Take your politics elsewhere. This is for deals not bloviating your opinions.

Love me some Papa Johns!

This boycott stuff is nonsense. Papa John's is a collection of small independent businesses. Your local Papa John's is a franchise and owned by a local businessman. When you boycott him, you are hurting a local business and business owner. Papa John, John Schnatter, was just saying what he thought individual franchise owners would do in response to Obamacare because they do not make enough of a profit to insure all of their employees. With your backwards logic, you would expect these small business owners to make less money than their employees in order to insure them. Working at a pizza place is not a career. If you want health insurance, either get a real job or get on the government plan, that's what the exchanges are for.

@davephilly: Way to go...hurt a small business owner and get his employees laid off...we are so proud of you! You're not costing Papa John a single red cent because he is still collecting his franchise fee. You should try to start a boycott of a family run grocery store while you're at it.

vote-for3vote-against

@davephilly: Wow...are you really that ignorant? He already offers insurance to 100% of his corporate employees and workers in company owned stores, he is not responsible for insuring the staff of all of the independently owned and operated Papa John's franchises. Do you know how a franchise works? It's up to each individual franchise owner to insure their own staff because each of those restaurants is owned by them. He was giving his opinion of what he thought the franchise owners would do in response to Obamacare. Some of them simply won't be able to afford it. You are not going to see a lot of franchisees in small markets willing to take up to a 50% profit cut to insure all of their employees, nor should you expect to. If you can't make more than your employees, what's the point of even owning a business? Owning a franchise is a lot more work than taking orders, making pizzas, and delivering them.

@bigray57: Dude, stop. Everyone is tired of you posting this exact same comment every time a Papa John's deal is posted. If you don't like his pizza don't eat it. If you disagree with his practices, don't eat his pizza, but stay out of the way when the rest of us want to post and discuss a deal.

@carlosarnold: And exactly why should everyone else be politically correct just so you can pretend that your actions don't have consequences.

@publiclurker: There isn't any reason anyone should be politically correct. Just pick the proper forum.

This -isn't- it.

vote-for6vote-against

@publiclurker: Exactly! Buying a pizza from a locally owned Papa John's could do things like stimulate the local economy, result in the hiring of more people, raises for those people, etc...How dare he do such things because the corporate CEO expressed his opinion on what he thought franchise owners would do! This isn't even a political issue, it's just an issue of complete ignorance spreading like wildfire. John Schnatter offered insurance to all of his employees long before Obamacare came to be. People working for the franchises are not his employees. They work for a local business. He believes those franchise owners won't be able to afford to insure their employees because they are just regular people like you and me trying to run a business and make ends meet. These people aren't making millions of dollars, they are lucky if they are making $100,000 after all their expenses and it could cost between $25,000 and $50,000 to insure all their employees. Think, McFly! Think!

@omnichad: Five? FIVE? HA! It looks like his comments are being deleted as spam, as they should be if you ask me. He posts the same spam every time someone mentions Papa John's. Sometimes with a picture.

@publiclurker: This isn't about being publicly correct. If you know the poster's history, you'd understand what I'm talking about, but since you don't, close your mouth before you make a fool of yourself. Also, read the other comments before you make your own smart-a comment, and that might help too.

@carlosarnold: So, you agree that you think we are all supposed to be politically correct so that you don't have to face the consequences of your actions. I guess that makes sense. Since you seem to think that everyone should be honored for the privilege of doing your work for you under rather pathetic conditions, I guess we should also be similarly honored at curbing our speech so you can feel good about your decisions.

@pdayok: Well, if they can't afford to properly pay and support their employees, then maybe they should find another line of business. funny how these people seem to think that they are entitled to have everyone else sacrifice for their benefit.

vote-for5vote-against

@bigray57: If you don't want to buy from them, then don't. But don't try to force your own agenda on anybody else.

you know what---I have never had a Pappa John's pizza because we have a local pizza shop that makes fabulous pizza for a fair price and he's a nice guy besides, so I like to support him.

But, just because you are always such an asshole over this every time a Pappa John's deal is listed, I am ordering 2 for supper and treating my neighbor to the second one and ordering 2 for my friend and her family for supper too. Maybe that will show you how effective your mouthing off constantly is.

Besides--nobody is forced to work at Pappa John's. If they don't like the conditions or circumstances they can work elsewhere.

@davephilly: I'd bet he doesn't really give a crap if he get's your money or not. He'll just sit in his castle and eat steak and lobster without you, lol.

I'll be glad to help him out though : )

@publiclurker: That makes no sense at all. You want to talk about entitlement, if you work at a pizza place you shouldn't be entitled benefits, that is insane...you aren't harping about the mom and pop shops that aren't providing health insurance for their workers because you are a hypocrite. You have a head full of partial facts and distorted truths and you just run with them without educating yourself any further. No one would ever start a business if they had to provide every benefit in the world to people who do a job that requires no skill. Do you understand start up costs, starting in the hole, etc? A lot of these people are taking loans out and trying to provide for families. People who think they should be getting full benefits while working at a pizza parlor are greedy fools.

Papa John has been watching CASTLE WAY TOO MUCH

vote-for3vote-against

@publiclurker: You act as if only rich greedy people start businesses when, in reality, it's a lot of middle class people trying to make a better life for themselves and their family or who are tired of working for someone else. In what world should they make the same amount as their employees when they are taking all the risk and doing the real work? If only rich people started businesses, we wouldn't have google, apple, microsoft, etc...all these small companies started with employees they didn't offer benefits to, but they grew and were able to. You are basically saying no one should ever be able to benefit themselves or work towards a better life. In your world, everyone should be on the dole, angry at "the man", and feeling entitled to something they didn't work for or earn.

By the way, he does give his employees a health insurance option, the franchisee's choose what to do for their employees. The new article was completely wrong about him and has been retracted, big write in yesterdays USA today, check your facts people

I think the real question is why is health insurance linked to your job. Why can't it be offered at a seemingly reasonable price to the general public? Why isn't my car insurance offered through my employer?

vote-for6vote-against

Whoever is recommending a boycott needs to realize many well known retailers, restaurants, and grocery stores are cutting full time employees' hours or hiring part time only ( equals less benefits). In the south eastern area of the U.S., a large grocery chain is laying off many store managers and "encouraging" them to re-apply without a clear explanation!!!! You know why.
