Patagonia Will Bail Out Employees Arrested in Abortion Protests

quote:

Patagonia Inc. said it would provide bail for employees who are arrested while protesting after the US Supreme Court eliminated the constitutional right to abortion.

The benefit covers full- and part-time workers who “peacefully protest for reproductive justice,” the outdoor apparel company told employees Friday. It also pledged to pay for travel, lodging and food for staff on its health-care plans who need to seek abortion procedures.

Patagonia joins a growing list of US corporations that have committed to cover expenses for workers who live in states with restricted access to abortion care. The company said it’s the responsibility of businesses to offer staff “the dignity of access to reproductive health care.”
quote:

“It means supporting employees’ choices around if or when they have a child,” the company said. “It means giving parents the resources they need to work and raise children.”

Patagonia, known for its activism across a variety of social and environmental issues, encourages employees to get involved in causes, provides protest training and gives workers time off to vote at each election. The company has long offered to post bail for staff arrested in peaceful demonstrations.

The only payroll with militant protestors belongs to George Soros.

Why isn't this considered inciting criminal activity?

I need a “Amazon” type company that only provides goods from conservative Christian companies. I also need a list of all companies to boycott.

Is only a suspicion. But are these corporations getting paid to support this destruction? How many companies are pushing issues which cost them profits. A company cant find workers but fires unvaxed? Some with stocks tanking and layoffs but still push? Is it funding terrorism?

Why do they need this “bail out coverage” if it “covers” protesters who peacefully protest?

LOL, stupid Hippie company can afford to do this, as all their customers are high-earning granola eaters.

Hmmmmmm....

Difficult to take anything written after this as serious

It was never a right, and it's certainly not in the Constitution

Same. Have a hard time reconciling it. I will try to avoid buying new gear. But I’m not going to toss the old out.

Maybe put a piece of tape on top of the name.

How many peaceful protestors will be arrested in Dem controlled cities?

Stupid virtue signaling.
