Over 50 Percent of Companies Discriminate AGAINST White Men in Hiring, Survey Finds

Over 50 Percent of Companies Discriminate AGAINST White Men in Hiring, Survey Finds

“Fifty-two percent of companies use ‘Reverse Discrimination’ according to hiring managers, and 1 in 6 are told to ‘deprioritize’ white men.”

A new survey by ResumeBuilder has found that more than 50 percent of companies discriminate against white men in their hiring practices.

According to our intellectual betters in media and politics, we’re not supposed to believe this because white men are the most privileged class.

The DC Enquirer reports:

Stunning New Survey Shows 52% Of Companies Actively Discriminate Against White Men When Hiring

A new study published by ResumeBuilder Monday has confirmed what many Americans struggling with employment post-COVID lockdowns have already noticed: in many roles, white men need not apply. Fifty-two percent of companies use ‘Reverse Discrimination’ according to hiring managers, and 1 in 6 are told to ‘deprioritize’ white men. Even worse, 95% of them believe their DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) initiatives are improving their companies.

In a well-documented, headlong plunge to embrace DEI, many firms have reportedly taken a stance of discrimination against white male job applicants according to a ResumeBuilder study.

With affirmative action making its way to the Supreme Court, the practice has come under increased scrutiny. Even a recent column in The Washington Post in August took note:

“I was chatting with one of my bosses the other day about a potential new hire. He let slip that the executive team ultimately did not extend an offer because “we didn’t need another White guy.” He literally said this out loud. I was taken aback,”

ResumeBuilder surveyed 1,000 hiring managers across the country in early November to find out how many believe that reverse discrimination is an issue impacting the workplace. The findings were absolutely damning.

  • “52% believe their company practices “reverse discrimination” in hiring”
  • “1 in 6 have been asked to deprioritize hiring white men”
  • “48% have been asked to prioritize diversity over qualifications”
  • “53% believe their job will be in danger if they don’t hire enough diverse employees”
  • “70% believe their company has DEI initiatives for appearances’ sake”

Here’s more from ResumeBuilder:

Sixteen percent of hiring managers surveyed say they have been told to deprioritize white men when evaluating candidates, and 14% have been told to deprioritize hiring white women. This is a consistent finding with past reports of “reverse discrimination”.

For example, according to Bloomberg “A lawsuit claims former Google and YouTube recruiter Arne Wilberg was unlawfully fired because he didn’t reject white and Asian male job candidates, which he said the company pressured him and other recruits to do for diversity purposes.”

“Hiring practices regarding diversity are also evolving and workers will notice if companies are treating these practices as simply the means of getting to the desired end,” advised Haller.

It almost seems like ‘diversity and inclusion’ policies are meant to exclude some people.

Comments

We need massive lawsuits

I’m sure if the truth be known that goes back decades.

I am self-employed in a one-man operation and every year I have to answer questions about discrimination and inclusion. I take the liberty to give cheeky answers like: ‘”My hiring policy forbids discriminating against anyone, clients or employees. As a one-man company, I am confident that I can trust all of my employees to adhere to company policy.”

You would think they would first ask if I have any other employees.besides myself. It would save everyone a lot of time.

    The bigger the list of things the company promises not to discriminate about, the more likely they are to do it. A form of leftist projection.

    Especially if they say “diverse applicants encouraged to apply.” I don’t even bother at that point. And don’t get me started on “diversity statements.” Racist garbage.

    We need a list of these companies, please.

It’s more prominent and more openly done today but really not a new thing. The military has done so for a long time. The promotion selection process includes a photo supposedly to view the person to determine if they are in shape and display a military appearance.

For one year the photos were forcibly removed because the activists claimed it was discriminatory towards minorities and women. The promotion boards now only had the performance records, awards/decorations, academic records, assignment history and military education records.

The result when the only evidence of race was removed? A huge increase in the number of white males selected for promotion. The next year the photos were again part of the record, reintroducing race into the process.

Experience is the best education.
The country is about to get educated on misery of “settling for skin color”.
Let them fail. It is a well-documented truth that the years following a plague of Locusts result in bountiful harvests.

    Merit based or race based. The former benefits the company and the country. The latter does not.

    Anything else is socialist rubbish.

    Based on the success of cities who elect black mayors, I would say it’s too early to call. Hard to say what is going with those clouds of smoke from the rioters and looters obscuring the view. It’s probably okay.

And 48% of survey respondents lied, of course. In any company where you have a group of four or more straight white males where a fifth person is being hired/promoted to expand the group, there is nearly a zero percent chance that the new hire will be a non-disabled, straight white male. If the panel has twenty qualified straight white males to pick from, the panel will be rejected and the position opened again. To do otherwise is to invite a lawsuit from somebody unqualified for the position who was rejected from the panel and will gladly sue their way to a paycheck.

    Smaller companies may be less afflicted with the mania, but certainly 100% of large corporations are all in. At my last employer, it was constantly asserted that DIE was our top priority, bonuses were tied to it, etc. Supposedly, no opening could be filled until at least one “diverse” applicant was considered. Ironically, the company was dominated by Indians and Chinese, who were of course deeply cynical about the whole business.

