How most states allow discrimination against LGBTQ people

German Lopez of Vox writes, “In most states, it’s legal for an employer to fire workers simply because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.

The cause isn’t a religious freedom law, like the one that sparked a major battle over LGBTQ rights in Indiana in 2015. Instead, most states’ civil rights laws don’t explicitly protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in the workplace, housing, or restaurants and other places that serve the general public.”
