Obama's Jobs Bill Ensures the Unemployed REMAIN Unemployed...

Original post made by Amy, Amador Estates, on Sep 15, 2011

Do you realize that Obama's Jobs Bill allows and encourages unemployed candidates for jobs to sue prospective employers if these candidates are not hired...based on their claim that they were not hired BECAUSE of their unemployed status!

Think about it. This would create a huge disincentive for any employer to even interview an unemployed person for fear that this person would sue.

The level of deliberate job destruction by Obama and the Democrat party in this country is simply breathtaking.

Yeah, that is outrageous, Amy. So outrageous that I seriously doubt that you're giving us accurate information. More likely, you parroting some nonsensical rant made up of twisted facts that you read on some blogger's website.

If the blogger weaselzipper shows what he has uncovered, I accept it as the hard truth.

Sam...

Thank you for agreeing that this is outrageous. But no, I actually am providing accurate info. To further substantiate it, I am copying the relevant section of this Act below and then will provide you with a link to the entire text of the Act so that you can verify for yourself.

Here is the relevant section of the Act...(Note (2) below.)

SUBTITLE D – PROHIBITION OF DISCRIMINATION IN EMPLOYMENT ON THE BASIS

OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S STATUS AS UNEMPLOYED

SEC. 374. PROHIBITED ACTS.

(a) Employers- It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to--

(1) publish in print, on the Internet, or in any other medium, an advertisement or

announcement for an employee for any job that includes-

(A) any provision stating or indicating that an individual's status as

unemployed disqualifies the individual for any employment opportunity; or

(B) any provision stating or indicating that an employer will not consider

or hire an individual for any employment opportunity based on that individual's

status as unemployed; or

(2) fail or refuse to consider for employment, or fail or refuse to hire, an

individual as an employee because of the individual's status as unemployed;

(3) direct or request that an employment agency take an individual's status as

unemployed into account to disqualify an applicant for consideration, screening, or
