All i can say to the people mad about companies that are doing this is you reap what you sew. If you supported obama, and supported his health care plan...this is what happens, and you got exactly what you wanted.
No one cares about the fact that socialized medicine has either failed and/or bankrupted every nation thats tried it. People in Europe brag about it too...hasn't it bankrupted you guys also? Last i heard they were trying to ditch it there as well. Its not even just that...its the quality of care...why do you think people came to the US for care from all over the world, including nations with socialized medicine?
Behold, the "job creators" are actually chameleons. They're job creators when exploiting labor is simple. They're beleaguered business men when labor demands that it be treated with a certain respect and dignity. Honestly, they're only opening the hole for more ethical leaders to blow them out of the water by hiring a better work force.
What I find incredibly sad and pathetic is that democraps will boycott a company, thus making it even further difficult to generate revenue. Moreover, the guy has spent his entire career building a business which employees thousands around the world, yet you're going to bitch and cry because he's been paid well for his accomplishment?
Without men and women who roll the dice, risk themselves financially and their career to build a dream you wouldn't have many of the companies which employee sometimes hundreds of thousands of people, yet you're crying because they've been compensated for that?
So let me try and break down this logic.
- Liberals yell and scream that they support Obamacare.
- Economists warn way ahead of time about the increased costs.
- Liberals denounce it.
- Obamacare starts coming into effect.
- Businesses everywhere start to adjust for these costs.
- Liberals yell and scream that adjusting is mean and unethical.
Am I following?

I'd also like to add some food for thought...
We have millionaire celebrities, that tell us who we should vote for, lambaste the opposition, yet provide nothing to society.
We have millionaire musicians, that sing about how fucked up one side is over the other, yet provide nothing to society.
We have millionaire athletes, who we call role models, talk all day about, root for their teams, yet they provide nothing to society.
In fact we look up to all these people and damn near deify them in their own right. We want to look like them, dress like them, throw a ball like them, yet they really do not contribute to society.
Yet here we have people...who give people jobs....JOBS...and you are going to speak of them like they are the worst people in the world.
I could be wrong, but while parts of Obamacare have been implemented, it has not been put in in its entirety yet.
Businesses always have to adjust costs. Its just how things work, and ultimately if a business cannot adapt to a new business setting it will die out. Papa Johns drastically overreacted and made a public spectacle hyperbolizing the cost to his company, especially given that his competition would be facing increased costs as well. It was, therefore, not a rational adaptation but a serious blunder that has already begun to hurt his company.
No one is saying that when met with increased costs measures must be taken into account to balance the new costs out. The objection is that the costs are being passed entirely onto the workers when the cost is not as high as the CEO estimated, and there is a massive surplus for upper management that doesn't justify passing it onto the workers even if he were not to raise the price of his pizzas by a minute amount.
Its funny how things change when you actually apply logic and reason to a situation rather than looking at it in terms of black or white.

If it was entirely passed onto the business, the price increase would be much larger. Surely lowering demand.
And that isn't what anyone wants.
Or are you suggesting the company should just eat the profit loss?
