Nov 21, 2007 Quickie Link: HRC Raises Red Flag on Wal-Mart Policies
By vanrozenheim

(USA) - HRC is giving Wal-Mart (WMT) a red "do not buy" rating in its new consumer guide, bestowing a lump of coal on the retail giant just in time for the holiday shopping season. Citing Wal-Mart's refusal to offer domestic partner benefits to its Gay and Lesbian workers, the HRC said Tuesday that the USA's biggest private employer has "more work to do in furthering equality." It advised Gays and their supporters to shop elsewhere. Wal-Mart rated a red 40 on a scale of 100, down from a yellow 65 in 2006. It was among 54 companies that scored 45 or lower in HRC's 2008 Corporate Equality index, which assigns ratings to 519 large companies. Also in the red: Toys R Us, RadioShack (RSH) and AutoZone (AZO).
