An economic burden...or gift?

There is little question how badly the state of the national, and even global, economy has affected job employment. But does being part of a minority group paint a bigger target, for good or ill?

For those dreading that pink slip every morning due to downsizing, could one's diversity serve to make you a liability, or a needed resource? Likewise, when trying to apply for a position, does "the race issue" act as a trump card or a ?handicap?

Of course, the ideal answer is that race should provide neither advantage or detriment. Race shouldn't be an issue at all. But between affirmative action efforts and any lingering traces of segregation, the shadow of race still holds some sway.

How has it affected you? Let us know in the comments. 07 05, 2017 (03:07) Yes No   IBPS PO Admit Card 2017: Here is your IBPS PO Admit Card 2017 notification came to an end.

freecell Yes No   Unlike some solitaire games that lack gloss and also others that add a lot of bells as well as whistles, sidetracking from the core jewelry experience, Jewelry Classic strikes the excellent balance both in regards to classic jewelry gameplay and also practical modern-day layout, giving you just the right amount of choices for all your solitaire requires!
