re: WTF do people keep getting tested? - Meatflap
I can tell you that my job often has me traveling to other job sites to do my work. On one particular job, someone from another company got sick and tested positive. The general contractor on that job insisted that we couldn't go back to that job site until we had been tested negative. Some peop...

re: SCOTUS Reasoning - Meatflap
Do you think that the writers of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 deliberately left out gay people? Were they not people that deserve protection from discrimination too? Homosexuality just wasn't talked about that much but it doesn't mean that it didn't exist. There are plenty of stories where gay p...

re: SCOTUS Reasoning - Meatflap
The paragraph directly before the one that includes your quote, defines "sexual orientation discrimination" and makes the connection as to why it is "because of sex". It might sound murky, but until they invent new language for this situation, we're stuck with this choppy legalese....

re: SCOTUS Reasoning - Meatflap
It is pretty strange how language evolves from one generation to the next, and I agree that in the 1960s, when the Civil Rights Act was written, they may not have considered LGBTQ people as needing protection from discrimination. But sixty years later, those people who are charged with interpreting ...

re: SCOTUS Reasoning - Meatflap
Although the original person I responded to and I were discussing a different aspect of this ruling, I can see your point. I do however disagree that the Supreme Court made law. It is their job to interpret law as it says on their own website. First paragraph: "EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW"-These word...

re: SCOTUS Reasoning - Meatflap
I don't disagree with you there, but the government isn't telling me that I can't hire people that are going to help my business, they are saying that I can't fire them based on their sexual orientation. I'm also aware that lawsuits happen daily and thankfully I haven't been sued by any employee ...

re: SCOTUS Reasoning - Meatflap
If an employee I hire sucks, I let them go based on their performance, not because they are gay or transexual. I have a gay employee right now and he is a very good craftsman. I have no problem with his orientation and it doesn't reflect poorly on my business. My criteria is that I hire the peopl...

re: SCOTUS Reasoning - Meatflap
If they were a good and valued employee, why would it matter? I don't hire my employees based on their sexual orientation. I hire them based on their potential to earn or produce for my business....

re: What’s your thoughts when you roll by a construction site and see a male flagger? - Meatflap
OSHA requires that work done with heavy machinery and definitely those working in operable roadways, be done with a traffic flagger. I'm thinking that his boss put him in a position that is required by law and if he's doing his job correctly, I usually give him a nod of appreciation because he's tak...

re: Why are we afraid of Democratic Socialism? - Meatflap
You're right, I don't know the inner workings of your employee benefit structure but it sounds like it's fantastic for you. Not everyone can work for your company, not everyone can work for a large company and furthermore, they might not want to. So I'm glad that you are happy with your setup an...

re: Why are we afraid of Democratic Socialism? - Meatflap
Not a bad idea actually. Kudos. There are always outliers though so what would you propose for those absolutely incapable of working? Not those who choose to not work, those who've been injured so badly they cannot return to their profession or those who are mentally disabled and are unemployable...
