The Bottom Line
Coauthored with the National LGBTQ Workers Center, MAP’s new brief, LGBT People in the Workplace: Demographics, Experiences and Pathways to Equity
, details the history, demographics and experiences of LGBT people in the workplace. In addition to outlining the barriers facing LGBT workers because of prejudice, the brief also examines the added challenges facing workers—lower wages, lack of comprehensive immigration reform, barriers to employment for individuals with a criminal record, a changing economic landscape—and how these challenges also impact LGBT employees. The report concludes with recommendations for enacting federal- and state- level protections and advancing worker-centered change at the local level.
