Every other chain store businesses which don't give benefits to their part time workers (which is nearly all of them) also don't go out of their way to advertise nationally how they give away millions of their products for free every year.
Them and every other chain store businesses which doesn't give benefits to part time workers (which is nearly all of them). So why single out Papa John's?
Every other one? No. But Papa John's is not the only one. Do the kids working the Fryolater or grill at McDonalds get health benefits? They spend probably a **** of a lot more money on various charitable things though, don't they? Point being that tons of chain style businesses are facing this dilemma, and many of them are choosing the same path as Papa John's. How about Wendy's? AppleBees? Red Lobster? Taco Bell? That's just a short list that came up on a quick google search. And those are the ones that there's been some public discussion over because of this issue. Papa John's just made a more public deal of blaming Obamacare for this.
Actually kind of hilarious that someone whose business model revolves around throwing money away is complaining about higher overhead costs.
Charity is "throwing money away"? Perhaps the complaint is that the business should get to decide how to give its money away, not the government. Cause you know: freedom!
