    This SCOTUS is going back to the days before the New Deal, where the contract is sacred and government has no power to interfere.  Minimum wage laws, 40 hour work weeks, all the other restrictions prohibiting a willing employer and supposedly willing worker from cutting a deal are suspect.

    They view the Hobby Lobby case as the government refusing to let Hobby Lobby hire workers who are willing to put up with their second-rate health plan.

    So, no - Hobby Lobby couldn't refuse to pay you if they think you will spend the pay on sin.  They already have a contract with you.

    They can fire you  afterwards, but that's true today.
