the dumbest farking idiots I've ever seen on fark.

Wait, sorry. Yeah on second thought, I totally meant to offend you.

jso2897: This makes me feel left out. I can never boycott any of these a-hole RW "businessmen" who shoot their mouths off publicly - because none of them ever seem to make or sell anything i would touch with a ten-foot pole to begin with.
Papa John's? Walrus smegma on cardboard.
Cick-fil-A? Salty, greasy, rancid hillbilly chow.
Walmart? The outer dungeon of Hell.
Fox News? Unlistenable.

It's kind of frustrating.


That's why you support those that are actually affected by their policies and, if you can, hire people away from them. Competition isn't just about who sells the most; it's also about who employs the best people and who is the most efficient with what they have. Papa John's just announced to their competitors that they can't be efficient. Doesn't matter that they blame it on Obama, because he is not a controllable entity. If you're more efficient, you can beat them in that department. Step 2 is to get their best people (who may or may not be disgruntled with their boss's politically-based business decisions). And then step 3 is to attract people who would eat Papa John's, but are also disgruntled with their politically-based business decisions.

serial_crusher: ok, but did you carry that mentality into your real jobs? Did you ever make the switch back to carelessness?
You might be unique in that you can switch back and forth between caring or not.
Or maybe you went through a big change when you first got out, and might not have such an easy time going back?


Those were real jobs. I didn't particularly give a shiat, but the folks I worked with definitely did and busted their asses because they had kids at home and couldn't afford to lose a single hour. For them, it was serious work and serious business.

And, frankly, a monkey could do my current white collar job after a month or two of training. It's simply a cakewalk. Being promoted, so far, seems to be a matter of not shiatting yourself while sitting at your desk or yelling racist things at the cleaning crew. I don't HAVE to give a crap, because zero craps are required.

It's true that I went through a change - I got lazier. These days there's absolutely no way I'd ever work in customer service again unless the only alternative was starving to death. And then I'd probably choose throwing myself in front of a bus.

But I'm a white, educated yuppie. So I get to sit at a desk and earn more in a week than any of these Papa John's workers will see in months of working harder than I'm willing to.

And yet these are the same people that biatch because the hospital tax for their county hospital keeps going up year after year and Medicare/Medicaid costs keep going up and up

Not shocking. At all

It's your parents who should be taking care of your needs, not some stranger that, by mutual contract, payed money for your labors. They brought you into world, they can take care of you.
No wait- the govermnent is suppose to take care of you- isn't that why you voted? i took care of you now where's mine?
Surely someone out there is responsible for your care, somebody. Any takers?

Hi. I make this product. Currently it costs me a $1.00 to make. I sell it for $1.25 so I am doing pretty well. But now the government wants me to provide X to each of my workers at a cost of .20 cents per product more in expense. So now it costs me $1.20 to make the product. So what are my choices? Well, I could just lower my profit margins to 5 cents per product. But that would affect my stock holders and my ability to reinvest in the company. Oh, and my profit margin is directly responsible for my ability to raise capital. Lower my margin and my interest rates go up. But, it is a choice. Or I could pass the cost onto the consumer, I'll start charging $1.45. Hmm, but that might lower sales and make me less competitive. Or I could lower the salaries and benefits of my employees. Hmm, but that might make it less attractive to work for my company, I may have a hard time hiring people. The good thing is, in a free farking country I get to decide what I want to do. Me. Not you. Want to make decisions like this? Become me.

Just raise the price of the item to $2.00. I'm more than willing to pay a little extra if it means that your employees get decent health care.

You aren't the majority of people. If his produc ...


His competitors are facing the same cost increase he is. They will raise their prices too.

Perhaps if he put a little effort into developing incentives for his employees he would not be receiving all the backlash he is. But it is ok. Between big brains like PJ, and the republican governors who are inviting the feds into there states to run insurance exchanges, I am pretty sure single payer is not too far off.

Why does this legislation require businesses to provide an insurance option? Why not require the insurance companies to provide affordable options to people, especially since now everyone is behooved to pay into the insurance kitty? It's set up businesses as the middleman, and the middleman typically is at much more risk of being screwed.
Everyone is going to be paying into the system, so shouldn't the individual cost of said system drop dramatically? Why bring in the 3rd party? I'll admit to a lot of ignorance on the subject but I can't help that this aspect of the reform makes no sense to me.

Sounds like Papa John is from the same economic class as the dumbasses that just sunk the Twinkie.

And anyone that starts biatching about the workers in that case is getting insta-plonked. You know damn well that taking a bonus while your company is going through its 2nd bankruptcy is a bad idea. And you know damn well that pushing your workers' heads below water wage-wise and telling them they're greedy for trying to take a breath is a bad idea, too.

You're basically making the case for UHC. But in our current farked up system we expect employers to provide health insurance for some reason. Obamacare does fix it somewhat, but not nearly as much as UHC would.

But this one will make the progessives heads assplode. A liberal who supported Obama AND supports Obamacare is laying off people BECAUSE of Obamacare. Explain this one as an evil mustache twisting Republican. Why doesn't he just add the cost into his product instead of laying off 5% of his workforce? Economics and reality, how do they work?

badaboom: That is what makes it so complicated. We could provide HC to EVERYONE tomorrow. But can we afford it?


Absolutely, because it would be significantly cheaper (in the aggregate) that what we're paying now, due to the magic of monopsony buying power. (See: Medicaid, Medicare, every other 1st world country).

The savings generally come from squeezing providers (see: Medicaid). Some have more room to be squeezed than others. My favorite low-hanging fruit is the pharmaceutical industry: they spend more on marketing than R&D, and those two things combined are less than the difference between what the US pays and the rest of the world pays for drugs.

