Is it not actually just not offering them for free?

What is stopping any employee getting this themselves? Nothing.

It's a lifestyle drug.

It would also be somewhat unfair on the other people, who would have to make do with less pay, because of this.

I didn't realize having sex was a 'lifestyle'.

Having unprotected sex with multiple, largely unknown partners is very much a life style choice.

Trying to reduce it down, to "having sex is a lifestyle choice" is deliberately ignorant.

Surprised you didn't go for the "are you saying being gay is a lifestyle choice"

I'm not being obtuse in anyway.

A higher level of insurance, the kind that pays for people to take voluntary medication, that is not taken to treat a specific condition or alleviate active medical symptoms is obviously going to cost more money.

This will need to be offered to every employee (because otherwise it's discrimination and or favouritism) which means it's going to affect workers wages.

Nothing obtuse.

Sure is odd that you'd come to f/worker to announce that us workers don't deserve to be insured by our bosses because 'having sex is a lifestyle choice'. Almost like you're some kind of troll! Perish the thought.

Nah I think the impassioned defense of the maga-hat wearing blonde guy bragging about reporting a brown kid to ICE while posin in front of a painting of Trump dressed up like a fascist put the words there.

Speaking of money, where is the money for this higher level of employee insurance going to come from?

That's coming out of people's wages

<del>I don't understand a lot about the term "higher level of insurance", because I don't live in the United Snakes. If you can further clarify, maybe I can learn something new. What are high and low levels? Low levels only cover cheap-to-treat diseases?</del> Forget it, I've just seen what you mean.

Exactly, and the state is spending those taxes in wars, repression and destroying the most basic human rights. The problem, I think, is that the workers aren't in control of the decisions that affect them. A company is playing with their health based on ideological grounds, which probably most of their employees don't share.
