Papa John's CEO says he will cut hours to 30 to avoid healthcare: WE CAN HELP!



Hey everybody! How about we start sending this around Facebook, Twitter, DU. You know how those CEOs hate bad publicity. John Schnatter is a bit of a media whore but that's when he is controlling the message. How about we put him in the hotseat for a little while?

That could occur from an increase in the price of milk.

These businessmen care more about the politics than the actual policy. A company that size can easily absorb the costs.

44. Same at Walmart

 

They will send employees home (without pay) if the sales are down for that day or they will send them home if they are getting too close to 40 hours in a week. They also hire people for a lower-paying job (janitor) and then assign them to work a higher paying job (cashier) but they get paid the lower rate.

There is no union but they have an "open door" policy where you can go talk to a manager about a complaint and they wont hold it against you.

I know someone who was told to do something that was not part of his assigned job and in the rule book it says he is not supposed to do. He refused so they, right on the spot, accused him of doing drugs. Of course he denied it (because he wasnt doing drugs) they then told him to take a drug test right then and there. Angry at the accusation he said no. They fired him on the spot for "refusing to take a drug test in compliance with his employee obligations." The managers were bragging about having him fired in the break room later that day.

15. I've been boycotting them for months.

It might be that those of us, and there were many, made a differece when we turned to other Pizza companies, and that's really why he is cutting hours. I really love their pizza, and have to say that I miss it. But, their politics define them. I will not eat that pizza again. Many progressives started boycotting them when they came out in support of Chic fa lay (sp.) I have not regretted it for a minute. I am tired of people of another color, or same gender lover, getting shunned and put down. I don't have a gay child, but, I do have a gay grandchild. My arms are always open for all people, as long as they aren't being nasty to others.

19. Don't all the chains already cut hours?

My brother and his wife both work for a huge retail corporation that won't allow either of them full-time status to avoid benefits. My brother was promoted to department manager and is still not allowed full time status, even during holidays.

There was a front page article in a recent Sunday NYT about how many companies are minimizing hours using sophisticated computer programs. They tell staffers to report for 2-3 hour "shifts", then send them home, and maybe the employee only gets 20 hours some weeks. And the companies want flexibility, so they vary the hours widely every day, and the employees can't pick up other jobs.

To pretend this has anything to do with Obamacare is just partisan and deceptive.

Don't eat at chains unless you have no other options. Support local family businesses!

24. Get the word out to his employees & potential employees. More effective than a boycott.

All the companies compete under the same rules. If Schnatter wants to compete by squeezing employees, then he will end up with worse employees because the better ones will leave. In the modern world, that is a FAIL.

54. workmans compensation is a totally different ballgame

it deals with injury on the job and replacement of wages while undergoing healing.

Healthcare is something we're all going to need at one point in our lives, wc, not so much if you're lucky.

His employees are probably not making enough to stay home if they are sick which leads to them coming to

work,spreading the sauce and germs, and giving us all a chance to become ill.

What a piece of work the United States employment system is, and these plutocrats want more from us drones every day.

62. Yes, I know. Probably didn't word my last post properly.

My husband owned a business until like 2004 (I mean for many years he went into business in 1987)

I am trying to recall what the deal was with workers comp insurance and how the premiums were assessed.

We had mostly full time people that obviously we carried it for, in case they were injured on the job (it's the law) but it seems to me there was something different about the part time laws for workers comp (I may be totally wrong)

I would have to look this up because my memory is hazy. Maybe we paid premiums on everyone, I just don't remember.

We only had one part time employee who was a HS kid who came in for a couple of hours after school each day to help clean.

With all that said, we paid for our employees health insurance and we were a very small company (like 6 employees)

A Republican would probably counter with we were stupid and that's why we went out of business (NOT)

We went out of business because the economy went to hell (under BUSH) earlier than it did around the rest of the country!