There are distributional consequences (for anything funded from taxes, the rich pay more and the poor pay less), but the savings alone would be extremely good for the economy. We peons have been asked to do without pensions, job security, health care, etc. because it supposedly makes the pie higher, but for some reason it's different when an economic reform might improve the economy while at the same time actually making little people's lives better.

tenpoundsofcheese: well, if we want that, and we want society to pay for it, then people need to step up and be part of society by doing everything they can to lower their health care costs:
Mandatory exercise, maximum calories per day, no smoking, alcohol, drugs, transfats, etc.

People want the freedom to do what they want and then want everyone else to pay for their consequences.


All that stuff makes so little difference in the overall cost of healthcare that, even if we did regulate it all, that would be about the 300th thing to look at. (Like defunding PBS to help the national debt).

SlothB77: Papa John doesn't know how to run his pizza business. The government should force Pizza restaurant owners to give their employees health insurance. If they don't, then our government should nationalize the pizza industry. It is for the greater good of ensuring pizza cooks and pizza delivery drivers get health insurance. After all, Obama knows how to run a pizza delivery franchise better than Papa John.


to be fair, it'd be amazing if he didn't know how to run a Pizza Franchise better than Papa John.

muck4doo: Peter von Nostrand: muck4doo: muck4doo: Peter von Nostrand: Employers are pissed that they can't keep passing off their responsibility to their employees to the rest of society.

I've never thought of healthcare being a responsibility of employers to their employees, but rather a perk offered to attract better people to work for them along with wages.

Employers should be responsible for making sure their employees keep a healthy diet too.

It's a perfect right wing circle of derp. Employers don't provide any assistance to their workers, who then depend on government to assist them, raising taxes and allowing the right wing to call those people the leeches of society

It's a perfect left wing circle of derp from another entitled child who thinks everyone else is responsible for taking care of him. Health insurance has always been a perk employers offer, how you think it should be an entitlement backed by the government says a lot about you. Want health insurance? Find a job that offers it. If you insist on making pizzas for dirt cheap, and no health insurance, well, that's on you. There are other pizza places that do offer benefits. Go apply at one of them. If Pappa John finds no one wants to make a serious career there for lack of health insurance, he might start offering it. Insisting someone else take care of your every whim and need as an entitlement or right is setting you up for a lot of disappointment in life. We already have programs in place to help those without insurance and, you can try looking them up if you're ever bored.

/No, you're not entitled to me looking them up for you.


It's so disgusting right? The takers and leeches think they are entitled to all kinds of socialist crap backed by the government! Like safe working conditions, not being discriminated against b/c of race or whatever 'boo hoo' class they are part of, not being sexually harassed, not being payed less b/c of gender, not working along side children in sweatshops, having the ability to unionize if they want, and don't EVEN get me started on that Commie pinko minimum wage BS.

I mean if your employer doesn't supply those things then people should just go out and get a REAL job. I mean history has repeatedly shown that the market takes care of it and there is no imbalance of power or collusion by the plutocrats that requires some type of intervention.

Anyone who rakes in that kind of cash that can't see to either paying their employees enough to buy their own insurance or including it as part of their compensation package is not who I want to do business with.

SlothB77: Papa John doesn't know how to run his pizza business. The government should force Pizza restaurant owners to give their employees health insurance. If they don't, then our government should nationalize the pizza industry. It is for the greater good of ensuring pizza cooks and pizza delivery drivers get health insurance. After all, Obama knows how to run a pizza delivery franchise better than Papa John.


I so wish there was a thumbs down button here.
That's not what this is about, you farktard. This is about giving employees health insurance, not whether his pizza is good. the only thing this has to do with pizza is that fact that the CEO wants his employees to be sick while handling food. That it costs 1.3% of what he makes to give his employees health benefits and that he still refuses to do so makes him a greedy asshole.

I'm really not seeing how getting a tax credit for providing healthcare would hurt profits. We're talking about not treating your employees like shiat.

Silly Jesus:

Define greed, if you can still see your screen through the spittle.


I know it's a troll, but I'm bored, so... Greed is not realizing (or refusing to realize) that the society you live in and especially the peons that work for you for at barely above minimum wage helped you get and keep that $7M mansion and the $30 M in wealth you have. They should share in the success of the company they helped to create with you and run for you.

Greed is forgetting where you came from.

rewind2846: F*ck him and his f*ckin sh*tty pizza. I never went to any of his stores before, and since I got wind of his assholiness I've not only made it a point to avoid them, but to ask my friends and family to do the same.
Anyone who rakes in that kind of cash that can't see to either paying their employees enough to buy their own insurance or including it as part of their compensation package is not who I want to do business with.

See conservatives, when us liberals/progressives say things like "eat the rich", we mean assholes like this guy.
Not all or most rich people, just greedy f*ckers like this one.


Or like the CEO who runs Stryker who is laying off 5% of his workforce due to Obamacare. Oh wait, he gave money to Obama AND supports Obamacare. Guess HE is ok, right?

No, moron. I could give not one sh*t if he supports the ACA or the president in any capacity, or who has voted democrat since he hit 18. The issue, had you read the thread, was about treating the people who work for you like human beings. The asshole in this story is using the current administration as an excuse to fark his workers out of something he could do for them and should do for them - seeing as they are responsible for his wealth. Instead he decided to act like a little pissy baby, taking his toys and going home when the other kids didn't let him win.

If he didn't like the blah man in the white house, fine... plenty of moron republicans don't, and that's their mental deficiency. When you choose take your butthurt out on the minimum wage grunts that work for you, that's a new level of assholiness that has to be addressed. Best way for me to do this is not to buy his product and to encourage others to do the same.

BTW, Stryker corp was planning to cut that 5% way back in november of 2011: Link
