RALEIGH, NC – NC Lt. Governor Dan Forest has issued a response to PayPal’s decision to not expand in Charlotte over HB2.
The expansion would have created 400 new jobs.
Corporations have expressed disappointment over the law and the NCAA vowed to monitor what North Carolina does next now that the state has banned any local government measures protecting people from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
“If our action in keeping men out of women’s bathrooms and showers protected the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it. North Carolina will never put a price tag on the value of our children. They are precious and priceless. If a corporation wanting to do business in North Carolina does not see the worth of our children in the same light, then I wish them well as they do business somewhere else,” said Forest.
