So ... do they all expand their boards by 3, or do they fire people to make room, and if you get fired explicitly for the diversity hire, can you sure for discrimination?

Or, if you aren't making bank in the company do you then get mad that the 1% got expanded to a bunch of women who were only hired because they were women and being a man, you couldn't get your piece of that pie, especially if you can prove you have all the same qualifications except a uterus?

Even more, what if one of the diversity hires if a woman with a penis instead of a vagina, and you are the woman/woman who could have taken that spot ... do you sue because a bio-man took your spot in defiance of the law even though as a trans, the person in question "feels" like a woman?

The movie Tootsie comes to mind. A movie ahead of it's time.

So they have the same problem we do? Sounds like all the systems are the same then. Thanks for pointing that out.

When are women and minorities going to get tired of being told that they are not capable of succeeding without assistance?

Distracted by what? This is literally the only time I'll ever think about this.


You fell for this media driven attempt to divide us!

When will you learn?

And capitalism is where businesses and corporations own the government and pay politicians to make them as much profit as possible. Seeing as we're using caricatures here I thought I'd give it a go too.


As for the OP, I think this is stupid. Why should a company be forced to hire a woman over a man if the man is better qualified? Really dumb idea.


What a troll.

Business,corporations aka those public companies are traded public that pass on ownership rights through stocks.

Shareholders get a say, and profit right along.

Ruger shareholders just voted money out of their GD pockets saying the company needs to do 'more' against gun violence.

Dang grambler, I can almost feel your hate from here.

Peace to you good sir and I hope you have a great sunday night.

Hate?

There is not one person on ats I hate, not even close

Sorry if it came off that way

I don’t mind people making fun of me at all

I can feel the hate directed at me. I'm even lucky enough to have stalkers following my post so they can make some snarky adolescent comment. Bless their hearts... even some of the mods...but I've learned to temper my responses so I don't get banned again.

Sadly, my clever sarcasm goes right over their heads.

Watch the responses to this post...you'll see...

I'm tired of it. I like the challenge of doing on my own, but at the same time, it's also a good gig if you can get it handed to you. And that's how a lot of people will look at it.

How is it any different than collecting the monthly government "paycheck"?

Incorporate in a different state. Aren't private and publicly traded companies different?

Perhaps you take random internet happenings and interactions too seriously?
Don’t know about your ciricumstance but I also get a lot of the same people replying to my threads and posts I just assume this is ATS and many of us have similiar interests.

I can only speak for myself

I don’t hate you or anyone else here

I passionately disagree with people, have made fun of people, and otjer things

But I don’t hate anyone here

Poking fun at a poster isn’t the same as hating them

But sometimes I guess it could be misinterpreted as that

All this tells me is that California politicians don't think women have the skill and tenacity necessary to make it on their own merits, so it must be made into law.

IMO, this would make me feel that I didn't get the position based on my merits, but rather, based on a kind of diminished value policy. You're not good enough, but we're going to give it to you anyway because you're a woman.

This same sort of stupid # has been going on for many years with race - where I live if you can write in 'african american' on a job application you're guaranteed to get hired for pretty much any office job - huge corporations have rules about what percentage of your local staff must be certain races, and around these parts we just don't have certain races. HR doesn't care, the person with the race needed to make quota gets hired over the person with the correct qualifications every time.

Cali is just extending that nonsense to gender. Soon each board will need someone who identifies as a carrot, too.

I thought gender was supposed to be fluid now. Or at least nothing more than self perception. So really, what is CA trying to say? That whole state is getting to be the "Hold my beer.." of absurdities.

No, I'm talking about the veiled physical threats and some not so veiled sent to my in box.
My favorite was some guy telling me he would stick my keyboard up my a$$ so far, I would sh** semi colons.

topic....
I resent being told to meet any kind of minorities or sexual quota. I'm perfectly capable of wreaking my businesses and running it into the ground, all by myself, thank you very much!

Rude but kind of funny

Hey I have been told in a thread that as a trump supporter I may need to be killed from the good of the world

Believe it or not I feel like that user and I are kind of friends now!

Anyways I will quit derailing
