Or, maybe he'll continue to play by the rules that you and I voted for. And maybe he'll use the higher market capitalization of PZZA as currency to open new stores and/or enter into new business lines to employ more Americans. Just sayin'.
FWIW John and I both slung delicious pies as teenagers at the old Rocky's over thirty years ago. We didn't get a healthcare package and we turned out fine. He's not offering his employees a better or worse deal than he had at the time.
In the off chance that anyone is interested, I support full, universal healthcare similar to several models employed in Europe which, despite the silly notions of most American lefties, is a gigantic tax on the rich. I pay $20K a year for "free" healthcare.... but I'm OK with that. Don't get me started on the other outrageous taxes I pay over here. I also support a sliding scale, age based minimum wage such as is employed in the Netherlands. Teens still in school living with their parents get much less but once they're older the payscale and bennies move higher. I think it's a very sensible regime.
