I remeber getting asked this in Business Management.

To clarify btw, a linesman is not the sport linesman but an electrical linesman... the one who climbs polls to fix wires and stuff.

My Answer:

  • A Black - Yes {Reason} - Capable of doing a job just like any other race.
  • Disabled - Nope {Reason} - Pretty obvious, i would want a job done properly and not have to worry about there problems.
  • Retarded - Maybe {Reason} - Hey, if he can do the job then whats the probably if he's a little wacky.
  • Gay - Yes {Reason} - Being gay shouldn't discriminate people from getting jobs.
  • Tranvestite - Yes {Reason} In a big business, i wouldn't care but if i had to work alongside them, i wouldn't.
  • 60 Year Old - Maybe {Reason} Might be vunlerable to accidents or too slow etc.

I do employ blacks, no biggie they work hard just like others that work for me. We even have one disabled person (well he is missing his legs), great worker and fun to be around kinda keeps smiles on everyone, as far as gay, we dont ask that on the application so I could care less is we have gays there or not, they are people too. And as far as being older goes, thats poo we have 2 guys there that are both over 60 and they are just fine, and both accident free for the last 4 yrs, the on and only thing that has happend is that old Carl as we call him, cut is finger and needed a stitch or 2.. And mentally ill people we dont have but not cuz we dont want them, being we deal with crane making and trench support welding, I am almost sure we have nothing they could do, but I could be wrong, maybe office type work but I have never had to deal with it yet.

"A Black, Disabled, Retarded, Gay, Female,Transvestite, 60 year old worker for a lines" :lol: No, I doubt that would work too well. Seperate some of those qualities and they'd have a chance.

Yeah working with that type of power, I dont think I would even try that. Seen some nasty stuff on tv. Can you say burnt to a crisp lol.. Some places all them people would have a fine time doing a job, but a few of them, working at that job,, NO, dont see why a women would have a hard time with it, I am most certain there are female linesmen or person you could call it lol..

You forgot fat people, handicapped people, ugly people, blind people, deaf people, etc...All those people can be discriminated too. The only valid reason to employ someone is if he/she fits to the job. What job are you talking about, Riot? I wouldn't employ a blind person to fly a plane, but this should not prevent him to do something else.

Black - Yes Disabled - Maybe, depends how they were disabled. Retarded - No, stupid people around electricity with the chance to mess things up. No. Gay - Yes Transvestite - Yes 60 Year Old - Maybe, provided they passed the fitness test.

Poll's kinda slanted so I ain't voting.

That was a really distasteful thing to say.

I'm not going to run the chance that they'll fuck up and fry themselves to a crisp. Maybe that's not politically correct but it's the responsible thing to do. As their employer I could not ethically put them in that position; if they were to be employed in some other area where they had demonstrated a competence and mistakes weren't likely to endanger their lives or the lives of others then I'd have no problem with employing them. But the last thing I, they, or anyone else needs is to have them hanging from a poll with a few thousand volts running through them twitching like a frog, or pavement pizza, or any of the other multitude of dangers that can come up when someone isn't able to adapt to a situation quickly. I was a Petty Officer Cadet for close on two and a half years, when someone is under your authority you are responsible for their well being, and if you're being ethical that means you don't put them in situations that they may be less able than others to cope with if you can possibly help it, especially when that might put them or others in danger. It makes economic sense and it makes moral sense, so I'll do it, whether a few people find it distasteful or not.