I haven't ordered Papa Johns since I was in college some 15+ years ago. It was bad pizza then. The ingredients stopped far from the crust and the crust was basically tasteless. I assume the tasteless crust was why they had to give you the garlic sause for free to dip it in.

Anyway... it is sad this guy became so rich on such an inferrer product. There were local/regional chains that had better pizza at a better price.

If any company lays off sixteen we need to find one that will hire seventeen and "we" could spread the word about their noble deed. They could all use a bit of pr and we know we need more jobs to continue our forward progression.
How many of these anti Obama types were just waiting for his victory to use as an excuse to lay off people,cut their hours or not hire new help? We need to beat them at their own game. Boycotting is indeed a start but we need to stay ahead of them and not let them get away with such a heartless act. After all they seem to think it's OK for THEM to have healthcare but not for their help. It's OK for them to have great benefits,paid vacations etc. It's time the worker gets respect,a living wage and benefits. They are not asking for a handout.

41. Yeah. Most of the fuckwad employers who want to avoid any kind of employee benefit program.

keep all their workers on part-time status. The full-time people are paid a little better than minimum wage, but get nothing beyond that. If you're sick, you lose a day of pay if you can't make it in. Wanna take a vacation -assuming, of course, you could even affort to take one - lose whatever time you take off in wages. I worked for a jerk and his wife a few years back and who hired a bunch of people to do clerical data entry and they brought them in as "consultants" so they could keep from paying payroll related taxes, FICA, etc. I knew what they were doing was not legal under the Federal Wage and Hour Act, but I had already left the company. Turns out that one young woman was hired whose uncle is an attorney. He told her that what they were doing was illegal and that she should report them. Long story short, she did and they were given the beatdown by the Wage & Hour bureau and the IRS. Love that outcome.

Would a petition such as recently done with Chick Fil A make any difference?

I refuse to eat at Papa John's Now. I also refuse to eat at Chick-Fil-A and shop a Hobby Lobby. General rule...if the place is closed on Sundays, avoid them like the plague.

Can someone start a thread of places to avoid, and places to shop and eat? I'd love to eat and shop based at places who do not discriminate, cut workers hours, and support right wing politicians and right wing interest groups.

I have eaten Papa Johns pizza ONCE and it sucked.

Red Lobster, Applebees, Olive Garden--they are all akin to the quality of McDonald's as far as I am concerned (in other words they suck)

I ate at an olive garden about a year ago because someone else insisted on going there and ended up with food poisoning.

I wish I could say my boycott will make a difference, but I don't eat at these crappy places to begin with!

58. Anyone that lives in the Northeast that would eat that crap is crazy.

NY and CT and have some of the best pizza in the entire United States.
I would not touch that fake processed crap with a ten foot pole. There is great, local pizza in CT down the street from me and the people are paid well and happy that work there.

Though I do feel bad for that asshole's employees.

59. No surprise there, Papa Johns sucks anyway.

Same thing Wal-Mart & other employers have done for years. Typical scumbag management style.

72. One of my daughter's worked for Costco, GREAT benefits even for p/t

Same with my other daughter who works for Barnes & Noble. That guy is a typical right wing asshole. Lives like he thinks he's royalty, while screwing his employees. I can only imagine the cheap garbage ingredients in his pizzas. Had it once. Yuck. LIke pizza for a school lunch. Totally bland.

I'll stick with my local pizza joint or RoundTable which is employee owned!!

77. Capitalism

 

That's the beuty of a free market economy. We do not have to eat his pizza, and his employees do not have to work there.

79. I sent Papa a letter

 

informing him that because of his retribution against his employee's healthcare needs, I would never buy another of his pizzas.

I meant it too. They make a decent pizza, but many other more prudent pizza house owners haven't publicly decried ACA and threatened their employees.

80. Publicize Progressive Pizza Parlors

"@Will_Bunch: If there's a progressive pizza company (doesn't seem to be!) let's name it so liberals can eat there and boycott the neanderthals"
