Buying equality

If you're like me you go shopping for the best deals, the lowest prices and customer service that mama would approve of. 

There's one other thing I look for - and that's how fair and equal a company treats its employees.  That's why I highly encourage all of you to take a look at this year's Corporate Quality Index report compiled by the Human Rights Campaign.

The good news:  "The seventh annual Corporate Equality Index shows an unprecedented 259 major U.S. businesses earned the top rating of 100 percent, up from 195 last year - an increase of one third. Detailed information on each employer rated is included in the report and on our employer database under "Employers with Corporate Equality Index rating"."

The bad news:  There are still companies who feel it's okay to discriminate against employees based on age, religion, race and sexual orientation.