I take it as given that the woke corporations embracing CRT garbage are discriminating. How could they not? Those garbage philosophies literally require it.

In other news, water is wet.

This has been going on in major companies for years; in academia, for decades. When whether your company / faculty looks like a Benetton ad is more important than quality (so the C-Suite types can virtue signal to their peers about how hip and woke they are), discrimination against white men, Asian men (and coming soon, straight white and Asian women, and in some states straight Hispanic men) is inevitable.

Heck, we just saw the Solicitor General (a woman) complain to SCOTUS (four women out of nine justices) that the “lack” of women arguing before the high court means . . . something. What’s next? “White male attorneys won more cases?” (When she complains about, say, “underrepresentation” of white/Hispanic/Asian men in NBA starting lineups, maybe I’ll hear her out.)

On the positive side, the practice is and has been illegal. These kinds of unguarded admissions have already resulted in some huge judgments (and probably a lot of confidential settlements). And if what I am hearing through the grapevine comes to pass (omnibus “anti-woke” legislation at the state level in red states like Texas and Florida), it’s going to become a lot easier to sue over it.

In 1993 I worked for a company that depended on one thing for getting their government contract: black-owned. Yet, virtually every employee in our division save one, was white. They were black-owned, sure, but they wanted reliable, talented people who showed up on time.

    In my company, we solved that by working through a black-owned shell company. The lucky proprietor got a slice of the action (from many companies, not just us) and contributed exactly nothing besides his valuable black skin.

      You bring to mind an episode of “WKRP in Cincinnati” where Venus Fly Trap, their black DJ, was made an amazing offer from another station, and he took it. It turned out to be a “package format” station; all automated and all recorded tapes. No live DJ work at all.

      He came back to WKRP and was asked what happened. “They hired me, essentially, to sit there and be black.”

      Dimsdale in reply to Old Patzer. | November 12, 2022 at 1:01 pm

      So they put up a token black company to build a Potemkin village of diversity.

      As Griz noted, the reality was behind the scenes.

        Black-owned companies can hire who they want. So, they hire for need, not to satisfy the EEOC and the DOJ.

We should start doing some hostile things towards woke corporations that are implicated like imposing a tax on companies that perform affirmative action proceeds to go to improving the school systems of poverty stricken areas.

We have decades of history establishing that discrimination based on race is not protected speech and we should start doing things that force corporate America to justify itself or reverse course.

If they insist on Der Race Uber Alles fine they get to pay the tax and fund schools more.

Blue states still won’t be competitive with red states taxwise but taxation has always been in part a statement of ideal (see for example sumptuary taxes).

    Unfortunately, the school systems in urban areas are controlled by the Democrat unions, hence the high level of low performance among black students.

    They would just use the money for admin/teacher salaries and little else.

      Danny in reply to Dimsdale. | November 12, 2022 at 2:17 pm

      Not all underperforming areas are urban, and even in the urban areas if there are no viable alternatives to the local public school system to fund vouchers should do the trick.

      I cannot stress enough, black culture has very low regard for education and a large percentage of black parents do very little to prepare their children for school, most black children start school far behind, and then are are further disadvantaged with low expectations.

      People have no choice about their intellectual capacity, they do have a choice in picking a mate which might improve their children’s prospects. Even more important is that they do their best to see their children achieve their full potential.

      Today we have a wide scale problem with people failing to do well by their children,

    Giving government schools more money ain’t going to fix them. More money does not make a school system better.

None of this brazenly blatant and illegal — yes, illegal, though the vile Dumb-o-crats would deny it — discrimination will end until companies are sued across the board, everywhere these hiring policies are in place. A few class action suits and massive jury awards/settlements will change company policies in short order.

These Marxist tools all want “diversity” candidates hired, until they’re stepping on an airplane or need cardiac surgery. HYPOCRITES.

In the spirit of Brandon, one word. Carmen Ambar. Show me a white guy who could be “in charge” and blow $45M+ and still be employed. Had Krislov remained as President at Oberlin, would he still be in place following the verdict?

On a plus note, the diversity experiment in Portland of Jo “no po po” Hardesty came to an end on Tuesday. Global warming wasn’t enough to raise her room-temp IQ to the point where even the most oblivious Portland voters could give her a pass.

White? Albino?

Peach privilege, Jew privilege under other left-wing regimes constituted under the same theme.

Diversity (i.e. color judgment, class-based bigotry) breeds adversity. Lose your Pro-Choice ethical religion.

Not surprised. My daughter was told she stood a better chance of getting an offer (we are all Latino) if she would also say she was a lesbian. Problem is, she isn’t and she won’t lie about it. This is getting ludicrous.

    I refuse to identify as “gay”, although I am homosexual. But, we’re I in the job market I’d tick the boxes for Hispanic and “African American “. If that box said “black” I would not. Ancestors from Spain and Morocco.

    I could tick “Asian” as well, as in steppes of central but Asian is now a kiss of death.
