Most people do not know that in 29 states you can still be fired for being gay, and sadly Arizona is one of them

From the Huffington Post:
Most Americans incorrectly think that this problem has already been solved. A 2013 HuffPost/YouGov poll found that 69 percent of Americans think that firing people for being gay is illegal.
So any protections that get through in these behind-the-times states comes from the more progressive cities within them, though sadly my city, Scottsdale, is not one of them. So imagine my delight when I saw this in our paper this morning:

Thank you Joanie! At this point just informing people of this injustice is probably one of our best weapons. But putting a fire under the fanny of some of these city councils is probably not a bad idea either and Joanie just did both.
