Fortune 500: 93% Protect Gay Employees
Equality Forum reports that a whopping 466 of Fortune 500 companies now offer protection to their gay employees. Highest ranked of the holdouts is #2 Exxon Mobil, but you have to go all the way down to #95, Liberty Mutual, to find the next company still witholding protection. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Texas leads the list of states with the most non-compliant companies, with 14, including Exxon Mobil. I'm a bit shocked to see that the only non-compliant company in New York is Virgin Media. And here I thought Richard Branson was a righteous dude.
