    • In an internal Hobby Lobby memo obtained by Business Insider, the company told managers that sick employees must use personal paid time off and vacation pay or take an “unpaid leave of absence until further notice.”
    • In the case of mandated store closures, the memo said employees will be eligible for emergency pay only after paid time off and vacation days have been depleted, at which point they will receive 75% of their regular rate of pay based on an average of shifts from the previous six weeks.
    • “The district manager has said that our stores will remain open until the National Guard comes in and physically shuts the buildings down,” a Hobby Lobby manager told Business Insider.

    It's a chain of hobby and craft supply stores. It's the same outfit that went to court over the Obamacare requirement that employee health insurance plans pay for birth control.

    Unfortunately, it's beginning to sound like the Corona virus is becoming another hot-button political issue for the Christian Right.

    The Christian Right might solve the separation of church and state for us.

    Didn't you know a craft and hobby store is an "essential business" during a pandemic?

    I kind of agree. Just like the Cannabis shops in CO. Stay at home "activity" providers.

    If anybody wants an interesting, refreshing counterpoint to the Hobby Lobby story, here's a story about how HEB, a regional grocery chain in Texas, has been developing their disaster response plans and infrastructure for several years:

    Ugh, not having the employees backs at all. Typical greedy corporation mentality.

    It was essential to GameStop to not have to mail those preorder copies of Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing people were suppose to be picking up in store. Afterall UPS is expensive and they weren't doing well before this.
