What do you think about ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act)?
Just that an employer can fire you for being gay is testament to the fact that we need this.
ENDA bans discrimination of sexual orientation and transgender workers, which is currently not covered by federal law.
This is not already illegal. You can be fired for being gay in at least 15 states or so. You can be fired for gender identity in a few more than that. I can't give exact numbers, but it is a sad thing.
Yes, I support it in principle anyway, without knowing how it would work in detail.
Puzzled by the exemption for businesses smaller than 15 employees though.
I believe it's illegal in some states.
And the point I was making is that this issue - like gay marriage - is truly a civil rights issue - and states should not be able to allow discrimination against LGBTQ individuals.
I realize you do fredd - sorry
I agree with you.
Doesn't federal law trump state law - especially in constitutional issues
Whoops, wrong place!
I think the Supreme Court will make it so soon enough
And ENDA would be a federal law
Yes. The point I was making is that it's currently illegal only in states which have passed their own laws.
Yeah shelly, I think we were kinda talking at cross-purposes or something. No matter.
"Harry Reid will brig ENDA up for senate vote"
Isn't it already illegal? Dems just busy themselves with crap like this.
