NStar Against Equal Rights of Gays and Lesbians

NStar Against Equal Rights of Gays and Lesbians

By Lloyd Hart

Nstar Corporation which provides electricity throughout Massachusetts has recently declared that they will not extend their benefits package to the gay and lesbian spouses of their employees. This of course can be considered a militant and an illegal act under the Constitution of Massachusetts but in the 200 year history of America and the 150 year history the American corporation what law has not been broken by the American elite and corporate sector.

Well, if Nstar Corporation wants to flaunt the law that I say let's use the law to discipline Nstar Corporation and their militant and lawless behavior.

Starting January 1st 2005 all those that believe that the spouses of gay and lesbian couples should receive benefits from the Nstar Corporation benefits package - which is the part of the agreed to and contractual payment plan Nstar Corporation is obligated to pay out to its employees - should no longer pay their electrical bill in full and should negotiate a hardship payment plan.

This campaign would string out this winter's bottom-line income so far into the future it will cause cash shortfalls for Nstar Corporation enough to get the board of directors that made the militant and lawless decision of not recognizing gay ans lesbian marriage in the state of Massachusetts removed from the board of directors of Nstar Corporation.
