The Atlantic – Obama’s Misguided Effort to Protect the Unemployed From Hiring Bias

Filed under: Diversity,Management,Opinions/Blogs |

From The Atlantic:

Is This Really A Problem? (No.)

“For starters, we have little evidence that this sort of discrimination is playing a significant role in hiring. Yes, prolonged unemployment is a problem. But the reason for this is due to the lack of job openings paired with a skills mismatch. While there might be a handful of instances where employers are shunning the unemployed, no one is suggesting that discrimination is playing a major role in the U.S. unemployment problem.”
