The legal and business information company Thomson Reuters has come out against an amendment to ban marriage equality in Minnesota. The company said Friday it doesn’t believe the amendment “would be good for Thomson Reuters or the business community in the state.” It says it would hurt recruiting. Prominent companies such as General Mills and St. Jude Medical spoke out earlier against the proposed amendment, which goes to voters in November. The state already has a law against marriage equality, but opponents say it’s necessary to put the ban in the state constitution.
