Towards a more perfect union: NY AFL-CIO stands up for LGBTs

by Jeremy Hooper

200809081316And now in "organized labor supports organized equality" news: The New York arm of the AFL-CIO has passed, without objection, three resolutions calling on the state Legislature to (1) pass bills that provide marriage equality for same-sex couples, (2) ban discrimination against the transgender community, and (3) provide a mechanism to end bullying and harassment of LGBT youth in public schools. Empire State Pride Agenda lays it all out via press release:

Press Release: NYS AFL-CIO calls on State Legislature to pass marriage equality, transgender non-discrimination and anti-bullying bills [ESPA]

Good for L-A-B-O-R. Good for L-G-B-T.

Not to be outdone, we hear the NY arm of the Dept. of Paying Workers Under The Table So As To Maximize Our Own Profits Without Concern For Employee Welfare (DPWUT-SATMOOP-WCFEW) will today issue their own resolution saying they couldn't care less what sort of wedding their workers plan with their $1.17/hour, just as long as they don't plan on taking more than 12 minutes out of their mandatory 75-hour workweek to hold the ceremony.
