    Have you faced discrimination on your job based upon your race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, & age? If so, did you remedy the situation or moved on?

      What is discrimination? Once, I had a boss in his early thirties who really was out to get the older women. He would pick on them and be overly strict with them. He was very tall and he would use it to his advantage to loom over them berating them for minor things. They decided he had been a daycare baby and was psychologically angry at his mother: mommy issues.
      At another job, male employees were given preferential treatment such as more pay for the same work/positions as the females. Our boss, a woman, really did seem to prefer her male employees.
      She had two sons. One son, who she coddled and spoiled, became a horrible son.
      These are not serious example of discrimination, but humans do have their foibles and are not often fair in treating others, as we all know.
      I hope others will chime in.
