Papa John's CEO John Schnatter says he will likely be reducing workers' hours as a result of President Obama's reelection and the promise of Obamacare remaining in tact:

Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter said he plans on passing the costs of health care reform to his business onto his workers. Schnatter said he will likely reduce workers’ hours, as a result of President Obama's reelection, the Naples News reports. 
Nevermind the inaccuracy of his (and others') claims that Obamacare neccesitates the firing of or reduction of workers' hours. Increased costs due to Obamacare will not exist for many businesses, and can be offset easily in numerous ways for large corporations.

Let's forget this for a moment and consider that these threats of reducing workers' hours is coming from a man who is currently running a national promotion to give away 2 million free pizzas:

Free pizzas? No problem!

Providing health care to workers? It's just too large a burden to bear.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
