There seems to be a new push to establish the employer’s right as to how the employee spends what they earn. I feel this is very dangerous, in AZ the state government is considering allowing employers to ask why do you need contraception and fire you if they don’t like the answer. When did we start saying that the employee doesn’t earn their benefits? Since when was it the employer that is “buying” the heath coverage, what is it a gift?
