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.


Cry moar. In 40 years old folks will be protesting with misspelled signs saying "Keep your Govmunt hands off my Obamacare"

antidisestablishmentarianism: I prefer Papa Murphy over Papa John. That shiat is delicious.


There's a bar that just started delivering pizzas here and they are the shiat. $9.00 large 1-topping delivered. The sauce is a little weak, but good and they do not skimp on the cheese. We actually learned to not order extra cheese.

The funniest thing it they're called Paddy's Backdoor Pizza (because they're run out of the back of the bar). Their menu includes an Italian Stallion and a Meat Explosion.

I still cannot bring myself to order a Meat Explosion from Paddy's Backdoor Pizza. Would never be able to say it on the phone without breaking into juvenile snickers.

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.

If I leave the prices the same, but say on the menu that there is a 5 percent surcharge for Obamacare, customers have two choices. They can either pay it and tip 15 or 20 percent, or if they really feel so inclined, they can reduce the amount of tip they give to the server, who is the primary beneficiary of Obamacare," Metz told The Huffington Post. "Although it may sound terrible that I'm doing this, it's the only alternative. I've got to pass the cost on to the consumer."

And I take it the fact that now you know what an incredible asshole "Papa" John is, it's not going to affect whether you continue patronizing their business or not. Just a guess.

Nope, not in the slightest.


Yeah, there's no reason that the people who prepare that pizza you enjoy, and who ensure that it arrives at your doorstep piping hot should have access to quality healthcare. People like that are of no importance. They should be grateful for the opportunity to serve a person like you.

Semi-Sane: Papa John is paying his employees exactly the wage they are worth. Working in a pizza place doesn't require much education or any decent technical skills or abilities. If they want to earn more they should get an education and find a better job, or they could always take a risk and start up their own business.

Let's see. 17000 people are going to be ordering pizzas being made and delivered by people for whom they support lowered hours, cutbacks, and no health insurance. If I were one of those people ordering that political pizza, I would be afraid to eat it.

well, yeah.
The public wants people to have health insurance, the public should provide it - not demand that someone else do so

Do you also hate that the public demands a minimum wage?

not particularly.
