Last night Dan Pink, author of Whole New Mind (excellent book) spoke at Ted Mann hall at the University of Minnesota. As he was speaking, Obama was giving his acceptance speech. Somehow the connection between what Pink was speaking of and the fact that the Democratic Convention was happening a few miles a way, got me thinking.
It dawned on me that many of the ways that an employee files a suit against a company will soon be history if presidential candidacy is any sort of litmus test. We protect our employees rights from being violated on grounds of racial discrimination, gender discrimination and age discrimination.
When you look at the final contenders for the presidential nomination, it would seem all of those classes of discrimination are soon to be a thing of the past. It is difficult to say that when all three classes are represented in the presidential race that these are three classes that need protecting. Because blogs are a great way to get debate stimulated, it would be wonderful to hear why these comments, albeit interesting, are naive as a toddler learning to walk for the first time.
