Re: HOBBY LOBBY MAY CLOSE ITS DOORS - Thank you Obamacare Idiots !!!!!!
Let me get this straight. First of all they are self-insured. That choice puts them under the regulation regarding insurance companies. If I remember correctly, their problem was the government was saying they had to cover birth control as an insurance company. They claim it goes against their Christian beliefs.
So instead of switching their model and buying outside insurance, they decide to go out of business?

The fact that they have to cover birth control is going to put them out of business?

LOL, if that is the case, they have other problems. And they are just happy to blame their demise on the government.
Give me a break.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2021744


The cost of the birth control wasn't the problem. The problem is that paying for ABORTIONS is against their ethics, and the "after morning" pill is an ABORTION pill. Stop twisting the facts !! Their standing up for a PRINCIPLE - do you have any principles that YOU would stand firm on ?

they are so stupid, just provide the abortion pill.

Poverty is death, they will be killing all their christian employees if they go out of business.

They could still go years before they even have one single case where an employee asks them to pay for their abortion pill, and there's a million ways they could circumvent the silly law.

The devil will send a tool to ask for abortion pill coverage, just give it to the devil, to abort her devil baby, don't fall for this trick.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 766909


I don't believe that anybody said that their employees were Christian ????? Where did that come from ?

LOL If their employees were all Christian, then there wouldn't be an issue. ROTFLMAO - BECAUASE CHRISTIANS DON'T BELIEVE IN ABORTION !!!

Good the place sucks
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19156676

Do you realize the number of people that will lose their jobs over this? We are not only talking the store's employees, but the manufacturing workers, warehouse personnel, truckers and everyone else in Hobby Lobby's supply chain?
Now what if this puts some of those business to the point of closing their doors?
This creates a Domino effect of business closures and unemployment.
So regardless of your feelings for the business ethics or moral stand, it's closing hurts all of us.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34819344


Exactly the point !! When I first posted that letter, that was my main concern - HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD BECOME UNEMPLOYED !!! But it sure got sidetracked into a religious thing. IT'S ABOUT THE ECONOMY and what Obamacare is doing to it !!!

Re: HOBBY LOBBY MAY CLOSE ITS DOORS - Thank you Obamacare Idiots !!!!!!
Yeah, well their "Christian principles" apparently haven't filtered down to their management in the stores. My brother was working part time at another store and answered an ad from Hobby Lobby for employment opportunities. They were opening a new store. My brother was one of 64 out of 1400 people selected to help them get the store ready to open. They told these employees that if they displayed excellent skills, worked hard, they would be hired once the store opened. And this was back-breaking work, building shelves, hefting 300 pound displays around, etc. These people all killed themselves.

So the day comes when the store is set up and those who are being hired permanently are to be called to the office to be informed. My brother overhears the store mgr talking to an asst mgr, saying, "when should we drop the bomb on these people?". They weren't hiring any of them, never intended to hire any of them. They told them that to get them to work extra hard to get the store set up, they were bringing in employees from other stores for the perm jobs.

Many of these people, my brother included, gave up other paying work to get a shot at these jobs. He hasn't been able to find anything since that. I hope they DO close their GD stores. Lying fucking POS's. Christian principles include lying and screwing with people's lives? Buy the abortion pills and stfu you hypocrites!

This is a tragedy. A lot of people will be out of work and for what? As the letter says, all the cronies have been exempted from this "trainwreck" but no exemption will be made for Hobby Lobby.

And all because the executives and CEO can't bear to give up any of that profit.

They can let the worker bees starve, be sick or go on unemployment, but heaven forfend that the 1% in the company have to suffer the potential loss of speed boat or private island.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1067996


Did you even read the OP? They've been starting their employees at $13.00 to $14.00 and hour for the last couple of years! Compare that to one of their competitors (whom I used to work for) who started people about 42 cents above minimum wage.

They're one of the few companies that actually do seem to care about their employees. Granted, it's retail, and nobody's going to get rich working for them, but that isn't the point.

But you sound like a retarded liberal so why am I bothering?

That is sad.

Hobby Lobby is a very unique store and has so much available to a wide variety of interests.

I hope they can get the support they need and win in court, but with this administration it is going to be impossible.

Never the less, i will pass along this article.

This adminsitration is without a doubt - evil.

For those of you lusting after jobs at Hobby lobby and dominos, the only way they can employ you is to underpay you and not pay for healthcare. Are you sure you want those jobs? Also, how viable a business model are they working with if these big-time wanna-be franchises cant even make a profit paying employees a living wage? They should move to Bangledesh.

Knowing nothing a thing about their books, without a scintilla of knowledge regarding what their current employee benefits, and probably little to no business experience (certainly business ownership) on your part, you open your fucking mouth and prove to all here what an uneducated, anti-business pro-socialist asshole you really are.
