Pizza Boss Blocks Birth Control

Mar 18, 2013

The boss who controls your life at work now wants to control your night life at home!

The founder of Domino’s Pizza, Tom Monaghan, just got a judge to allow him to disobey federal law and NOT cover birth control for his several dozen employees at his new company, Domino’s Farms.

This judge had the audacity to agree that Monaghan doesn’t have to cover birth control because his “freedom to exercise religion” is protected under the First Amendment.

In other words, this judge says it’s perfectly legal for bosses to force their personal – in this case Catholic – religious views onto their workers.

Corporations own us at work. Now the most reactionary political forces of this society want corporations to own our personal lives, too!
