Anti Gay Companies To Avoid
A-1 Self Storage, Auto Zone, Babies R Us, Boy Scouts, Celestial Seasonings, Chick-Fil-A, Cinemark, Cracker Barrel, Dole, Domino's Pizza, Exxon Mobil, Gold's Gym, Humana, John Deere, Meijer, Purina, Radio Shack, Salvation Army, Sam's Club, Toys R Us, Urban Outfitters & Walmart.
Just keep in mind that while federal law prohibits discrimination in the workplace on the basis of race, religion, age & disability we still do not have a federal law that protects gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgender people from discrimination. In some areas of the country, state or local laws offer some protections. However in most places companies can fire gay employees just because of their sexual orientation. Companies like Cracker Barrel have written policies that states, "It is inconsistent with our concept & values & is perceived to be inconsistent with those of our customer base, to continue to employ individuals in our operating units whose sexual preferences fail to demonstrate normal heterosexual values.” So with our buying power we can avoid doing business with the above companies. We hope that this list will encourage Obama in his evolution to pass ENDA (the Employment Non-Discrimination Act) & protect our LGBT community in the workplace. Updates to Come..:)
