27. To these "job creators" its heads they win, tails you lose.
They'll take action against the working stiff if Obama is elected, but even if their guy is elected, they'll still cut your pay or outsource your job. They'll take action against the working stiff if Obamacare is enacted, but even if its not, they'll still cut your pay or outsource your job.
Boycotts are the risk you take when you're dumb enough to mix business with politics. Business owners are always free to bitch to their buddies about our President. But when you announce it to the world, you should expect your business to take a hit. It works both ways; if a business owner announces to the world their love of all things Obama, they know there will be a reaction from conservatives that will affect their bottom line.
Boycott Papa Johns and spend your money at a competitor. That increased demand will lead to more hiring at the competitor and they will look for workers with experience in a pizza joint, so they can hire PJ's former employees. If a local PJ franchisee wants to, they can make it known that they don't share the views of their "boss". If they remain independent in business, they'll hold onto their customers.
