I don’t remember hearing anything about this study, nor that the results were in, but I thought others might want to check it out.
The key findings are:
- Survey respondents reported twice the unemployment rate of the population at large.
- 97% of respondents reported harassment on the job.
- 47% reported an adverse job situation (firing, lack of raise/promotion, not hired).
- 15% of transgender people lived on $10k a year or less.
I expect my usual skeptics to be surprised by these stats, and to want to know more about how the survey worked & who responded. It was done by NCTE and The Task Force, and included participants from all 50 states.
