Preying On The Job Seeker 19

Twice the past month on jobs I applied for - one at a good-old American telecommunications company, and the other a city government job - the self-identification page for race threw me for a double-take:

The first drop-down box for ethnicity is either “Hispanic/Latino” or “Not Hispanic/Latino.”

Being a red-blooded Caucasian/White American male, born, living and looking for work in the United States, I selected “Not Hispanic or Latino,” then “White,” and finished filling out the forms, which wound up being an utter waste of time.

I got “thanks but no thanks” denial emails minutes after applying, surprised at how fast that was. 

Maybe some MACHINE scanned the forms and found a field or two that automatically disqualified me.

Kinda makes one think that Latinos and Hispanics are the majority workforce, and/or preferred job candidates.

God help the WHITE WORKING MAN.
