Cartoon clarification

The businessman in Wayne Stroot’s cartoon in Thursday’s Hastings Tribune has nothing to fear from LB 485.

Substitute the already-protected classes (race, color, religion, sex, disability, marital status or national origin) for Stroot’s labels on the cartoon’s iron-fist fingers, and it becomes obvious that Mr. Businessman is merely being asked to hire based on which person has the best qualifications for the job, rather than on any pre-conceived notions.

With the motto “Equality Before the Law,” there should be no question as to whether Nebraskans believe there should be discrimination against any citizens in employment and housing.
