From Conservative Tribune: Hobby Lobby, the “evil corporation” leftists love to hate is now “forcing” something else on their employees, and it’s leaving liberals speechless. The company has raised the minimum wage for workers.
The craft store giant is now paying its employees $14 an hour, which is almost double the average minimum wage in the country. For part time employees, the minimum wage is $9.50, which is impressive.
The Universal Free Press is reporting that Hobby Lobby CEO David Green, speaking on the new wage increase, said “We are very fortunate to be able to increase hourly wages for our employees, because we know our company would not be successful without the great work they do each day in our stores across the nation.”
Liberals are no doubt feeling pretty embarrassed to see this company doing so well and rewarding its employees, raising the minimum wage without needing the government thanks to their success in the free market. What a novel concept!
