Beyond Bathrooms: Gov. McCrory’s #HB2 flushed local power, workplace rights down the toilet
Make the call for full REPEAL
Gov. Pat McCrory signed H.B. 2 into law less than 12 hours after it was introduced on March 23rd, and he’s been defending it ever since – although he may be starting to crack under pressure from weeks of blistering editorials, a growing list of business leaders condemning the law, and mounting job losses as major corporations like PayPal and Deutsche Bank cancel plans to move to or expand in North Carolina.
Most of the attention paid to North Carolina’s controversial new law has focused on its repeal of Charlotte’s anti-discrimination ordinance, particularly its accommodations for transgender citizens, but the law significantly undermined the rights of ALL working people in our state.

Perhaps it’s just me being Oversensitive™, but the tone of this is… annoying. “This law specifically targeted and harmed vulnerable transgender citizens, but it also had meaningful effects!”
An atrocious piece of legislation for any so called democratic state to implement.
Discrimination can now run rampant and the quality of jobs can be kept to a minimum to suit the big corporations. (Or those that are left in NC, after the economic backlash hits.)
The people that push for these laws are rarely a majority, but they are loud, they are shameless and they are incessant in their attempts to push their gospel of hatred. As other people move thir dollars & business out of state, they will scream that they themselves are being victimised by those who refuse to enable them.
Those who go after Trans people sooner or later go after other people too. Now if they only went after Trans people, there’d be no objection, right? Or do I misinterpret this policy?
