Monsanto, headquartered in Creve Coeur.
For the fourth year in a row, the Human Rights Campaign named Creve Coeur-based Monsanto one of the best places to work for LGBT employees.

Monsanto is the only Fortune 1000 company in St. Louis -- and only one of 304 major businesses across the country -- to earn a perfect score in the Human Rights Campaign's annual measure of workplace equality.

Monsanto earned that perfect score with its non-discrimination policies, health benefits for domestic partners, philanthropic support, internal diversity committees and even a health plan for transgender employees that helps cover reconstructive surgeries and hormone treatment.

"We are proud of our company's diversity and our focus on inclusion to ensure that every voice is heard and every person is treated equally, as these are critical to our process," says Nicole Ringenberg, Monsanto vice president, in a statement.

This is like praising Darth Vader for providing independent contractors on the death star with health insurance.

This is like lauding Halliburton for no documented cases of human trafficking.

What? They hire gay and transgendered people? Well, that completely excuses the millions of lives that were ruined by their endless litigation!

Once all your non gay/non transgenders quit because you're poisoning the society, you have to open new avenues for employees. I don't think being gay or transgender makes you any less intelligent however.

How about the RIGHT to know what is in our food?! Don't humans have the RIGHT to know that? Monsanto has spent millions to make sure we don't have that RIGHT. Way to go!
