Equality NC, a statewide organization that works to secure equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender North Carolinians, released the following statement:
“PayPal’s announcement that it’s taking 400 jobs out of Charlotte makes it clear as day that HB2 is dangerous and harmful legislation. Governor McCrory and Senator Berger are willfully hurting North Carolina with HB2. The Governor and our North Carolina General Assembly leadership must immediately make it clear that their intentions are to repeal HB2 when they will meet for session on April 25. This is a must if we are to remain an economically competitive state.”
WSOC-TV is reaching out to North Carolina Gov. McCrory for his response to the announcement. Check back with wsoctv.com for updates on this story.
