4. Texas, too. You can be fired because your boss doesn't like your sense of humor.

Or is just tired of seeing your mug each morning.

Now, federal law prohibits larger employers from firing people for certain reasons, such as race or creed. I'd be glad to include sexual orientation in that list. But keep in mind, federal law 1) still doesn't prevent employers from firing employees for completely non-business reasons, such as their bad sense of humor, and 2) only applies to employers that have more than a certain number of employees. The baker looking for a single assistant may hire only white Southern Baptists, if he so chooses.
