The brass at Nike aren’t about to lose money, shares of stock or talented employees over North Carolina’s controversial transgender bathroom bill.
According to Yahoo Sports — Nike is one of 68 companies who have filed a brief requesting that North Carolina’s controversial House Bill 2 be blocked.
The law limits the use of bathrooms by transgender people, requiring them to use a restroom that match with their sex rather than the gender they identify with.
“H.B. 2 and the naked, invidious discrimination it condones is already damaging [companies’] ability to recruit and retain a diverse workforce and is imposing a substantial disincentive to investment and commerce in the state, directly impacting their bottom line,” the brief reads.
Nike has already discussed boycotting the 2017 NBA All-Star in Charlotte, N.C., over the bill, although the brand isn’t an official sponsor of the event.
Nike terminated the contract Manny Pacquiao over his homophobic comments earlier this year.
