Similar thing going on up here, the garbage truck drivers are now getting paid 100k a year thanks to their union. 100k. To drive a fucking garbage truck. WTF!

One man's trash is another man's treasure.  So just look at them like the gypsy Brinks transportation specialists that they really are.

I think it's actually funny how these union guys will stand up and defend this.  They'll bullshit you for hours.

Fuck it, I'm moving there.  I'm going to be a garbageman.

This story sounds more "sweat shop" than "union shop", if it's even real.

And why would the liberal media take a completely unverified, anonymous story such as this, and put a spotlight on it?

i think 100k per year - to pick up trash all day - might actually be worth it.

physically intense work in very tough/smelly circumstances.

They dont get out of their trucks here. They have hydraulic arms that pick the garbage can up and dump it. If your can isn't in proper position for them to pick it up (too far away from the road, turned slighlty, etc), too bad. They don't dump it. They don't get out of the trucks, period.

I don't really understand how the government got so involved with the collective bargaining and all that.

I absolutely think people should have the right to unionize, go on strike, slow down work and all that.  In their own capacity as private individuals.

Employers should have the right to set wages, fire those who won't work, etc...

Thats the way its supposed to work. The Government (I believe) largely took over the unions jobs in many cases, setting work hours, minimum wage, etc, etc.

I don't understand how that works legally.  My city literally can't afford to pay for police and fire, yet they're not legally allowed to lower their wages or even stop increasing their pay. 

The employer has no say in the employees wages.

How the hell does that work?

You want to take  a huge step towards "socialism" try and break the union. If it were to work you'd see lower wages across the board both union and non-union...

Usually how it works is the city negotiates a contract with the employees.. then the city blows their money on other things that don't pan out... then the employees are made out to be the bad guys... that's how it usually works..

I'm doing some research, that makes sense.  

Dumb bastard city shouldn't have agreed to this kind of bullshit.  Probably happened in the 90's when all these fuckers were going nuts.

If that is how it went down, they should definitely have to honor the agreement.

Papa John's CEO John Schnatter: Obamacare likely to raise costs, employee's hours to be cut
•By: Jessica Lipscomb, naplesnews.com

Just after Barack Obama earned a second term in the White House, Papa John's founder and CEO John Schnatter said the president's signature health-care reform law would increase his business costs and possibly result in employees' hours being cut.

Schnatter, a part-time Naples, Fla., resident, made the comments Wednesday night inside a small auditorium at Edison State College's Collier County campus. In August, he made national headlines after telling shareholders the Affordable Care Act -- commonly known as Obamacare -- would result in a 10- to 14-cent increase for customers buying a pizza.

"I got in a bunch of trouble for this," he told the students. "That's what you do, is you pass on costs. Unfortunately, I don't think people know what they're going to pay for this."

Schnatter, a Mitt Romney supporter and fundraiser, said he was not "pro or against" the reform law but likened the government's involvement in health care to its operation of the U.S. Postal Service, saying "the worst entity in the world for running the thing is the government."

About a third of Papa John's employees are covered by the company's health insurance plan, although Schnatter said he has always wanted 100 percent of them on the plan. The rising costs of health insurance, he said, have been a deterrent.

"The good news is 100 percent of the population is going to have health insurance. We're all going to pay for it," he said, estimating the new law would cost the business $5 million to $8 million annually.

Under the Affordable Care Act, full-time employees -- those working 30 hours or more per week -- would have to be provided with insurance at companies with more than 50 workers. Schnatter said it was likely that some franchise owners would reduce employees' hours in order to avoid having to cover them.

"That's probably what's going to happen," he said. "It's common sense. That's what I call lose-lose."

Other than his comments on health care, Schnatter largely steered clear of politics. The 50-year-old said future entrepreneurs need to marry talent and passion in their endeavors, his being business-savvy and a love of pizza.

"I don't consider this work," he said. "I wake up thinking about Papa John's and I go to bed thinking about Papa John's."

He credited the business' success to having a strong team of people and a quality product, repeating his commercial's catchphrase -- "Better ingredients, better pizza, Papa John's" -- several times.

Schnatter answered questions for about 45 minutes before leaving to participate in a telethon with the University of Kentucky basketball team to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims. He told students he hopes to present the American Red Cross with a $1 million check.

Las Vegas CEO Reportedly Fired 22 Workers Because Of Obama's Reelection
Posted: 11/08/2012 1:05 pm EST Updated: 11/08/2012 1:49 pm EST

One Las Vegas CEO reportedly had an extreme reaction to President Obama's reelection.

“David,” whose full name and company have yet to be disclosed, told radio host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that he fired 22 of his 114 employees as a direct result of Obama’s win, arguing that “elections have consequences” and that he needs “to survive.” “David” refused to identify himself for “obvious reasons,” according to the radio station.

