Watch and see. SF will be next just like other companies to give its employees an added "benefit" of travel expenses to have an abortion. I would hope they really think about it before they jump on the bandwagon like Di-ks Sporting Goods, Kroger, etc did.

Don't worry, lol, our leadership is too scared of right wing media to try anything like that. Pizza Hut has more ba--s than we do.
You think you got problems now? Shut down agents and then they’ll make YOU take all the customers angry calls and expect YOU to explain this stuff in a way that a) satisfies the customer and b) convinces them they should have more State Farm products.
THAT will be a sh-t show.
Agents aren’t employees, who cares what the company gave them. They could all close and the company would keep moving forward. Their days of living off their book of business is over, those new contracts can’t happen fast enough.
"Agents got wined, dined and pandered to during an all-expenses paid week of luxury in Vegas."
I got a hotel room, a very small travel allowance, and a Garth Brooks concert. I "wined and dined" as one must do when away from home, entirely at my own expense. It was a nice couple of days and I'm thankful for it.
But an "all expenses-paid, week of luxury" It most certainly was not.
If it's so great, and lucrative, and easy, you can certainly contact somebody about becoming an agent.
SF leadership is too weak to take a public stand on any issue affecting its employees, regardless of which side they’re on. The only thing they care about is agents. That’s it. Not customers, not employees. Just agents. The stark difference between the way they handled the company’s 100 year milestone for agents vs employees is a perfect example of this. Agents got wined, dined and pandered to during an all-expenses paid week of luxury in Vegas. Employees got to choose between eating a sweaty hamburger or a sweaty hotdog outside under a circus tent while trying to avoid getting heat exhaustion.
Not my fight…and clearly if it were to happen it would have broad wording for all kinds health and family issues. But why would we object to an employee benefit offering?
I personally hope so, but if they didn't do it so far I doubt they'll do it now.
