Discrimination on the basis of income and on the basis of family status are both illegal.

"In the Sale and Rental of Housing: No one may take any of the following actions based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status or handicap ..."

No mention of job or income in that.

So, I'd say discriminating based on familial status IS illegal.
But I don't know of a law that says you can't limit your rental to just people in <job category>. (I believe there is a complex that just rents to teachers near me, or at least that was their plan)
