Fortunate are those who have not encountered discrimination anywhere! Actually, they might not be fortunate, they could just be delusional!
In the real world, discrimination takes place all the time and everywhere!
Are you good looking? If you are, you are lucky because you are assumed to be good in many other things even though you might not be. Well, would we rather be around good looking people or ugly people? Now, be honest.
Are you a man? If you are, you are lucky because in jobs which both sexes are able to take on, employers would favour men to women.
Men don't get pregnant. They don't have to take leave to give birth and take care of babies as a consequence.
Are you young? If you are, you are lucky because you have more mileage left in you than older people. Generally, employers prefer to have younger workers.
Are you well connected? If you are, you are lucky because who you know is more important than what you know! This is the bombshell!
There are probably many other ways in which people suffer discrimination: racial discrimination, religious discrimination, weight discrimination, class discrimination or even political affiliation discrimination!
If we are receiving the shorter end of the stick, of course, we can complain all we want about how unfair things are. However, the real world is never fair.
If we feel that we are a victim of discrimination, what can we do? Look for greener pastures, I suppose, as discrimination is probably hard to eliminate.
If we feel that we have been wrongfully dismissed, we could approach the Ministry of Manpower and here is the link:
Claims, Complaints and Appeals.
That discrimination exists in all its forms should be one of the first lessons we learn in life unless we do not live in the real world.
