"...Rohr was offered to be reinstated by the franchisee, Franchise Management Inc., of Canada, which operates all of the Elkhart stores. According to numerous media reports, Rohr is still considering the offer..."

To me at this time what I've highlighted is the real story, not rehashed debate over whether they should have been open. For anyone that drove anywhere Thursday one could easily have seen many other businesses, food service and other open; why not great debate about them also?

To read Rohr is still considering his options over the uproar he created, implies he's exploiting this event for every opportunity he can take advantage of. Why not ask him if he's not being 'Greedy' over what has transpired? That'd be a story............

I remain mystified at how many people throw the company under the bus yet none own businesses and have taken risk and employ other people.  Without looking at the balance sheet what if Pizza Hut E. Jackson location needed a big month to break even or be forced to close the doors.  We would be all over the company for creating the newly unemployed.  Yet we don't seem to see the irony of staying open based on demand to gain profits and keep/expand employment for local people.  I don't care that the franchise owner is from Canada, who stepped up locally to buy a franchise?  Open on Thanksgiving???  An estimated 33 million Americans shopped on Thanksgiving day!  This is not ground breaking.  If you don't like it don't shop..I didn't  go but no one missed me either.  Allow a company to do what it must to remain profitable and keep others employed or otherwise if the profits go away so does the employment.  Like Walmart, if you don't like the wage train for something else or go to the many places that have help wanted signs in their yards.  Do what you obligate your employers to do, be marketable, generate a profit, be worthy of the raise and the advancement.  Need extra money, work the Holiday.  Don't demonize the corporations that provide the jobs and profit is not a bad word, neither is a savings account or emergency fund.  Balance it with family time and you obtained the American Dream.

Really?

First of all, he didn't make the issue go national. And I doubt he knew what would happen when it did. Why do you assume that he's being greedy? Maybe he just doesn't want to remain with a company that hasn't changed it's mind because of a change in principle, but because of public opinion. Who are you to question his motives?

It is far too clear that the only greedy one is the company and the local owner. 
There are countless number of Pizza Huts around the country that were NOT open on Thanksgiving.  And the Greed here is indeed consumed by the franchise owner.  He/she obviously feared that he might loose a buck.  To imply that had it not been open may have caused a total shutdown and loss of jobs of many is just hogwash.  If that indeed was the case, then the shutdown is bound to happen whether or not it was open on Thanksgiving.  Few people dine out on Thanksgiving and those who do, Pizza is just not on their menu selection.

Mr. Rohr has a lot to consider.  First he might get his job back, but he could be fired the next day for almost anything that the franchise owner might think up.  Drop a dish and break it and it is for destroying company property.  In Indiana it is employment at the will of the employer.  The employer does NOT need any reason to fire anyone - unless there is a union under contract with such provision written in to counter this abuse of power.  But no thanks to the GOP who work endlessly to make such firing even easier and their concerted effort to oppose decent living standards in favor of for more greed and 6 and 7 figure CEO salaries.

Looks like somebody didn't get their meat lovers delivered over the holiday. Oh well, maybe Pizza Hut will do an episode of Undercover boss and we'll find out they aren't greedy family hating scumbags after all. They only behave as such.

So say your speculative guess is correct; how difficult would it be for him to willingly state he has no desire to return with the same fanfare presented as with his grievances?

I agree he didn't make this issue go national, that was just pure luck. He did facilitate the story making local news.

Is it fair to say you apparently believe it deplorable for a business owner to take advantage of opportunity to benefit as in their original desire to open Thanksgiving; yet would find it commendable if Rohr were to be currently holding out with answer as an act of opportunity?

Why would you criticize and not desire the follow up question I presented for this to be a true reported story?

 A Canadian owned franchise has nothing to do with the GOP. The fact that Canada is not part of the US with their own holiday schedules. I wonder when they observe Canadas holidays do American workers get that day off?

  As far as other fast food joints are concerned that were open that was the decision of management. Mr.Rohr took into consideration of the employees that wanted to be with their families during the holiday. Would the Canadians recognize their holiday if they have one like ours?

  It is the decision of the company to be open or closed during a national holiday. If the owners are Americans would they be home with their families during the holiday? Probably,and if so why would they ask their employees to sacrifice something that they aren't willing to do themselves?
