Proposition 8 Defeats California

7 11 2008

I couldn’t have said it better myself:

“Senators Boxer and Feinstein, the mayors of San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, the state’s major editorial pages, Pacific Gas and Electric, tech titans Google and Apple — all opposed Proposition 8. Their opposition was rooted in the American ideal of liberty and justice for all, but it made practical sense, too. Call it a slow brain drain (brain leak?), call it a competitive disadvantage in recruitment, call it what you want. At the end of the day, bigotry is not just morally repugnant — it’s also bad business.”

The number one reason to be inclusive in your business is to avoid driving away some of the best talent with discriminatory policies. It’s just bad business.
