If I get an Indian on the line, I hang up. I am too through with Indian call centers. Your name is not Betty and you are not helpful either.

i tell them "I want to speak to someone in AMERICA!"

So what happens at this employment tribunal?  Do they have the power to fine the company?


 

If he wins, he is looking to get paid. 

Their statement was pitta. Not even 'we are so shocked and are going to look into this and retrain/sack'. Just lazy soundbite. 

These companies got minorities running around like headless chickens changing their names/ naming their kids bland watered down names just to get a call for an interview. Until they see brown. What then? 
We get so much shiit thrown at us, I am surprised our collective anger hasn't finished this world yet.

what happens when you have a white name, then go to the interview and they see that you're black?
Do they still hire?
