Why are Republicans Opposed to Discrimination at Work?

If, as William points out, Republicans do not favor legislation prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation in employment, why do they express distaste for such discrimination at work?

The answer could come down to simple economics.  If a worker is producing money for the company or industry and is the best one for the job, then, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation, that person should be promoted.  This kind of economic-based logic seems to hold quite a bit of clout with Republicans, who tend to be fiscal conservatives. 

Just a thought . . .
