How to get hired when you’re just starting your career
Great news for LGBT friends and family!
“Today's vote was a historic vote for equality and freedom," Merkley said in a statement after the vote. "Deeply embedded in the constitution are notions of freedom and liberty, and discrimination is the antithesis of those founding values. Everyone should have the right to work hard and earn a living. No one should be fired for who they are or who they love. The Senate said today in a strong bipartisan voice that discrimination is just plain wrong. We are one step closer to equality for our LGBT friends and family." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/07/enda-vote_n_4228502.html
