Oshtemo Township moves to protect LGBT community from employment discrimination

OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- Leaders in Oshtemo Township will be moving forward in the effort to approve an ordinance protecting the gay, lesbian, and the transgendered from employment discrimination.

At a Tuesday meeting, the board of trustees voted to protect current township employees from such discrimination, and they will be further discussing a similar ordinance for all township residents. Supporters of the LGBT community lined the walls of the meeting room to comment, and express their support for the plan.

Right now, it's legal in Michigan for someone to be fired or denied a job because of their sexual orientation. There are over 20 communities with local rules against that.
