Discrimination (4)

You know that Types of Discrimination video? Well, for direct discrimination, there was a man who talked about hiring a new employee—and who was against the idea of hiring another woman. His justification? “Now the last thing I need is another woman who might go and get pregnant.”

Talk about direct discrimination. Not only does he imply that it wouldn’t be practical to hire a woman—“I know you want to employ more women, but can we be practical for a moment?”—but he thinks that if they hired another woman, then she might “go and get pregnant.” Obviously, he doesn’t have a high opinion of woman.

The irony of it, though? He is telling all this to a fellow woman employee.
