Wolf calls for non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Pennsylvanians as U.S. Supreme Court

Wolf calls for non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Pennsylvanians as U.S. Supreme Court considers the issue


As the U.S. Supreme Court considers whether LGBTQ workers are protected by federal law, Gov. Tom Wolf is again calling for a state-level nondiscrimination ordinance.

“For too long to our collective detriment, we kept some of our best, most talented individuals out of the workforce because of nationality, religion, race or gender,” Wolf said in a statement Tuesday. “When we began protecting the rights of these individuals to work, we all benefitted. Now it’s time to ensure our hardworking, talented LGBTQ colleagues have the same rights to be evaluated based on their abilities to perform their jobs.”

“Since taking office, I have fought for comprehensive nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ Pennsylvanians. I will continue this fight until every Pennsylvanian has the same basic civil rights to live and work,” Wolf continued.

The U.S. Supreme Court cases center on two men who say they were fired for being gay, as well as a woman who says she was fired for being transgender, according to law news site SCOTUSblog.
