Injustice at work - Data show anti-LGBT discrimination still persistent, pervasive

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Surveys, polls, and wage data indicate that employment discrimination against LGBT people is persistent and pervasive, according to new research conducted by UCLA's Williams Institute.

Research further indicates that enforcement of anti-discrimination protections is not overly burdensome, and businesses generally support nondiscrimination policies.

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would provide federal protection against sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination, now awaits consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives, where a majority of Republicans say they oppose it.

Williams Institute research released earlier this week shows that a majority of Americans in every congressional district supports laws that protect against sexual orientation discrimination.
