    ISSUES: Rep. Allen Boyd

    FOR

    LGBTQ

    The LBGTQ community faces discrimination by some businesses and institutions based on traditional family ideals and religious views. These views have continued to evolve rapidly in the past decade, and there is a shift toward bipartisan support of protections of LGBTQ individuals among voters. source

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    There is a rise in republican voter interest in protecting the rights of LGBTQ individuals. Over half support extra protections to avoid discrimination in workplaces, businesses, and attaining housing. The protection of businesses and institutions based on religious grounds is weakening as religious views evolve. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats feel a person’s identity should not interfere with their ability to work, vote, marry, attain housing, or other basic life tasks. They focus on equal rights in all areas of life, and do not feel religious beliefs should be a factor when businesses choose to hire or serve an individual. source


    FOR

    Unions

    Unions are groups that act as a middle man to negotiate employee rights and compensations with businesses.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans feel that unions limit innovation and strong-arm businesses into deals that limit growth and impede on employment opportunities. They prefer to focus on right to work laws and incentives to allow businesses and employees to negotiate benefits and compensations without a middle man. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats feel unions are essential to protecting workers rights. Their focus is making it possible for people to form or join a union regardless of where they work. source


    AGAINST
