Companies cheer marriage equality vote

November 15, 2017

Qantas, Commonwealth Bank and ANZ Australia are among wave of companies endorsing the 'yes' vote.

Australian businesses have applauded the nation's majority 'yes' decision in the national voluntary same-sex marriage postal vote.

Qantas, Commonwealth Bank and ANZ Australia were among the wave of supporters who turned to Twitter to express their delight after the Australian Bureau of Statistics announced a 61.6 per cent 'yes' vote on Wednesday.

Business Council of Australia chief executive Jennifer Westacott said, in a personal statement, the vote was a victory for "all those who have felt like outsiders", and said parliament should now act quickly to resolve the issue.
