Equal Opportunities


What is peoples views of the equalities minister Harriet Harman’s suggestion that legislation should be introduced that if two candidates were equally qualified for a position, employers would be able to reject the white person or the man in favour of a black person or a woman.

Personally I belief that this is blatant racism and sexism and a person should get a job on the ability to do the job not what race, creed or gender they are.

In South Africa this policy of positive discrimination is driving many firms into the ground as the people being given the jobs are in many cases incapable of doing the job.
