"Ban the box" may lead to more racial discrimination

For California residents who have recently been released from prison, finding a job can be a challenge. They have criminal records that could be found by potential employers and gaps in their employment histories that may be difficult to explain at interviews. In an effort to help ex-prisoners avoid discrimination while they look for work, some cities and states have instituted 'ban the box" policies for job applications.

LGBT is a protected class in California

When the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that all U.S. same-sex couples could marry it was a day of celebration amid a long march for recognition of LGBT issues. It's true that marriage rights are part of the equalization process but there is still progress to be made. Each state has its own statutes regarding protected classes.
