The American Family Association hosted boycott of Target was announced on April 20th and has since gained more than 1,000,000 signatures pledged against Target and their ‘open all of their stores’ bathrooms and changing rooms to people of both sexes’ policy. Target’s policy has caused uproar it favors its few transgender customers and staff over the rest of the population.
The controversy has not been good for Target’s stock value. Its stock edged down from $83.98 per share on April 19 to roughly $81.33 in April 28 and that’s a loss of $2.65 per share, which cuts the company’s stock market value by $1.5 billion, down to $48.8 billion.
Do you think it’s time for Target to rethink its restroom policy?
