Racial discrimination at ford?
White male managers accuse the Ford Motor Co. of reverse discrimination, claiming they are victims of racial, age and gender bias.
After reading this article, I'm really at a loss as to where the racism is. They are reviewing all management and ditching those in the worst 5%...
"... older white managers who received "Cs" after long highly productive careers say they feel they are victims of discrimination."
Golly Pal. You know, the past counts for something but you have to keep producing or you're gonna get canned. What's the problem here? This isn't racism, it's meritocracy and I'm all for it. If they were giving bonuses to the evaluations based on ethnic background or sex then I could see the gripe. But the article doesn't say they are so what exactly is wrong with cutting the fat?
