Equity hiring signals the demise of a resourceful, responsible, moral society.
If you hire someone based on their religion or race regardless of whether their skills and acumen meet the criteria you have for the job you’re having them step into, you’re signing your own business’s death sentence.
Long ago, certain laws were passed that forbade discrimination in the workplace. This meant you had to be an “equal opportunity employer,” or there’d be hell to pay. These laws were sound. People of ANY color or creed could be considered for a position in a company, based on their MERIT. In short, a white person being chosen over a black or Hispanic person (or vice-versa), had to be a better qualified applicant for the job being offered. This practice is called, meritocracy.
There was nothing to challenge, in terms of hiring for the government, entertainment industry, or any other field of endeavor, for that matter. Some southernmost states have been slow to catch up with this concept, but overall, bias and racism have virtually vanished from America’s employment and professional advancement criteria.
That is, until we got a puppet foisted upon us, who’s as senile and fossilized an excuse for a US President, as anyone could ever have imagined would be sitting in the Oval office, much less, making horrific policies that are destroying the nation he’s sworn to protect!
There are myriad injustices and unconstitutional allowances the Biden-time admin has made in the name of ‘The Green New Deal,’ yet, his “Build Back Better” slogan has made nothing better ANYWHERE in the US, and has surely weakened our position with foreign governments to where they have no respect left for our once mighty nation.
How could they?? We have homosexuals, transgendered, prejudiced, incompetent, ineffectual people bestowed with the responsibility of running various departments in charge of our infrastructure, and they’re failing miserably at EVERYTHING, except being the defective, irresponsible, unskilled humans that they are, who care NOTHING about rising to their excellence and EARNING the job title they’ve been ‘gifted.’
Sadly, the dismal failures in these folks is not their fault. They were obviously NOT parented correctly, and have developed no sense of pride in their abilities or performance of various tasks they were hired to do (take Kamala Harris, for example).
I am grateful my dad instilled in me the strong desire to rise to my excellence. It MATTERS to me that I do a good job in every realm of my life. I am not perfectionistic, but I am proud of myself and how well I perform various tasks~ whether it’s my professional acumen that’s involved, or not.
I guess if I believed I’d be hired solely on the color of my skin or how young or pretty I looked, I wouldn’t have had to develop any skills, character, ethics or even a decent personality, when I entered the job force in my early 20’s.
And this my friends, is what’s painfully ABSENT in Joe Biden’s Clown World administration, today.
