Certain legislators in Indiana’s Senate are trying to push codify bigotry in their state’s Constitution by explicitly banning same-sex marriage, and it’s opening up an interesting divide between social conservative wingnuts and big business:
Jill Cook, vice president of human resources for Cummins Inc., said her company, which employs 5,500 workers at its Columbus, Ind., headquarters, would think twice about expanding if the amendment is approved.
“This resolution sends a powerful message that Indiana is not a place that welcomes people of all backgrounds, and it jeopardizes our ability to attract employees,” Cook said.
Yep. This is one place where corporations can actually be useful, because they’re in the business of recruiting the best and brightest. Protecting the fee fees of social conservative wingnuts really isn’t on their radar, for the most part.
