Discrimination at the Workplace
Numerous businesses are hiring people based on their appearance. The Today Show talked about this survey that was done to see how important your looks are when you’re looking for a job. According to the survey, “looks are more important than education.” This utterly stunned me. Just because someone is skinnier or has better hygiene doesn’t mean they’re more suitable for the position. The only thing that matters it that: they perform all of the tasks that they were given, do things on time, and are courteous to their coworkers. Who cares if they look better? Our society is so caught up in material things and the exterior of a person when we should be caring about the interior.
