  2. Are there laws against companies wanting to see your medical records
    as part of the hiring process? I'd want to see the maintenance records
    before leasing an expensive piece of equipment.

    It's refreshing to look at employment ads in places like Hong Kong
    where they don't burden business with all this socialist stuff-
    "wanted 23-25 year old attractive female office girl". Why not just
    ask for what you want?

  4. Well, I am merely a guest in your venue. :)

    But, as far as identifying in yourself what has attracted me to your
    reality, that's your prerogative. And it can be a delightful adventure.

  5. True, but Rich is a bit too far away for me to trip over. Unless he's
    achieved omnipresence, of course. (;-)

    Just one of the standard rebuttals to Solipsism.

    Unless you're a masochist. ;-)

    You don't get it, this is a step away from your don't look good enough,
    smoking, drinking off hours, and high blood pressure have nothing to do with
    a great number of jobs today! Of course if you have no arms you can't get a
    warehouse person expected to drive a fork lift! But if you were a smoker and
    a fork-lift driver and could do the job it should not!
  8. ;-) Maybe that's why they left.

    I agree, but it's rather cynical for HK chinese to come to NZ and then
    scream blue bloody murder about being discriminated against because of
    their race!!

  10. Oh NO! From the way the world looks, I must really be screwed
    up royal. What do I do now?
  11. Look the other way of course! {;-)

    A step back to more like it used to be. Drinking and smoking could get you
    fired on moral grounds in a lot of places in the US. Though that was
    enforced more on Women than Men. They also could get fired for wearing pants
    and a lot of other reasons.

    I repeat: Shouldn't a company be able to have a *reasonable* expectation
    that their new hires will be physically capable of doing the job? Companies
    aren't welfare institutions.

    Not having enough experience to do a job is also "a step away from your(sic) don't look
    good enough"

    "Supposed" is an item of faith.

    And not all (most?) people share that faith.
