    If he won't hire people to serve food, then other restaurants will get his business. I wish all Applebee's Restaurants would immediately implement an attrition policy whereby employees who leave are not replaced. By the end of the year the chain would cease to exist.

    The reason they say this crap is because they really believe they are the job creators. They really believe that without them nobody would find anything useful to do.

    It's funny how folks whose dogma revolves around the notion of competition don't seem to grasp the first thing about competition.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      They put money into advertising (like Papa John's pizza giveaway ad with Peyton Manning which has to cost a good buck) and then they say stupid things like this and create negative PR.  

      Do they think telling the public they will screw their employers even more than they already do is going to make the public flock to their stores?  

      Great businessmen, just like Romney (NOT)!
