The Morning After at Hobby Lobby

7/2/2014, 48hills

We don’t know yet what all the implications of the Hobby Lobby case will be (here’s onehelpful analysis of some of the many ways the ruling is deeply troubling), but the immediate result is that Hobby Lobby, a chain of 572 craft stores with about 13,000 employees, will not be required to provide its workers, nearly 70% of whom are women, with health insurance that covers certain forms of contraception. So yesterday morning, after waking up with the kind of hangover I associate with feelings of revulsion and rage, I decided to see if I could speak with some Hobby Lobby workers about the decision.
