"In the wake of President Obama's reelection, one CEO is doubling down on his criticisms of Obamacare.

Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter said he plans on passing the costs of health care reform to his business onto his workers. Schnatter said he will likely reduce workers’ hours, as a result of President Obama's reelection, the Naples News reports. Schnatter made headlines over the summer when he told shareholders that the cost of a Papa John’s pizza will increase by between 11 and 14 cents due to Obamacare.

"I got in a bunch of trouble for this," he said, referring to the comments he made in August, according to Naples News. "That's what you do, is you pass on costs. Unfortunately, I don't think people know what they're going to pay for this."

Schnatter went on to say he's neither in support of, nor against the Affordable Care Act, even admitting that "the good news is 100 percent of the population is going to have health insurance.” But he’s not the only one in the chain restaurant industry to admit that workers hours may be reduced, since Obamacare mandates that only employees that work more than 30 hours per week are covered under their employers health insurance plan. For example, Darden restaurants, the parent company of Olive Garden and Red Lobster, has already experimented with reducing workers hours in anticipation of the legislation.

Others have responded to the added costs of Obamacare more harshly, including Applebee's which has said it won’t hire new workers because of the law. Just this week, a Georgia business owner also claimed he cut employees due to Obamacare and in fact had specifically laid off those who he thought had voted for President Obama." - huffingtonpost

Maybe Papa John should have thought more of his employees and less of doing shit like this

I think the cost of that giveaway might have covered some insurance.

I'm sure his workers will understand that he deserves the limousine turntable. Those things are really hard to turn around.

Obviously maintain his own level of comfort is more important than being a job creator.

If I were to ever buy that shitty ass pizza, I would be happy to pay an extra 14 cents a pizza if that meant that the employees in those shitty ass jobs had health care.

In his case, around in circles. Once you stuff a limo full of hundred dollar bills and watch it spin on the limo turntable, it's kind of hard to go back.

That outfit's a little loud. And the woman in the back just needs a stormtrooper helmet to complete her ensemble.
