23. Still have to disagree...
Edited on Fri Oct-03-03 12:50 PM by VelmaD
if she was qualified for the job and you did not hire her (the shift doesn't matter) just because she was a woman then you discriminated.

If she wasn't qualified that's one thing, but you never stated that she wasn't. Only that she was small. And that you were concerned for her safety. Well, as a grown woman she should have been consulted and allowed to make that decision for herself. Instead you made the decision for her, you decided you knew what was best for her. That's what I consider to have been patronizing.

I think we're gonna have to agree to disagree on this one because I don't think you're going to change your mine. You've got something invested since you made the decision and want to feel like you did the right thing.
