The gay collective, against Apple for its new Campus

Currently, Apple is considered the most friendly corporation with LGBT workers and causes. The gender equality rating within their campuses is one of the highest according to the most influential movements that are dedicated to evaluating these factors. However, his most recent decision has managed to divide the LGBT community in North Carolina.

According to a statement from The Associated Press, Apple Inc. is about to decide whether to build a planned corporate center in the Raleigh-Durham area, a project that would create 5,000,000 jobs in the short term, but which activists say would boost a state that currently limits the rights of LGBT people. According to a representative of the Axios organization.

    "North Carolina is one of the most hostile states in the country for LGBTQ people, without a credible path to progress in the short term. Under these conditions, it is difficult to imagine that any company decides to take its operations and thousands of employees there. "

Despite Apple's credentials in respecting the beliefs of its workers, activists are concerned that the decision to build a campus in North Carolina could open doors for others who want to settle in states with anti-dumping laws. LGBT

Meanwhile, other optimists trust that this could be an opportunity for companies like Apple to make a difference within a state that does not fully protect LGBT characters.

The controversial situation that has encouraged activist boycott actions began in 2016, with the creation of a state law that required transgender people to use the restrooms of public buildings corresponding to sex on their birth certificates. A replacement law passed a year later eliminated that mandate, but it kept the ban on cities from enacting their own regulations to protect the LGBT community.

Will Apple influence to modify the laws of this state?
