HRC corporate equality index- just a reminder to vote with your dollars

I've been using this as a guide for years, sometimes writing some companies to encourage them to get their profile a bit up to snuff, a few to some results, and discovery of some companies that are disgustingly anti-LGBTQ even these days.
Oddly enough, a few companies I was following are now missing on their scale. One in particular used to rate a big goose-egg on their equality index I threw the brakes on buying... Sketchers shoes. I wrote them after this revolting discovery, never got a reply and never saw any improvement. Darn comfortable shoes manufactured by homophobic company. Several other healthcare workers followed my lead in writing them, they probably just stopped responding to HRC's correspondence as well. Nike's... all good, 100 percent.
Skip the damn Dollar Tree, they rate zero, Dollar General has better if not 100 percent rating for much the same products. Foot Locker... a zero! (really?, damn) O'really Auto parts is a zero, and Auto Zone rates pretty low. Tractor Supply, zero. Skip Valero gas station-- zero. Dillard's, Bed Bath and Beyond--- zeros. Disconnect your Dish Network and tell them why.
Oh, and big surprise--- NewsCorp, owners of Fox Noise... zero. CHS healthcare and hospitals-- avoid if possible. Publix supermarkets-zero, and CVS drugstores, zip.
Priceline improved slightly but still needs to move up.
The list of companies who score that goose-egg has shrunk considerably since marriage equality. It's gotten considerably easier to avoid the total asshole companies. Check list at the link above for the latest, voting with our dollars is every bit as important at taking down the RW crazy machines as going to the polls.
