Ups Pregnant Worker Discimination

UPS was putting a worker who was pregnant at the time on unpaid leave. This is discrimination. It isn't fare to not pay someone while they are pregnant. especially because of how expensive it is to pay for and support a baby. The woman had told the manager the manager that she couldn't lift heavy boxes. She requested the lighter ones. They had already given that position to other workers with similar predicaments. She said that the company didn't follow protocol when she was pregnant. Therefore she sued the company, and won the case in a six-three vote.

Discriminating Kids you Don't Know: My Own Views

I believe that kids discriminate each other without even knowing them because maybe there different and have different qualities. To the discriminator that person is different from them and might even be scared of them for there own reasons. That doesn't make it okay to hurt them and leave them out. Just because they are not the same as you doesn't mean you can't except them for who they are and be friends with them. You never know someone could be doing the same thing to you and it just continues on and on with basically no end.

Holding Prejudice Ideas and Opinions Against People You Don't Know

  • Kids learn how to be prejudice through example they see all throughout society.
  • Maybe the parents don't do or say anything prejudice the children could pick up the knowledge from other people as they see and hear what they do.
  • To make sure our future as a society is good we have to learn from and teach our children to work side by side and not look at what color there skins are or where there from.
  • If we don't shape the young society they will grow up to think that it is okay to discriminate and and actually will do it without even knowing.
