If you are contracted by the city you are, by definition, doing a city project. And I see nothing wrong with requiring those that do business with the city to adopt the same nondiscrimination policies as the city itself.
No, it isn't "imposing on private business" because guess what? Those businesses are free to not bid on city contracts if they want to keep in place their implicitly bigoted policies. Isn't that — freedom — what conservatives always clamor for?
What makes all this so funny is that Metro would essentially be implementing the same sort of discriminatory practices on these businesses [by not hiring them] as [these businesses] already do on their employees — and [the businesses] are the ones moaning and groaning about "fairness."
Give me a break.