“I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come,” the CEO said. “I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way.”

"David's" identity and his story have yet to be verified, but if it's true, the CEO would be among the first, if not the first outright, to fire workers as a direct result of Obama's reelection, a threat made many times before the presidential election. The new political push by employers was the result of both the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, which made such declarations legal, and a June conference call in which Mitt Romney urged employers to tell their workers how they voted.

The company head, who described his workers as “mostly Hispanic,” said that he warned them about a month ago that if Obama won reelection, provisions like Obamacare and extra payroll taxes would force him to make certain considerations in order to keep his business running. Instead of firing workers, other companies, like Papa John's, said they would pass on the costs of Obamacare to consumers.

“David” is one of many CEOs that warned employees of consequences if Obama won reelection. Billionaire and Westgate Resort head David Siegel emailed a memo to his employees in the lead up to the election warning them to vote for Romney or else. But in the wake of Obama’s win, Siegel is saying that he gave all of his employees raises.

Some companies, like Wynn resorts, went even further by giving their employees voter guides. Peter Bos, CEO of real estate developer Legendary Inc., attached his filled-out election ballot, which included a vote for Romney, to his employees paychecks.

Group turns to social media to rally support for Papa John's amid liberal backlash
Published November 12, 2012
FoxNews.com

Daniel Wetter is just 16 years old, but his plan to support pizza chain Papa John’s amid a backlash of liberal criticism is no pie-in-the-sky idea.

Wetter is part of an upstart group called Rebooting America that is proposing that Friday be a national day of appreciation for the pizza chain, whose chief executive officer is being attacked for saying employees’ hours might be cut to cover the cost of implementing their health insurance under ObamaCare.

The conservative group has hatched a social media-based campaign that centers on encouraging people to buy a pizza pie at a Papa John’s store, taking a photo of the outing and then posting it on a Facebook page or tweeting it.

“We just wanted to stand with Papa John’s because it is under attack,” said Wetter, who volunteered with Mitt Romney's campaign and credits fellow conservative activist Justen Charters with coming up with the idea.

Wetter said Monday the Facebook appreciation page went up Sunday night and almost immediately got 1,000 supporters.

Papa John's founder and CEO John H. Schnatter said after Election Day that franchise owners might have to cut hours because the health care law requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide insurance for those working at least 30 hours.  He also estimated the law will cost the company $5 million to $8 million more annually.

Other companies, such as Olive Garden and Applebee’s, also have faced criticism and threats of boycotts for voicing similar concerns.

Supporters of the Affordable Care Act more recently pounced on comments by New York-area Applebee's franchisee Zane Tankel, who told Fox Business that cost increases related to implementing ObamaCare might force a halt to expansion and additional hiring. Critics appear to have interpreted Tankel’s comments to mean he will lay off employees as a result of the changes.

Wetter said he hopes the activism will move beyond the appreciation day for Papa John's.

“This is not just about Friday or one group,” said Wetter, adding he already was a fan of Papa John’s. “I just had some pizza yesterday, and I’m going to have some more Friday.”

The other elements of the plan call for supporters to “like" Papa John's Facebook page and buy an extra pizza Friday “to share with someone that is struggling right now,” such as a neighbor who lost a job.

Florida restaurateur to impose surcharge for ObamaCare
By Joshua Rhett Miller
Published November 15, 2012
FoxNews.com

A Florida restaurateur who operates roughly 40 Denny’s locations and five Hurricane Grill & Wings franchises in Florida, Virginia and Georgia intends to add a 5 percent surcharge to customers’ bills to offset costs from ObamaCare beginning in January 2014 when the Affordable Care Act is fully implemented.

“People are trying to find ways to avoid the penalties and to avoid having to pay for ObamaCare,” John Metz told FoxNews.com. “Everyone’s looking for a way to not have to provide insurance for their employees. It’s essentially a huge tax on all us business people.”

To further offset the costs, Metz, who oversees roughly 1,200 employees as president and CEO of RREMC Restaurants, LLC, said he also will slash most of the staff's time to fewer than 30 hours per week. That change will be announced to employees next month, he said.

“I want to explain it to everybody, to let them know what’s coming down the pike,” he said. “We like to keep our employees informed.”

The changes will force some front-of-the-house employees to look for second jobs, Metz said, but he simply cannot afford the penalties associated with ObamaCare.

“I have a choice: try to live within the rules, or go out of business.”
- John Metz, Florida restaurateur

“It’s a great concept,” he said. “We want to have everyone insured. The problem is, who is going to pay for it and how are we going to accomplish this?”

