State Rep. Dan Frankel steps up for homos once again!
“We must fight this irrational amendment. Progress on this issue is slow
but it is steady. Look at Corporate America: about half of the Fortune
500 companies offer domestic-partner benefits – it's just equal benefits
for equal work. Eleven states provide these benefits to their employees,
as do many major universities around the country. More than 8,000 U.S.
companies now offer these benefits. While most of the country moves
forward, passing this amendment would make us a backwater for economic
development,” Frankel said.
“Who would want to come to Pennsylvania to invest, to teach, to learn,
if we promote discrimination and intolerance?”
