Wal-Mart Adds Trans Protections For Employees

Wally world is now offering protection for its transgender employees, adding gender identity to their list of protected categories.

"Wal-Mart, the nation's largest retailer, already has protections for LGB employees. The additional transgender protections were praised by the Human Rights Campaign.

“What matters in the workplace is how you do your job, not your gender identity or sexual orientation,” HRC President Joe Solmonese said in a press release. “As the nation’s largest private employer, Wal-Mart shows that doing the right thing is also good for business. We urge them to continue to move forward by ensuring all of their LGBT employees receive equal benefits.”

Great news, but I still look back on being a Wal-Mart cashier as a mildly profitable, but soul-draining experience lol.
