Many employers threatened to cut jobs if President Obama won again. Some even replaced their threats with action by following through.
Papa John’s CEO, John Schnatter, told his employees that he would start cutting their hours because Obama care costs his franchise too much money to provide health care coverage to all their employees that work over 30 hours. Those employees are insured by the company and by cutting their hours, Papa John’s no longer have to insure them under what he is calling a pricier plan, according to the Huffington Post. Schnatter said:
“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.”
He had the nerve to mention in the next breath that “the good news is 100 percent of the population is going to have health insurance.” Oh, you mean, the part of the 100 percent that used to have full-time hours at Papa John’s?
It doesn’t seem like a good move on behalf of a business owner to make these kind of remarks and let the country know that you’re making movies to underemploy their children. What a shame. I used to like that Papa John’s. sigh.
