Papa John's vs. Obamacare

Below is an email from Richard Quandt, a MoveOn member who created a petition on, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.

Dear MoveOn member,

John Schnatter, CEO of Papa John's, is threatening to reduce worker's hours to 30 hours per week in order to avoid covering them under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

He claims it will cost an additional 11 to 14 cents per pizza to cover his employees, a cost he says he cannot absorb or pass along to customers. So he plans to make his employees absorb the cost through reduced hours and reduced pay.

That's why I created a petition on to Papa John's CEO John Schnatter, which says:

Stop punishing your employees. If you can afford to give away 2 million pizzas, you can find a way to afford 14 cents a pizza to cover your employees.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.
