Question

Papa John's, a leading family style pizza restaurant chain, decided they would cut full-time employees in order to preserve profits at the restaurant chain. The owner felt that the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) mandatory insurance requirements for organizations that employ over 50 people would cost the organization too much money and reduce profits.

Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, read the article “Picking on Papa John's” and further your research on the Papa John’s stance on Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Based on your research and understanding, answer the following questions:

    Do you believe that the Papa John's CEO's behavior was ethical or unethical? Why?
    Should the public have taken more of a stance against his actions? If so, what action(s) could the public have taken? If not, give reasons why the public should not involve itself in such situations.
    Should the government have taken any action in this situation, given that the CEO was making a point against legislation it had introduced? If so, explain the action that you believe the government should have taken. If not, explain why you do not believe any government action is justified
