Yesterday, another Minnesota company came out against the Minnesota marriage amendment. Thomson Reuters, the “leading source of intelligent information for business and professionals,” shared that this amendment would impact their business. Spokesman John Shaughnessy said:
We believe the Minnesota Marriage Amendment, if passed, would limit our ability to recruit and retain top talent
And it’s true. With Thomson Reuters headquartered in New York, where gay marriage is legal, why would talent for the company choose to move to a state that passes an amendment to the constitution to limit the rights and freedoms of residents? It makes clear sense why the company would stand up and say NO to this freedom-limiting, mean-spirited amendment.
Kudos to another company – with strong Minnesota ties – for standing up for what is right and encouraging voters to just say NO.
