Unemployment Linked to Discrimination

The current unemployment rate is fine, but unfortunately it is meaningless, because workforce participation remains dismally low. Some say this is due primarily to excessive taxation, suffocating regulation, and the ease of living off disability or other types of welfare. The Onion has found another explanation — facial tattoos:

No worries; if we could come to accept homosexual marriage as normal, facial tattoos will surely follow closely behind, putting an end to this stigmatization and discrimination.

On a tip from Bodhisattva.

    He is more believable than Elizabeth Warren.

    Any Tattoo is a “F%CK YOU”. Face tattoos are two orders of magnitude beyond that. If I was in a burning building and the fireman on the ladder came to the window to take me to safety and he had face tattoos I wouldn’t go.

    Yeah, sure, PREJUDICE must be why that guy can’t get a job! /sarc

    Donald Trump has some convincing material posted on his website that refutes what Summer “Zeros” has alleged:

    Love her line about “embracing anyone who is honest”… WHAT UNINTENDED IRONY! 😀

    Research has proven that people with tattoos tend to go on to become criminals. (Also many get their tattoos in or after being in prison.)

    Dear Tattooed Job Applicant:
    I operate a business. As an employee of mine, when people see you, they see a representative of my business; you are literally the face of my business. If 50% of the people who enter the door of my business think you look odd or weird, or off-putting, your face has decreased the number of customers who will buy my product, and you have caused my business to take in less money, making you a less profitable employee than someone who doesn’t scare customers off.
    Maybe that isn’t fair, but it is the truth. But I’m going to hire people who don’t scare off customers.

    Tattoos and piercings on the face just scream, “Look at me! Look at me! Hey, what are you looking at??!!??”

    To finish that sentence: “yeah, I’m a loser!”

    Is it just me or does it seem Onion has morphed into a real news source, lost much of its satirical punch? Yup, it has gotten just that weird around.

    Why won’t anybody hire Rich Martin?

  12. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Yes, and I judge people by their appearance, too.
