It's not just Jobs though, it's being denied services and housing/property among other things, maybe that would fix the workplace but apart from that we would need to be a federally protected class
............But we are not a protected class, so people can fire us.....

Laws do restrict human behaviors, Doc. C'mon.
I'm not talking about legislating "being nice." You know that.

Been suggested by wiser men and women than I for 4000 years or so, give or take.
It's not a matter, again, of merely "empowering the state based on who I like" ... I am not even the central deciding factor.
We decide these matters TOGETHER within our system of government.
Government is not always the big bad. When it functions within the will of the People, to the general Welfare, it is one of the highest and best functions of human society. We've done decently, not perfectly, with that high goal in this country.
