PayPal Nixes 400 Jobs in North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Law

PayPal announced Tuesday it will not hire more than 400 people in Charlotte, North Carolina, after the state repealed anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people. “The new law perpetuates discrimination and it violates the values and principles that are at the core of PayPal’s mission and culture,” the company said in a statement. “As a result, PayPal will not move forward with our planned expansion into Charlotte.”
