      Fairfield, United States

Transgender/Transsexual/Gender Variant people comprise the highest percentage of unemployment in the USA. Our unemployment rate is over double that of the general population. A vast majority of us live below the poverty level (~$10,400.00/year). We are denied employment opportunities solely because of what we are . . . as opposed to who we are! Many of us have college degrees and/or advanced degrees. Yet, our unemployment rate remains double that of college educated heterosexuals. And remember, "A society will be judged by how well it treats its' weakest members. "The Right to Work" is every American's God given right! Please take the time to read my full post on the subject; and if you agree with its' content . . . then write your Congressmen/Congresswomen, Senators, President, and Media, and ask them to pass a bill that will give Transgendered/Transsexual people "The Right to Work"!

Pass "The Right to Work" Bill for all Transgender/Transsexual People!

Sincerely,

      Today is the 50th Anniversary of The Civil Rights March On Washington D.C. Civil Rights are for all Americans . . . not just the Dominant Culture! President Bush (in 2007) refused to pass ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) if it included Transgender/Transsexual/Gender Variant People.

      Please sign this petition (and then pass it on to anyone who truly cares about the Civil Rights of others) that will give all Transgender/Transsexual/Gender Variant People the same Civil Rights that you already have!

      Everyone is born equal. Being transgender, transsexual or even gender variant doesn't hurt anyone and doesn't make you any less of a man, woman and certainly a human being than anyone else. To discriminate against someone who is one (or more) of the three is absolutely evil and unacceptable.

      America was founded on diversity. Strength lies in numbers... So let's fight the good fight for all to have equality regardless of faith, race, and gender identity. History has proven that right trumps wrong and eventually time will prove this out.✨

      Because this country should be for "all the people" not just "some of the people".

      All people deserve equal opportunities for employment based on their skills and the best fit for the position not their lifestyle choices, disability, race, or religion. Human rights for all people there is no difference!
