Mike Villarreal</a> filed legislation HB 238, which if passed would amend the Texas Labor Code to provide equal employment protections for gay and transgender employees.</p><p>"My question is," said Villareal: "Is this person showing up on time and doing their job? If they are, then they should be treated no differently than anybody else. Unfortunately, the LBGT community doesn't have the same protections in the state of Texas that they enjoy in other states."</p> Tue, 04 Dec 2012 22:34:38 +0000 David Martin Davies 2793 at http://tpr.org Villarreal Files Bill To Prohibit Sexual Orientation Job Discrimination
