Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter told an audience at Edison State College in Naples, Florida that he’d be cutting worker hours as a direct result of Obamacare.

“That’s what you do, is you pass on costs,” he told the students. “Unfortunately, I don’t think people know that they’re going to pay for this.”

Schnatter attracted attention earlier this year as well when he told his stockholders that the cost of a Papa John’s pizza will increase by between 11 and 14 cents due to Obamacare.

    Pa Pa John can give away 1,000,000. pizza but will cut people from work because of Obama care! I’m going back to Pizza Hut. Your just another Obama hatter

  • Ummmm I’m trying to figure out whey you would have to cut hours AND increase the costs of the pizza…..why would you need to increase the cost if you are already cutting hours….Obamacare is just revealing the greedy.

    If you can not afford an extra 14 cents to help pay for everyones healthcare , then maybe you should not be buying and pizza , just make it yourself

  • Papa John’s should be renamed “Papas Junk”
