BALTIMORE- Support for Question 6, the Civil Marriage Protection Act, continues to gain widespread and diverse support as we approach Election Day. Today, PayPal, a Timonium-based subsidiary of eBay Inc., Calvert Investments in Bethesda, NIKE, Inc. and Nordstrom endorsed Question 6 in Maryland.
“We believe Question 6 is about fairness and equality under the law; it’s good public policy and a smart business practice that enhances competitiveness,” said Bennett Freeman, Senior Vice President, Sustainability Research and Policy of Calvert Investments. “As investors, we have long promoted the adoption of workplace policies that afford equal treatment of gay and lesbian employees, such as inclusive language in nondiscrimination policies, and equal benefits.”
