Here’s CEO Gregg Steinhafel talking to shareholders yesterday about Target’s support of conservative political candidates and causes — including an upcoming ballot initiative for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in Minnesota:
“Our position at this particular time is that we are going to be neutral on that particular issue, as we would be on other social issues that have polarizing points of view,” Steinhafel said at Target’s annual meeting in Pittsburgh.
“We’re a retail store, we welcome everybody,” he said. “We have a broad team-member base, every shape and size and color. And so we are a very inclusive organization. … We’re going to continue to monitor, we’re going to continue to assess, and see how that develops.”
“At this particular time”? “Continue to assess”?
Ugh, fuck that man and the store he rode in on.
