One of the most obnoxious things in it (of many and he had a long, long list) is there is a provision for turning the unemployed into a protected class like minorities or homosexuals. If you are unemployed and you get turned down for a job, you can sue the potential employer if you think you were discriminated against because you are unemployed.”””””
Let’s see if I understand this:
I have ONE job opening. There are 50 applicants for this ONE job. ALL 50 are currently UNEMPLOYED.
No matter which ONE of the 50 applicants I choose to employ, I can be sued by ANY or ALL of the remaining 49 because they can do so based upon the language in this ‘bill’????
My ad for ONE new employee is no longer going to be out there- online or in print or anywhere. I will instantly withdraw such an ad for ONE employee & NEVER place another.
Hiring ONE & fighting 49 potential lawsuits just isn’t worth it.
Barry—Michelle- Ayers— & Soros sure know how to stop the gears in the USa, don’t they?
Where is John Galt???
Of course, currently employed people are not part of that protected class.
So if you already have a job, I could recruit you to come work for me at a lower risk than interviewing people who are unemployed.
This is a great idea if you want to kill hiring of unemployed workers.
