You Can Still Be Fired for Being LGBTQ in Some States, but Maybe the Supreme Court Will Fix That

Evil HR Lady

Indiana and Wisconsin recognize sexual orientation as a protected class, but not gender identity. Discrimination against people for their sexual orientation is wrong, right? We should hire, promote, and pay people based on what they contribute to the business not on who they date (or don’t date). But, federal law isn’t clear and right now, LGBTQ people only have clear protections in place in some states.

How Women are Changing the Face of Construction

Ms. Career Girl

Some companies, such as Miron Construction in Wisconsin, are taking a proactive approach to both the labor shortage and the gender imbalance by actively courting young women.

However, the numbers are slowly climbing even with some industry experts predicting that one in four construction workers will be a woman by 2020.
