BREAKING NEWS: Another 730 Jobs Lost Because of HB2

CoStar Group, a real estate research firm, announced Monday that it had chosen Richmond over Charlotte for its research operations center. Say buh-bye to 730 jobs, Mecklenburg County, and an estimated $250 million in local investment.
CoStar officials had earlier focused their search on a new office tower under construction at 615 S. College Street in uptown Charlotte, where it would have been an anchor tenant, said the sources, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. But the company’s board rejected the location because of HB2, which limits protections for LGBT individuals, the sources said. [Charlotte Observer]
Less than two weeks left before that man who signed that law and who continues to defend it is gone for good!
