We Discriminate (BLATANTLY) in the Philippines
I don't know where to start with this one. Should I blast at the US corporation first? Or should I go straight into my rants about the Philippines again.
I'll take it easy on the Philippines this time. Let's hit this US corporation, this evil beast they call Wendy's.
I'm not sure if Wendy's America is aware of this situation. Probably not. For if they were, they would definitely pull this job post. In fact, they probably would not have allowed this to happen.
I'm sure y'all know what I'm talking about by now; I shall not be condescending. But in case there is that one person who happened to stumble on this site and has no clue what the heck I'm saying, well it's in reference to this picture. Can you read discrimination all over it? So what's so discriminating about this, some might say? What's so wrong about the job post?
18-22 years old? What about those that just turned 23? Can you say age discrimination? Sure, there will always be age discrimination. We won't allow nine year olds to work in a chemical lab. But 18-22 at Wendy's? I need not expound.
Male and female height requirement? Can you say "little people" discrimination? My 5'1 and a half sister cannot even qualify for this position, even though she's really good workin at fast foods in the US. Ha ha. OK, there's still humor in this. But damn it? Why Philippines? Why do we allow this? Or, why do we do this to ourselves?
2nd year college? Good lord! Who goes to college aspiring to be a Wendy's crew member? I need not expound here.
Can anyone say US lawsuits? Does anyone here in the Phil wanna have a class action lawsuit against this mighty US corporation? This is a major lawsuit waiting to happen.
So, Wendy's Greenbelt One. You better watch out. I'm not done with you.
I'm guilty. I've eaten here, even though I see this poster. Shit. But I make sure I ask the worker that's in front of the register. Are you at least 5'2"? Are you between the age of 18 and 22? Do you have at least 2nd year college experience? If you aswered no to anyone of these questions, I'm reporting you to your manager! If you answered yes to all, I'm still reporting you to your manager. For not having a "pleasing personality." Will sarcasm work? We'll try.
Any US lawyers seeing this post?
If you wanna read more, here's my letter to Wendy's corporate @ http://www.wendys.com/feedback.jsp:
I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. I am in the Philippines, and I visited your Wendy's inside Greenbelt One in Makati.
I am appalled by what I saw. Blatant Discrimination. Discrimination that we would not tolerate in the United States. Discrimination that would be in-your-face illegal.
I need not expound. I have a picture of the Job Posting they have on the glass window of this Discrimination. Can you say lawsuit ahead?
Please take care of this issue immediately. If you wish to see the photo, I already posted it in my blog @.
