ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on employment discrimination among LGBT people in the federal, state, and local government sector in the U.S. It examines the effects of LGBT rights, labor force, executive orders, and public opinion on LGBT representation in various sectors and profession including managers, teachers, police, and government workers. The study concludes that LGBT people do not face employment discrimination in the public sector since Americans have supported equal employment rights including those for LGBT people in the U.S.
