Walmart Supports Marriage Equality With Healthcare Benefits For Same-Sex Couples!!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspirationWalmartGIFs

Walmart is taking a step in the right direction by offering benefits for same-sex couples!

Sure, Walmart has had a controversial and turbulent history, but they’re finally taking a step in the right direction!!

The largest U.S. private employer is officially extending healthcare benefits to workers’ same-sex partners, and we could not be more thrilled about it!

Due to the retailer’s incredibly large size, many now think that other employers will change their policies as well. Wallace Hopp, a researcher at University of Michigan, has noted:

"You can go to your board, and all of a sudden you’re not swimming against the stream as much as you were yesterday. You can say, ‘Jeez, Walmart does it.’ They’re so big that everything they do sets an example."

The reason for Walmart's change of heart is due to recent political shifts, so many thanks to equal rights supporters everywhere!

A rep for Walmart, Randy Hargrove, released the following statement about their new policy:

"We thought it was important to develop a single definition for all Walmart associates in the U.S. to give them consistency in the various markets we operate in across the country."

Walmart is finally thinking progressively!! And we LURVE it!

Hopefully other corporations will follow their lead!

    Staples has also been offering these benefits for years. It's about time Wal-Mart jumped on the the equality bandwagon.
