  • American business owners discover a remarkable solution to the worker shortage problem

    A 'Help Wanted' sign is posted beside Coronavirus safety guidelines in front of a restaurant in Los Angeles, California on May 28, 2021. - Following over a year of restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, many jobs at restaurants, retail stores and bars remain unfilled, despite California's high unemployment rate, causing some owners to fear they will not be able to fully reopen by the June 15th date California has given for a full reopening of the economy.

  • Black LGBTQ people are more likely to live in states that don't protect against discrimination

    MINNEAPOLIS, MN - JUNE 28: A girl raises her fist in the air in front of the Minneapolis First Precinct during a Pride march on June 28, 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    LGBTQ people of color—and especially trans people of color—face disproportionate levels of harm, discrimination, and oppression when compared to cisgender, heterosexual populations—especially, white, cisgender, heterosexual populations. LGBTQ folks of color, however, also endure more harm than their white queer peers. For many of us, that information isn’t terribly surprising, though it is of course disturbing. And as the Equality […] More

  • Colorado baker fined $500 for refusing to make cake for openly trans woman

    WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 05: Conservative Christian baker Jack Phillips leaves the Supreme Court after the court heard the case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission December 5, 2017 in Washington, DC. Siting his religious beliefs, Phillips refused to sell a gay couple a wedding cake for their same-sex ceremony in 2012, beginning a legal battle over freedom of speech and religion. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

    On Tuesday, a district judge in Denver, Colorado, ruled in favor of an openly trans woman whose request for a local Christian baker to make her a birthday cake was refused.
