Protection for Unemployed

There are an estimated 14 million people unemployed in the United States today.  When applying for a job, this detail matters greatly.  There are citizens being discriminated against when they check off the unemployed box on a job application.

President Obama has plans to change this.  He is proposing a piece of legislation be passed to protect the unemployed from such discrimination.  The proposal would make such decisions unlawful for ‘a business of 15 or more employees’ to reject an applicant based on his/her unemployment status, as reported by the Seattle Times.

If anyone suspects they have fallen victim to such practices, the legislation would allow them the privilege of suing that employer.  The law would also ban any kind of advertisement that specified unemployed citizens need not apply.

With Obama’s new plan, the unemployed would become another protected category, on the same playing field as race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.
