PostHeaderIcon Will crime skyrocket if this continues?

Question by Rookerman: Will crime skyrocket if this continues?
Out-of-work job applicants told unemployed need not apply.

The last thing someone who is unemployed needs to be told is that they shouldn’t even apply for the limited number of job openings that are available. But some companies and recruiters are doing just that.

Employment experts say they believe companies are increasingly interested only in applicants who already have a job.

“I think it is more prevalent than it used to be,” said Rich Thompson, vice president of learning and performance for Adecco Group North America, the world’s largest staffing firm. “I don’t have hard numbers, but three out of the last four conversations I’ve had about openings, this requirement was brought up.”

Some job postings include restrictions such as “unemployed candidates will not be considered” or “must be currently employed.” Those explicit limitations have occasionally been removed from listings when an employer or recruiter is questioned by the media though.

That’s what happened with numerous listings for grocery store managers throughout the Southeast posted by a South Carolina recruiter, Latro Consulting.

After CNNMoney called seeking comments on the listings last week, the restriction against unemployed candidates being considered came down. Latro Consulting refused to comment when contacted.

Sony Ericsson, a global phone manufacturer that was hiring for a new Georgia facility, also removed a similar restriction after local reporters wrote about it. According to reports, a Sony Ericsson spokesperson said that a mistake had been made.

But even if companies don’t spell out in a job listing that they won’t consider someone who currently doesn’t have a job, experts said that unemployed applicants are typically ruled out right off the bat.

“Most executive recruiters won’t look at a candidate unless they have a job, even if they don’t like to admit to it,” said Lisa Chenofsky Singer, a human resources consultant from Millburn, NJ, specializing in media and publishing jobs.

She said when she proposes candidates for openings, the first question she is often asked by a recruiter is if they currently have a job. If the answer is no, she’s typically told the unemployed candidate won’t be interviewed.

“They think you must have been laid off for performance issues,” she said, adding that this is a “myth” in a time of high unemployment.

It is not against the law for companies to exclude the unemployed when trying to fill positions, but Judy Conti, a lobbyist for the National Employment Law Project, said the practice is a bad one.

“Making that kind of automatic cut is senseless; you could be missing out on the best person of all,” she said. “There are millions of people who are unemployed through no fault of their own. If an employer feels that the best qualified are the ones already working, they have no appreciation of the crisis we’re in right now.”

Conti added that firms that hire unemployed job seekers could also benefit from a recently-passed tax break that essentially exempts them from paying the 6.2% of the new hire’s wages in Social Security taxes for the rest of this year.

Thompson said he also thinks ruling out the unemployed is a bad idea. But he said that part of the problem is that recruiters and human resource departments are being overwhelmed with applications for any job opening that is posted. So they’re looking for any short-cuts to get the list of applicants to consider down to a more manageable size.

“It’s a tough process to determine which unemployed applicants were laid off even though they brought value to their company and which ones had performance issues,” he said. “I understand the notion. But there’s the top x percent of unemployed candidates who are very viable and very valuable. You just have to do the work to find them.”

PostHeaderIcon Is this a good thesis for an argumentative essay or is it too broad?

Question by Lisa M: Is this a good thesis for an argumentative essay or is it too broad?
My original thesis was:

“The media’s perception of the ideal body has harmful effects on people, young and old, and can lead to eating disorders.”

My professor (this is for Eng Comp II in college) said this was too broad and also didn’t showcase my opinion or side of the argument.

Here’s my revised thesis that I plan on sending in today:

“Magazine advertisements and social media websites’ perception of the ideal body has harmful effects on teens and can lead to eating disorders.”

Is that still to broad? Could I narrow it down to something like how Pro Ana/Mia sites outright promote eating disorders?

Best answer:

Answer by Jules
Yeah. Narrowing it down to Pro Ana/Mia might be better.

Do people even still read magazines anymore? I know I don’t. I just go on tumblr and pinterest.

There are a lot of articles on pro ana tumblrs. Last year, tumblr changed its terms and conditions so they could help get rid of pro ana tumblr. it only made a fraction of a dent though because tumblr is so free and there is no way they could get rid of them. It didn’t help in my opinion. But this way it shows that they do not promote people to make pro ana tumblrs.

There are also a lot of videos on youtube that have huge views.

You could also use quotes from tumblr and comments and quotes from youtube to support your case.

PostHeaderIcon Does this new insight cause you think less harshly of Israel?

Question by Al Buquerque: Does this new insight cause you think less harshly of Israel?
In 1948 just before Arabs invaded the newly formed Israeli state, they told the Palestinians to leave their homes to make way for the Arab armies. Palestinians were told they would be able to return in a couple of weeks. More than one million Palestinians listened and became refugees when the Arab armies were defeated. These are the people now in the West Bank and Gaza.
If they had stayed they would now be Israeli citizens.
Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg as to how the Arabs have screwed the Palestinians for 65 years.
FYI-This is 100% accurate and documented and easy information to find.
