Screw their medieval beliefs and force them to provide proper coverage to female employees. Good to know this company is run by scum so it can be avoided by friends and family!

Hahahahaha, I love how pro"choicers" claim to support choice-right up until someone chooses something that they don't like.

Any company that will not provide coverage that the majority of women want needs to move over and let more enlightened companies move to the forfront. This issue is not for them to decide, it is the employee's decision. And pro-choice means that the individual has a choice.

Employees don't get to choose their own benefits packages. They are at the company's discretion.

When you apply for your first job, take a list of your demands for benefits, demand them at the interview and see how that goes.

I have worked at Hobby Lobby for a couple of years now and most of the employees in the Store are female and really support the company and understand what part of birth control and what part hobby lobby does not want to provide in their plan. Keep in mind a full time employee is paid 14.00 dollars a hour straight across the company and part time and temporary are paid 9.50 a hour how many retail companies do that. It's a great company a lot more could learn from the values set by this organization

Obama makes up laws as he goes along and the stupid senate goes with him. What happens if he decides red meat isn't good for your heart and everyone should eat pork. Do you think the Supreme Court will be filled with J978ews and Muslims challenges.

The salaries and benefits at Hobby Lobby are much better than average.

Michelle Malkin writes: "The company donates more than 10 percent of its income every year to charity. All stores are closed on Sundays to allow employees more family and worship time. It's the company's dedication to biblical principles that led Hobby Lobby in April to raise full-time employees' starting minimum wage to $14 an hour at a time when many other firms have been forced to slash both wages and benefits."

And what pro-aborts probably don't know (or wouldn't tell you if they had happened to do a little research): Hobby Lobby's company health insurance plan covers 16 of the 20 FDA-approved contraceptives required under the Obamacare mandate -- at no additional costs to employees.

Malkin writes: "...Planned Parenthood femme-a-gogues, Senate Democratic leaders, Christian-bashing celebs and atheist bullies immediately attacked Hobby Lobby for "denying women access to birth control." The lies and religious persecution, especially on the eve of America's national holiday commemorating the pilgrims' escape thereof, are unconscionable. Hobby Lobby's company health insurance plan covers 16 of the 20 FDA-approved contraceptives required under the Obamacare mandate -- at no additional costs to employees. What Hobby Lobby refuses to do is to be forced to cover abortifacients that violate the owners' faith and conscience.

"Every employee is aware of the founders' history, devout work ethic and faith. No one is forced to work at Hobby Lobby. If workers want birth control, they can pay for it themselves.(And unlike so many other service workers, they have more take-home pay to spend on the "preventive services" of their choice.)"
