Do you think this is true? Do most Americans believe in these things? Do you? Which ones?

A large majority of the American people consistently support the following agenda:

  • Tax the rich and corporations
  • End the wars, bring the troops home, cut military spending
  • Protect the social safety net, strengthen Social Security and improved Medicare for all
  • End corporate welfare for oil companies and other big business interests
  • Transition to a clean energy economy, reverse environmental degradation
  • Protect worker rights including collective bargaining, create jobs and raise wages
  • Get money out of politics

I worked for a place where the personnel person for the entry level technical track jobs refused to hire women.

That would be against the law.

I got one of the jobs that was available to women (administrative) and my boss used to brag how much better I was at computer programming type/database administration than the people who were actually hired for that stuff. He tried to get me reclassified so that I would be paid for the IT work I was actually doing, but that would have been a waste of taxpayer money, to pay an IT to salary to a woman for IT work; who would do that when she had shown that she would do the work on a secretarial salary? So no.

If you have evidence that you were discriminated against you should sue.
