The Omaha World Herald Editorial Board supports Senator Morfeld’s LB 586 which would prohibit workplace discrimination against LGBT Nebraskans. You can view the editorial here

Here is an excerpt:

“Nebraska businesses are looking for more qualified workers. Nebraska communities are hoping to recruit more new employers.

Turns out that both workers and employers could be willing to relocate. Except that Nebraska’s employment anti-discrimination law falls short of our competitors’.

Nebraska law contains no protections for sexual preference or gender expression. Increasingly, this impedes a state’s ability to grow.

That’s why lawmakers should follow the lead of major employers that have pledged to advance equal treatment in the workplace. Passing Legislative Bill 586 would extend equal protection for workers statewide. It would be good for business.”
