On the Blog: ENDA
A long-running debate returns to Capitol Hill this week: whether to prohibit discrimination in hiring and employment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Decide for yourself after reading our post, entitled: The ENDA Debate.
The House is on hiatus this week.
The Senate will debate S. 815, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2013. The bill would prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. It would not apply to the military, religious organizations, and employers of fewer than 15 people.
Passage of S. 815 would cost about forty cents per U.S. family.
