While the folks at HRC can’t contain their outrage that the company (with an excellent record of treating gay employees fairly) won’t kowtow to their demands, the folks at Target are having a little fun with the left-of-center gay group. Just yesterday, I received this report from a reader:
I am starting college next week and decided to apply for a job at Target. So I log on to their web site and saw that they have a banner up touting their perfect score from the HRC as one of the best places to work. After hearing about the greivences the HRC has with Target, I knew this bragging wasn’t incidental. It seems to me that they are using the HRC’s own words to show what a ridiculous issue they are creating. I think its hilarious, and I applaud Target for using the HRC to fight back against the HRC.
Here’s the screenshot of the banner:
Guess their just reminding people that HRC’s recent grandstanding notwithstanding, the organization has honored them for treating their gay employees with dignity. One more reason to shop at Target.
