They must have read all the negative comments about them (and Cheesecake Factory) on HuffPo yesterday.

We were going to go to Red Lovster the week that story broke. We had Indian instead. I've not set foot inside any of their restaurants since.

Sadly the RWNJs react to these stories by saying that THEY will never eat again at these chains that offer their employees health benefits.

Yeah I know it doesn't make sense, but I read exactly that reaction over at PJMedia when Papa John's went into damage control mode.

At my job we play Secret Santa and everyone participating requests a gift that costs no more than $20. The person I pick requested a gift certificate to Red Lobster or Olive Garden. I can't tell you how much it hurt me to buy that gift certificate given my political feelings, but I didn't want to be an asshole to my co-worker. Hell I didn't spend money at these places before the owners revealed themselves to be jerks who would screw their workers to screw the President.

I told my better half that Olive Garden was off limits. I also responded to a JC Penney poll and told them I would no longer shop there because of their CEO compensation and their doing away with commission pay.

I am definitely more careful with my money since the wingnuts came out swinging. I have been doing a lot less shopping and eating out. There is a genuine disrespect towards workers. These fast food owners act like they fucking cured cancer or something. Skeevy dirtbags.

They are all-powerful Job Creators, and deserve nothing less than your worship. Who are you to question the Gods of Capitalism?///

I have never eaten at a Red Lobster or an Olive Garden. I have seen their ads on TV where they display the kinds of different foods that they serve. It all looks completely gross!
