South because it would be cheaper, I have to wonder why they continue to stay in the South. I mean, logically I know it's because of obscene profits made by exploiting workers and freely polluting the environment, but they are sooo short-sighted. If they pick up these costs now, other costs will escalate over time, i.e.: more money put into attracting and maintaining an educated workforce; transporting/moving threatened marginal employees to safer states (because this is just the beginning of open season on liberals); and legal costs when they're slapped up with lawsuits for accessory to murder for assisting women in obtaining abortions. Not to mention the cost of the climate change barreling down the pike.
And then of course there's the whole debacle of forcing women to talk to their bosses about wanting/needing an abortion! Surely that has to fall under some umbrella medical privacy law. It's not like employers have access to HIPAA information, so unless the employee consents/feels free to volunteer that info, cool. But what if they have a fundie boss or coworker? That's gonna get a lot of pushback, especially from any unionized company. More company money for legal fees! How are investors going to feel about spending that money?
