Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Pro-Freedom: Company Pays Bonuses to Employees That Start Families
While some companies cover expenses for employees to have abortions, one company is making waves by incentivizing employees to have children and start families.
In a unique move to promote family values, PublicSq, an online marketplace consolidating “values-aligned businesses,” has announced a new policy offering “baby bonuses” to its employees. The company’s founder and CEO, Michael Seifert, recently revealed that employees would receive a $5,000 bonus for having a baby or adopting a child.
PublicSq’s website describes the company as “Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Pro-Freedom,” and boasts of being the “largest network of patriot-owned businesses.” According to Seifert, the company’s mission is to provide consumers with high-quality alternatives to “woke corporations.”
The new policy comes in response to recent news of companies offering to cover travel expenses for employees seeking abortions in states where the procedure is illegal, such as Texas. Seifert took to Twitter to express his views, stating, “While some companies in America pay their employees to kill their unborn children, we pay ours to have as many babies as possible.”
In a recent interview with Fox & Friends Weekend, Seifert revealed that three pregnancies have been announced among staff within the last month. He emphasized the importance of family in the success of a company, stating, “Ultimately, a company is only as strong as the families that built it.”
The policy announcement follows the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which saw several corporations declare they would cover travel expenses for employees living in states where abortions are banned. Companies like Amazon and Target have pledged to reimburse up to $4,000 in travel expenses and expanded healthcare travel reimbursement to include abortions.
Seifert, however, sees PublicSq’s policy as a counter-narrative to these practices. “We wanted to sing an opposite tune and actually … put $5,000 behind any of our employees that were to have a baby, their spouse’s have a baby, or they were to adopt,” he told Fox.
He also criticized companies offering travel reimbursements for abortions, accusing them of pretending to care about women’s healthcare. “At the end of the day, they just don’t want to pay maternity leave,” Seifert said. “They are more afraid of losing the monetary value that their employees provide, so they would rather choose that than they would to empower the growth of these families.”
People shouldn’t be slaves to the workplace. That’s what woke corporations attempt to do by covering abortion costs for their staff.
