I saw this coming a mile away.  Most business owners were holding out hope that Obamacare would be repealed.   Most owners thought common sense would prevail, but free stuff beat freedom.

papa john's CEO will reduce workers hours in response to Obamacare.......   The people in this administration that set up Obabmacare are not too bright.....

Schnatter went on to say he's neither in support of, nor against the Affordable Care Act, even admitting that "the good news is 100 percent of the population is going to have health insurance.” But he’s not the only one in the chain restaurant industry to admit that workers hours may be reduced, since Obamacare mandates that only employees that work more than 30 hours per week are covered under their employers health insurance plan.

Well there is an easy solution to that.. 

1) Universal health care paid by your taxes.
2) lowering the number of hours required to cover health insurance. 

Right now companies have found another excuse to stick it to the middle class and fill their own coffers.

100% copout..

Maybe Papa Johns should stop offering shoddy health insurance and there wouldnt be any change in costs?

Companies bitching about Obamacare should start offering benefits that are worth a crap and there would be no issue.

Health insurance that has swiss cheese coverage is a waste to the employee and to the economy..why offer a plan that does nothing and has ultra low maximums?

Because it's one of the many ways these corporate people get into an employee's pocket.  Offering shitty health coverage, not matching 401K, you know the game.

So they laid off 30 people(15 from coporate office and 15 from Printing and Promotion) and each pizza will cost 11-14 cents more. It sounds more like a political statement than anything else.

Why are you so angry Don juan ?    Your guy won!

Why all the anger,name calling and bitterness ?   Is it because of what you know in your heart, what the next four years under Obama will really bring ..

Is that why you areacting like a SORE WINNER ?

Not bragging or gloating.. however, If these nuts want to continue this BS for 4 more years, I'm telling them again Obama won, get over it,   and a little soul searching is in order.

And yes, they need to be punished a little. Because, (and this is important) I tried to welcome them and unite us again... but they keep on and on and on with this BS, so let the suffer awhile!  Maybe they will learn. But I doubt it.
