You could buy a car for about $10000.00 less if it weren't for unions and all their benefits!

Wow, you are definetly the hypocrite in all this. You think all of us are going to be able to get those high paying jobs? Think again. All of us are not going to just magically become the middle class now that obama is serving 4 more years. It does not work that way. There will always be the poorer person who's only chance is Papa Johns, or MacDonalds, or any of those other jobs that you believe should not exist becaues they are mininum pay. No one put a gun to my head to work for any of these companies, but life and finances made me bite the proverbial bullet to take them. I had to lower my own pride and sense of self worth to work these jobs because I always felt I was capable to get something better... well, you know what? The better is very hard to come by. The rate things are going now, there are just going to be even more poor and dependant people. Because of loud mouths like you who feel you should speak for everyone, even the Papa Johns worker who works two mininum wage jobs to support his/her two kids while not accepting defeat by going to the DHS office, and who used to have a great job but things definitely got rough. Your boycot will not hurt papa johns with just you hollaring for "justtice!", but if you yelled enough and (as proven in the elections) the majority of the people think the same way as you do will just follow suit, thinking they are making a change.. yea, change my ass... No one ever sees the bigger picture anymore... why???
Go ahead, put papa johns out of business, make those employees lose their jobs... at least you done something for the little man...

$.14 added to a pizza to cover all his employees. Maybe had he stated that he would cover them by adding the $.14 he would have gotten more business. I would support him even if the pizza is crap. Never ceases to amaze me why a business that depends on the public would piss off half of his possible customers by weighing in this political horse crap. Sean Hannity as GM Motors spokesperson. Who's the genius behind that???

The typical idiot that has never ran a company and doesn't know how economics work. I challenge you to run a business and see how that works out for you, I would be willing to bet that you wouldn't last a year. If you don't like us "rednecks" just leave and get yourself a $20 p/h job, I promise we won't miss you. Go somewhere else and pay your union dues, unions stopped working for the working man 50 years ago.
I live in rural Cookeville TN, i am 26 years old, i have owned my own company, and sold my part out to my business partner, and made a very nice nest egg. I currently hold a $20/hr non-union job, and i am a redneck, your entire argument is invalid. Say something else...

Good to know, I'll be ordering exclusively from Papa Johns.

FYI Dominos is also run by hard core conservatives and Pizza Hut is gives more to republicans too.

Interesting how these successful chains were created by hard working conservatives who have created hundreds of thousands of jobs for people. Nobody is forcing them to work at those chains. They can go to school and get a better job like many Americans have done or they can work service industry jobs, life's not fair deal with it.

So if you liberals want to be completely guilt free it looks like it'll be pick-up from some crappy pizza chain.

Dominos, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns are all crappy pizza chains.
Thanks, but I'll stick with the local pizzeria. Forget the crappy corporate chain stores.

The union eployees took a cut in pay and benefits in 2008. In return, Management promised to revamp the company and make it profitable.

Instead, the CEO TRIPLED his pay, and the manageing officers increased their pay by 80%. Without coming through on their promise to revamp the company.

And now they demanded the employess take another cut?

No, it wasn't the unions that destroyed Hostess, it was the vulture capitalists that did. Hostess got Bain'd.

Read this, to see how this level of greed is destroying the country. We the people shouldn't be subsidising the wealth of the 1% because they're too greedy to pay their employees enough to live on.

Forbes magazine (Hardly a liberal rag) showed that it would actually cost PJs a mere .04 to .05 cents to insure his people and keep them healthy.

He could afford to do it jsut by NOT doing his annual pizza giveaway.

And his customers would not be getting a free dose of Influenza, common cold, TB, Whooping Cough, or god knows what disease because the people making and delivering that Pizza aren't coming to work sick.

He can afford to insure his pizza, and NOT feel the pain one bit, but he and these other GOP CEOs are having their childish hissy fits because their guy didn't win.

Understand this: John Schnatter can AFFORD to pay for health care for his employees, AND NOT FEEL THE LOSS OF THE MONEY ONE BIT. He'd still be filthy rich. He wouldn't go broke. In fact, he'd make MORE money, because people wouldn't be avoiding his product.

But he'd rather suck the life, literally, out of his employees, because he sees them as beneath him. And if you're not on the same financial level as he, he sees you the same way. So why are you supporting this guy, who hates you and your neighbors?

Another genius post (NOT) by OS.

You're just mad at the world, right?

What a loser.

We already know from your other posts that you're a pathetic lowlife loser sucking off the public nipple.

Go eat another Twinkie while you still can, and smoke another cancer stick. Then you can cost us taxpaying citizens even more.
