Our goal at 2ndVote is to keep you informed on causes that corporations are supporting with your money, in order to ensure that they are held accountable for their actions.
Here are some of the key findings and data points of interest discovered in our recent research:
Tractor Supply Co. (1.86) – While most may assume that being a farming and blue-collar work supply retailer would make Tractor Supply Co. a supporter of conservative causes, in fact, the opposite is true. Large donations to a chapter of the United Way that supports Planned Parenthood make for low scores on Life. Additionally, high scores on the HRC Corporate Equality Index, as well as being a signatory to the CEO Action Pledge for Diversity and Inclusion results in low scores on Basic Freedoms as well.
Macy’s (1.54) – Macy’s is one of the poorest scoring department stores in the 2ndVote database. A plethora of liberal actions contributes to low scores across nearly every issue; the worst of which includes membership in the HRC’s Coalition for the Equality Act, which infringes on religious liberty rights, and a recent abortion trafficking policy that promises to help employees seek abortions across state lines.
Microsoft, Inc. (1.21) – Microsoft earns bottom-of-the-barrel scores on nearly every key issue. However, its one redeeming quality is that the tech giant is a colossal supporter of charter schools and school choice; with literal tens of millions of dollars donated to support charter school programs, over $23.7 million to be precise, earning high scores on education.
