Employers who are discriminating against potential candidates by running credit checks, basing their decision on race and gender, and judging resumes that do not list a college degrees, or exact experience required and not selecting people who are unemployed. This type of discrimination is insulting job seekers, leaving people frustrated, hopeless, angry, and deceived. The amount of resumes sent to potential employers and the feedback that is received is next to little or nothing. Even people with college degrees have trouble getting a job because they lack experience.The reason they lack experience is because they were in school. It seems as though job seekers are backed into a corner and are only given a job based on either luck of the draw, knowing someone, or the very few that fit the requirements. We must make it illegal for:

  • Employers to request outrageous amounts of experience for simple job tasks like answering a phone or any easy clerical position
  • Employers to dismiss a resume based on tremendous amounts of lacking experience and being alive only a short amount of time on this planet.
  • Their gender, race, homosexuality, orientation, economic stance, and not being of minority background. (no racism intended, its just another reason employers don't hire based on ethnicity) 
  • Dismissing candidates based on lack of college education and extending college requirements such as Master's and other irrelevant amounts of education for simple job positions such as administrative duties, clerical and secretarial positions. 
  • Checking a job seekers credit score, which is illegal in the State of New York, and dismissing the candidate because of the results from the credit score. This is illegal and has been placed as a law by legislatures.
  • Illegal to discriminiate based on Credit Score- By State
  • Laws in Effect

Stand up for your rights to find work and to not be discriminated against by employers. If you are in this situation, used to be in this situation, or know someone who is, you can understand how frustrating job searching is. We all want to be a part of society and to work to our potential, to make money, and to live a well deserved life. We cannot achieve this if we are being discriminated because of harsh requirements, subjected to gender and race questions, meeting ridiculous requirements, and pushed aside for not meeting higher educational standards.
