Bullshit, bring some skills to the table and employers will fight over you no matter what you look like. And pay well too.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1139492



Geez I have tons of experience what also include management exp as well as a degree with honors from a VERY good university and owning my own company. In a market like this and esp. where I live, it really doesn't matter unfortunately. Employers are not fighint over anyone right now, more like the other way around or did you just stick your head out of a whole after several years.

One thing I have noticed just as a consumer in the public sector, the people that have jobs - a majority don't do a very good job, i.e. fast food restaurants and the like. I applied to Wendy's and was never even called so what does that tell ya. Many who have job security, one specific individual I worked with at the job in question, spent hours a day getting her online degree during company time. I don't have patience for this type of behavior because I know my work ethic is impeccable in comparison.

Another irony is the college I attended instilled at its very core in its curriculum, students, faculty and graduates - diversity and multiculturalism.

to add another interesting phrase I often heard as I dodged prostitutes, crack dealers, gansters and bullets while living in Oakland, CA that seems to fit here, "Homey don't play that..." perhaps I should have used that phrase in my interview with HR.

The days of labor are done in the U.S. You need to get in school and do, Aeronautical Engineering, Bio chemistry,
or many other high end fields to make it. Sales are good to,
My kids make well over 100gs in sale a year in thier 20's.
They work hard and like what they do. Treat people good and get repeat customers..
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1139492


Unfortunately, not everyone can be a Aeronautical engineer, and if they could there would be abundance of them which would lead to unemployment. Look at the nursing and teaching fields, its not as easy anymore to get work like it was ten years ago. I know, I have a buddy in nursing. Just saying that when they destroyed manufacturing in the us, it was the start of the downfall of many other businesses. You can not function as a productive country with most jobs paying 7.40/hr.

Then... nothing... until my boss (a caucasian woman) wrote me an email yesterday telling me they had hired someone else, a person with a latino/mexican name. I was shocked. There is not one person in HR who is white and they make the decisions for employment. My boss told me she was "sorry."

I am unsure what to think at this point in time.

 Quoting: Spazz



What to think?

DISCRIMINATION LAWSUIT.

You lost out because HR is run by HISPANICS.

Do not feel guilty about it....screw them as hard as they screwed you!

SUE!...and you will win $$$.

Re: I didn't get the job because I am caucasian/white. Your thoughts.
I have been without work for over a year 1/2 due to this very issue. I have been on several interviews where in the job description it doesn't say or ask if you are bilingual (aka speaka the Espanol)? so I apply. I get the interview, but am always asked that famous question, "do you speak any other languages"? when I say no, the interview is then-over. So for the past year 1/2 I am still desperately looking. Oh, and for those that say go and get a "temp" job, we'll in CA there are none of those either. I have looked, called, networked, etc. with no luck. I have other "white" friends who are going through the same BS, so yeah, it makes a person a bit bitter, frustrated, sad and hopeless. Until you are in this same situation, don't put someone else down for seeing the world as "not too friendly to white people anymore" that's all I'm saying...

Re: I didn't get the job because I am caucasian/white. Your thoughts.
Several things:

Employers in America favor young employees. The older you are, the more difficult it'll be to get hired. Employers are afraid of the liability statistically older people have, especially healthcare premiums.

The federal government strongly encourages employers hire 'Minorities' and gives financial incentives such as tax breaks, etc., For many employers, especially large companies, this is their bottom line: it's cheaper to hire a 'Minority' because the government subsidizes minority hiring.

Many private and semi-private [publicly financed] organizations actively lobby companies to hire minorities, threaten lawsuits, boycotts, etc. if they don't reach 'Benchmarks', i.e. quotas. I'm not aware of any such lobbying for white people.

In a nutshell: if you're especially working class white, and a male, you're screwed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 810905


I had no problem getting a job after being laid off and I'm white and older. Of course there is nothing I haven't done except maybe be president.lol Having something to fall back on (trade, good business sense always helped in bad times though.It paid the bills) People are generally lazy especially minorities and white trash.

Buddy, you are correct in all your assumptions/suspicions.

I had a white mother who worked for years for the Federal Gov., and she constantly complained that she was discriminated against due to her skin color (top computer programmer for FDA/H&HS). I felt her pain, because her strong German genes came through on me--Blonde hair and blue eyes.

I have a mixed family and we constantly laugh at how funny it is when my Spanish (from Spain thank god) cousin applies for school loans or jobs, with what ease he gets everything and the kitchen sink thrown at him. He recently applied for a small business loan (SBA Administration) for a gag, and he got approved before the ink had time to dry on his application.

I feel your pain! Because I understand Spanish, I here Mexicans bad-mouthing white people all the time.

Sincerely,

Torn (50% Anglo/50% Hispanic)

As far as working hard... being (50% Anglo/ 50% Hispanic) and things will happen, well it's not that easy. I worked full time, while supporting a family while attending a very competitive state university and achieving a 3.6 GPA and couldn't get a Grant to save my life. I applied for 4 years doing everything necessary to look like a model student-but nothing! I was eventually told that I made too much money. Ahhh... barely making it from paycheck to paycheck is not making too much. Scored a 37 on the MCAT and got zilch interest.

The EEOC protects certain "classes" of people, and White Males are NOT protected.

Oddly, almost EVERYONE ELSE IS protected as being of a certain "class".

Even if a Black boss said, I am firing you cause I hate your lily white skin, you have NO CASE, you as a White Male, are a second-class citizen.

You might be able to sue such a guy in a civil suit, but would get NOWHERE, regarding "discrimination".
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 558159


You're telling a bald face lie and shame on you for trying to perpetuate a lie. A family friend went to EEOC when his East Indian boss said in front of him and other employees , "he was a dirty faced white man who deserved the crummy jobs he gave him". EEOC nearly drove that guy out of business with a settlement, fines, and penalties. If you have a case EEOC will climb onto the bandwagon and give the other party hell but it all hinges on whether or not you have witnesses and evidence.

Is white the new minority?

You've got it my friend. That's what happens now with nothing but MINORITIES at the gates, running the show and slipping your resume to the bottom of the stack. We currently have a black female HR rep working for the company I'm with and she was previously fired from another related company for doing just that, slipping them to the bottom of the stack. Obama and his ilk love being in such positions of power. Government contracts shove them up company butts so I'm afraid so, You/Me we are now vanilla popsicles.

LOL< It's kinda funny because the FDA just went and shut down a huge Pharmaceutical company for all kinds of violations here where I live. They have since opened it back up. Over 300 people were fired! Upper mgmt and middle management and every lab technician was also fired as well! It was told to me by a mechanic who works there that "they only want a certain group of people there." His words exactly!

Now they have ex-FDA agents going around watching and retraining everyone there. They are also on 10-12 hr shifts. But i have it from the inside that they do not believe anything will change or get better. They will continue down the same old road.
I was discriminated against by the temp agency who contracts for them. They hire every black person that comes through the doors and push to make them permanent first instead of trying to equalize it. I have seen it first hand.the mechanics themselves told me while I was there, that you have to be a certain color to work here. And it's very true.

I had a job interview with a Community college in Parma, Ohio (Tri-C)a few weeks ago. I am well qualified for the position except, I'm white! During the interview the Dean and the administrator (neither who are white)kept talking about diversity in culture and how you would have to relate to people from different backgrounds. After not being asked back for the second interview I realized what happened. I didn't get a second interview because, I'm white.