Under the current law, employers with more than 50 full-time (or equivalent) workers will be charged a penalty for the number of employees exceeding 30 full-time staffers who are not covered. With an average of 35 full-time employees per location, Metz said the $2,000 penalty would total roughly $70,000 per restaurant. Current coverage costs Metz up to $6,000 annually per full-time employee, he said. He currently provides coverage to about 250 employees.

“It’s going to be a big issue for all of us — for my employees and for me,” said Metz, who has been in the industry since 1975. “The ones that are working more than 28 hours, they’re going to act as if I’m cutting their hours and they’ll have to find another job.”

At Denny’s restaurants operated by Metz, the average check is $9, he said, meaning the ObamaCare surcharge if implemented would be 45 cents on that bill. At Hurricane Grill & Wings locations, where the average bill is $14.50, the surcharge would total 72 cents.

Metz said he believes the entire restaurant industry — even high-end locations — will ultimately embrace the idea.

“That is what I foresee and that is the easier, least painful way to deal with these added costs,” he said. “In a true playing field, everybody will impose this, from McDonald’s to Denny’s to even maybe the fine dining restaurants in order to have the funds to be able to pay for either insurance or the penalty for not providing insurance to their employees.”

Metz also is urging his employees to consider contacting their local elected officials in hopes of finding another solution to offset his looming increased costs.

“It’s never good news, but it is what it is,” Metz said of increasing customers’ checks. “We really should look for a better or different way to pay for [ObamaCare]. I think what we’re going to ultimately see here is a European-type system where we have a value added tax or a national sales tax.”

Metz continued: “I have a choice: try to live within the rules, or go out of business.”

In a statement to FoxNews.com, the National Restaurant Association said it’s “premature” to assess precisely how the health care law will affect individual businesses.

“We have warned for some time that the mechanics of the health care law are very difficult for the restaurant industry, which is a low-margin industry that works to keep costs down in order to provide value to customers,” said Scott DeFife, executive vice president of policy and government affairs for the National Restaurant Association. “All costs, from gas and commodities to labor and insurance, eventually impact the price on the menu. It is important that operators get very familiar with the provisions of the law and start planning for its implementation; however, it’s premature to make a specific assessment of exactly how the law will affect any individual business because there are so many details that are unknown.”

i think 100k per year - to pick up trash all day - might actually be worth it.

physically intense work in very tough/smelly circumstances.

It isn't physically intense work, not for the most part.

More places have a driver and a passenger that drive a garbage truck that has it's own arm that picks up special garbage cans and dumps them into the truck. The 2nd garbageman is there for larger things or to help at times.

Just after Barack Obama earned a second term in the White House, Papa John's founder and CEO John Schnatter said the president's signature health-care reform law would increase his business costs and possibly result in employees' hours being cut.

Schnatter, a part-time Naples, Fla., resident, made the comments Wednesday night inside a small auditorium at Edison State College's Collier County campus. In August, he made national headlines after telling shareholders the Affordable Care Act -- commonly known as Obamacare -- would result in a 10- to 14-cent increase for customers buying a pizza.

"I got in a bunch of trouble for this," he told the students. "That's what you do, is you pass on costs. Unfortunately, I don't think people know what they're going to pay for this."

Schnatter, a Mitt Romney supporter and fundraiser, said he was not "pro or against" the reform law but likened the government's involvement in health care to its operation of the U.S. Postal Service, saying "the worst entity in the world for running the thing is the government."

About a third of Papa John's employees are covered by the company's health insurance plan, although Schnatter said he has always wanted 100 percent of them on the plan. The rising costs of health insurance, he said, have been a deterrent.

"The good news is 100 percent of the population is going to have health insurance. We're all going to pay for it," he said, estimating the new law would cost the business $5 million to $8 million annually.

Under the Affordable Care Act, full-time employees -- those working 30 hours or more per week -- would have to be provided with insurance at companies with more than 50 workers. Schnatter said it was likely that some franchise owners would reduce employees' hours in order to avoid having to cover them.

"That's probably what's going to happen," he said. "It's common sense. That's what I call lose-lose."

Other than his comments on health care, Schnatter largely steered clear of politics. The 50-year-old said future entrepreneurs need to marry talent and passion in their endeavors, his being business-savvy and a love of pizza.

"I don't consider this work," he said. "I wake up thinking about Papa John's and I go to bed thinking about Papa John's."

He credited the business' success to having a strong team of people and a quality product, repeating his commercial's catchphrase -- "Better ingredients, better pizza, Papa John's" -- several times.

Schnatter answered questions for about 45 minutes before leaving to participate in a telethon with the University of Kentucky basketball team to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims. He told students he hopes to present the American Red Cross with a $1 million check.
