Notice how they’re all old white men for the exception of one (white) woman.
Unfortunately, the comments of this franchisee, who represents less than 1 percent of our system and who owns restaurants in other concepts, has been portrayed as reflective of the entire Denny’s brand. I am confident his perspective is not shared by the company or hundreds of franchisees/small business owners who make up the majority of the Denny’s community. Specifically, his comments suggesting that guests might reduce the customary tip provided to their server as an offset to his proposed surcharge are inconsistent with our values and approach to business throughout our brand.Denny’s CEO John Miller • In a statement addressing the controversy surrounding Denny’s franchisee John Metz’s comments about The Affordable Care Act. A number of Denny’s locations around the country have faced boycotts and/or barrages of angry phone calls from people outraged by Metz’s suggestion of adding a “5 percent surcharge for Obamacare” to menus at locations he owns. source (via shortformblog)
This is John Schnatter’s, uh, “house”:
“The house is 40,000 square feet and it resembles a castle. One interesting feature on this 16-acre estate is the 22-car underground garage, complete with an office for valet parking, a car wash and even a motorized turn table to move limousines.”
His property also includes his own golf course.
A delivery driver for Papa John’s makes about $6.50/hr. A shift manager? $9.60/hr.
Schnatter says the company “cannot afford” to provide health care for his employees.
Fuck that guy.
And he wonders why he doesn’t have enough money to give all of his employees health insurance? Seriously? This asshole needs to stop trying to pull a political stunt and offer people insurance.
Papa John’s workers need a fuckin union.
Nothing more than a hooligan. You’ve lost 2 faithful customers in my household. If your employees are going to lose their jobs regardless I’d rather they lose them because people like me will not support a political shakeshift, extortionist like you.
