Hobby Lobby Raises Minimum Wage to $14

Hobby Lobby CEO David Green is committed to trying to run his business the way Jesus might have.

After a massive victory for religious freedom at the Supreme Court on Monday, Christian-owned arts and crafts giant Hobby Lobby has announced that its minimum wage for full-time hourly workers will be raised to $14.50 per hour.

Effective immediately, the announcement also entails that part-time hourly workers receive $9.50 per hour.

Given the track record of Green's retail chain, the wage increase is not incredibly dramatic. In 2012, the retailer was already paying full-time employees $13 per hour while part-timers earned $9. ...

I'm all for working people making as much as they can but these are not the jobs that will give us any kind of future,we need a return of the heavy industry and manufacturing jobs that our government so graciously gave away years ago in the so called "free trade" agreements which decalred open season on the American worker that actually produced something of value....store clerks and cashier jobs are not going to return us to prosperity

Strat, I don't think people should work 7 days a week, in fact I think they should get Saturday off too, which of course is the Sabbath, Legalism is Shadow, Christ is Substance, Christians do have Freedom from the Mosaic Law.

Apparently Hobby Lobby, doesn't locate in Jewish or Seventh Day Adventist neighborhoods?

But as far as minimum wages go, even towns have boosted them, and there's a plan to to put a boost in minimum wages on the Nebraska November ballot.

I have no doubt that much of the considerate behavior of Hobby Lobby's consideration comes from the Christian background of the Green family, I assume much of the consideration of the Koch brothers towards their employees comes from the works salvation of Catholicism -- I guess something is better than nothing -- as far as their Christian employees would consider it. Some employers were as decent as they could be to their employees no matter what their religious background, which is more common when the owner has more contact with the employees, rather than being distant from them.

It is always good to read good news about Hobby Lobby, though the local media is focused on the 'setback in woman's contraceptive rights' that they see the Supreme Court ruling in HL's favor.

If you haven't read the short book by HL's President David Green, I highly recommend it. In it I found out they are very-employee friendly, even closing their stores early (8:00pm)and closing on Sundays so their employees can 'have a life.'

I remember either a history or history/business class, I had so many, many years ago, that businesses which owners have contact with employees usually treated them better than large corporations which look on employees as part of the machinery. Now, Hobby Lobby isn't that small, but the Green family takes note of it's employees.

I have often spoke of the Koch brothers, yeah those brothers, How to Vote Against the Koch Brothers, but they seem to treat their employees fairly well. Even though some people in Wichita, consider them something of benevolent dictators.

Anyway, it's good to know that I had some ideas taught in my years of secular education, proved somewhat correct.
