Just because the owner of Hobby Lobby is a billionaire, as you say, that doesn't mean that the owners should keep paying someone indefinitely. I do think that it is a terrible shame for so many people to lose their jobs and/or have reduced hours. This has happened in my direct family. I do understand your concern, but really try to do research on other websites that do not have leftist agendas. The websites that I have visited all report this in a different way. They talk about the supportive way that the Green family talks to the employees and what they have tried to do in order to pay them at least for a while. What we have now in this wonderful country of ours, is a terrible situation that it hitting us all directly in many ways. Many other businesses are having the exact same issues with regard to letting people go, etc. And I agree, it is terrible. I have tried repeatedly to get onto the PopCulture website to finish reading the article. The headline alone is very telling as to their agenda. We all read into things in the manner that we want to. I will see something as positive because of my personal beliefs and faith. Others may see something negative because that is how they view a company like Hobby Lobby, anyway. Hobby Lobby is no stranger to controversy and we all know that. The Green family is a very strong faith based family and they live out what they believe. Because some people don't like that, it doesn't matter. We live in a free country where we are still allowed to run our businesses as we see fit. It is not for the government to step in and shut businesses down because they don't like the owners beliefs. If you will notice, many of the Hobby Lobby stores were already closed, but a portion of them remained open in areas where there were few cases of the Covid-19 virus. Our area had a few Hobby Lobby stores open, but they are now closed.
I have included just one of the articles that I read, that shows the Hobby Lobby controversy in another way.
I really do care about all of you and we all are welcome to our beliefs. I do think that we shouldn't castigate a person or company because we don't like them. It is just not the right thing to do.
Blessings to all of you and please do stay well and healthy. By the way, I have absolutely no connection to Hobby Lobby or any of the owners.
