FOX Charlotte’s Lyra Manning did a great story last night on the 10 p.m. newscast.

On Thursday, Google’s announced they’d give gay and lesbian employees a slight pay increase in order to compensate them for financial inequities resulting from taxation of their same-sex partner’s health benefits.

Overall, Manning’s piece was positive, had lots of great info and I’m so happy she and the FOX Charlotte team devoted enough time to the story to adequately and accurately explain the situation. Although it would have been nice to have an LGBT business voice, the story still turned out great.

One reply on “FOX Charlotte on Google, gay pay, partner benefits”

  1. Why does the homosexal’s feel the need to impose there value’s on the rest of the country? By and large most American’s want to be left alone and not have homosexalty or environmentalism or any other part of the Leftist Communistic religion thrust upon us. The reason we oppose legalize gay marriage is that if you allow it then the rest of us will be forced to subsidize something that may be a violation of our religion (i.e. a violation of our First Amendment Rights). I would favor a law that allows for Gay unions with a rider that small business owners do not have to recognize it if they choose not to (i.e. not forcing us to offer health benefits to the other spouse even if we offer them to traditional marriage spouses).
