Lmao. I clicked on this thread precisely because I had a feeling there'd be an AmazingAtheist video in it. lol
Having said that; Papa John's is my Friday night tradition. A large classic pepperoni and a sixer of Coors (and maybe a chick or 3 Tongue ) I couldn't care less about the politics of it. If a small african child had to die for me to get my pizza; well we wouldn't want his death to have been in vain, now would we?

Birdman, you constantly amaze me with your stupidity.

Is it not obvious?
They do it in the hope that people will cause an uproar that prices are going up and hence be against Obamacare and hence it wont happen and hence they wont have to pay higher healthcare costs.
It's not a bad strategy, but it's not a good one either.

It might not have been a bad strategy had Romney won and the Republicans took over the Senate but since neither of those things happened and the Affordable Care Act is the Law of the Land with no path to repeal, it's about the stupidest marketing strategy I can think of. All you're gonna do is piss off potential customers. Sounds brilliant.

No one is making people eat shit food. Non issue
No one is making anyone work for these companies. Non issue
There is nothing illegal about cutting hours.

Also, havent watched the video, but it appears this pizza/junk food issue directly effects the amazing atheist LolIdea

Nope, nothing illegal about being a goddam heartless piece of shit prick in the name of profit, Girly's quite familiar with that particular prick neighborhood myself.

Cry a fucking river. There are employers that are notorious for said things. Wal-mart, CVS, Lowe's etc etc. If you don't want to get shit on, don't work in a toilet. If all these types hate the fat cats soo bad, go work for one of Warran Buffet's companies. Who watches youtube video's about fat wookie's gay rape prison fantasies anyway?

Where are all the employers who are happy about this?

How exactly is this stupidity? If I come up with some idea that makes my the company I work for a few million more dollars that my boss can shove in his pocket, I see nothing extra from it. The benefits still suck, my pay stays the same, and there is no reason to try. These asshat ceo's are cutting everything they can from the employees that make them filthy stinking rich. Do you see any reason at all to try to keep the job?

Welllllllllllllll thats only part true. You can eat smart at these places and still not get insulin resistance. By eating too many starches (fries) and sugars (Sugary drinks) you're contributing to the problem. But if you eat a burger only, with water or a diet drink you're actually not doing your body that bad.. I'm not advocating a diet of nothing but fast food, but its not the demon that its been painted.

RE: Papa Johns, Denny's, etc raising prices and cutting employee hours for Obamacare
So health insurance costs 11-14 cents per pizza, so 12.5 cents on average.

He increases the price of pizzas 20 cents, thus making an 8.5 cent profit on employees he ensures.

Except he is also cutting hours so that he won't even have to ensure them, thus making a 20 cent profit.


Is it just me or is does it sound like he just using this all as an excuse to raise the price up 20 cents, while offering as few people as possible actual health care, and stuffing almost all of that 20 cents per pie in his pocket?

People like this should just be killed....disgusting waste of oxygen.
