While I might not care for the corporate policy involved, I do not, it boils down to just that, a corporate decision, one based on possibly erroneous "thinking", never-the-less, their's to make.
The other side of the coin, and there always is one of those appears to be the following. The public might also disagree with this "corporate policy", as a result, in droves, staying away from corporate stores. That sort of thing has, I suspect, worked changes in "corporate policies".
I noticed references to a federal court siding with the employer. If that is District Court, their ruling can be appealed to a higher court, where a different ruling might be obtained. I expect that can get expensive though.
