Understanding Equality and Discrimination in the Workplace

Many a job hunter knows of this all too familiar line at the bottom of the job posting. "We are an equal opportunity company. We do not discriminate against age, race, sex, religion and sexual orientation."

Some job postings already violate this sacred and legal covenant by putting in a line like "Applicant must not be more than XX years old". What's the deal with that? These guys might as well put in the basic pay on the page at least they can still grant respect to the potential applicant.

Evident in some foreign companies that outsource or offshore their operations to some distant God-forsaken but surprisingly more talented place is the corporate firewall hosted in the home country. I've had experiences and even feedbacks from friends from other companies that there are sites that are banned and tagged as inappropriate. Out of curiosity I tried loading a particular out-of-the-ordinary religious site one day. I particularly loaded sites that pertain to Satanism, homosexuality, witchcraft, paganism, paedophelia (all radical paradigms) and even entering invalid domains with a ".ph". Low and behold, the majority of sites were banned. Questionably they were tagged as either "spirituality", "occult", "pornography" and "alternative living". Not so surprisingly, I don't find any Christian sites being banned.

The company can argue that these sites contain "inappropriate content". But what defines "inappropriate"? Religious morals? Sounds more more on the inclination of Christian morals. You don't judge another persons ideals by basing it on the company's majority or the another individual's morals. A majority-Christian company has NO RIGHT to judge a Muslim's or a Satanist's cultural practices and ideals based on its majority. A straight company has NO RIGHT to comment on how disgusting gays' or lesbians' preferences and actions can be based on their single-minded, conservative and straight CHRISTIAN paradigm. To do so would directly violate these individuals' human rights.

Superiors can also argue that I shouldn't be surfing the web but doing my job in the first place. Well, if these morons didn't allow Internet access to everyone then that wouldn't be a problem in the first place! I enjoy looking for flaws in companies just as they relish the idiotic and sociopathic habit of doing the same.

Lastly, what's the deal with banning a .ph site and classifying it as porn?! Listen clearly, you foreign retards! If you don't like the idea of working with us then DON'T COME HERE! Go back to whatever batch of overpaid employees you crawled away from! WE WILL SURVIVE WITHOUT YOUR DROPPING DOLLARS! What the hell, ey? You bitch and whine about ALMOST EVERYTHING! You might as well pay us big for being bitched and moaned by you. Oh, right, you can't afford it! You never could afford it back home anyway.

Equality is yet another myth in these corporations. Politics is the real currency here. Whoever kisses the most assess generally go to the top of the food chain. It's no wonder why products continue to degenerate with time. The retards are running the company and the real talents have left.

Companies claim of equal opportunities and an environment free of discrimination but the subtle indirect signs of their protest is written and enacted in many ways that we even notice to see.

Simply put, these companies claim to be these things but they have absolutely no idea what equality and cultural acceptance really is. Even as an individual I wouldn't dare prejudice someone if I didn't understand how their lives work.

Unless they're planning on running a company full of mindless robots, those two claims they make will and forever hold untrue.
