Fishing only works if there's an actual point to it.

I have absolutely no idea where this is going.

If you want to be in the Police or Fire Brigade, youve got very little chance. They only want minorities to get the roles. Such as females, muslims or Homosexuals. Same applies to the BBC.

That kinda thing has been going on for ages Holgatesp1kes. One example is Durham and Darlington Fire Service who had a recruitment drive towards the end of last year and the advert read 'we're particularly interested in candidates from LGBT and ethnic minority backgrounds'.

OP seems be trolling for sympathy by implying he can’t get a job because of his race, gender and sexuality.

More likely its to do with his lack of skills or qualification.

Are people from LBGT or ethnic minority backgrounds better at putting out fires?

I believe they call it ‘positive discrimination’, but I can’t see anything positive about it.

These type of policies are dated and stupid, they were designed to stop those 80s type people employing only white blokes.

Those people surely aren’t around anymore and any one hiring will have no issue employing anyone asking as they are good.

I think we can agree with equal opportunities but equal outcomes or discriminating through quotas is something completely different.

"Are people from LBGT or ethnic minority backgrounds better at putting out fires?

Don't think they are given the job over someone better qualified or suited to the job, but they have to report on how many applicants and successful candidates they have in these groups to show they aren't discriminating. People used to take this same stance when companies did it for black people, and women, which seems amazing now that we had to encourage these groups to apply for jobs and be successful, but theres always people behind the times...

Which in itself is now 'behind the times'.

People have realised that you can't cure perceived discrimination by discriminating.

The move is moving steadily toward 'blind shortlisting' which removes the candidates gender/race/disability from application forms and works on the presumption that there is nothing more diverse than the individual.

This may increase or decrease diversity but whichever way it goes it will diminish the power of victimhood.

Cleveland fire brigade had a drive at the end of last year for minority group women, who were told that if they applied during the current recruitment drive, they would automatically bypass the selection process.

I don’t believe anyone would bypass the selection process at all due to the fact they would surely have to complete the physical assessments to ensure they are capable of performing in the role.

The physicals is what most females fail, I have no problems going against any minority group, I am confident in my ability to outshine anyone, regardless of protected characteristics or beliefs.

I am all for positive discrimination, if 2 people are of equal scores ect and you cannot choose between. I would be very disappointed to lose out this way, but I would fully understand the decision.

Hopefully I will be one of the lucky ones applying at Cleveland Fire Brigade.

WTF, you are happy for positive discrimination. You are happy for someone to get a job based off of there skin colour or gender. Thats just crazy and shows its working in brainwashing people into thinking this is acceptable behaviour. Positive discrimination helps no one, having unqualified and unsuitable people in a position based off of skin colour or gender is just bad in every way. In the above example 2 people will never be the same, there will always be differences. But if your happy for a job prospect to be taken away from you because your a white male then there is no hope for any of us.

There should always be equal opportunity for anyone but never should there be equal outcome.

If we both made it as far as final interview and passed, then a decision has to be made and unfortunately if your up against a female it would be inevitable this day and age you would be overlooked by some organisations. It happened to some guy on this morning last week, for a Police job.

Harsh facts, can’t do anything about it and I would personally not burn my bridges if the job is something I want in particular as a firefighter. Kick up a stink and they will no doubt remember you next time and you won’t get anywhere.

My life will be defined by my actions, if I am not winning, im learning. Never dwell take it on the chin and move on.

Wow what an absolute defeatist attitude you have. If this was against black people there would be lawsuits and cries of racism. But just because your a white male your attitude is, "ahh its ok, nothing can be done". We are doomed as a people if everyone had that opinion.

Nothing can be done, apart from discrimination claims in a tribunal, then you burn your bridges.

The way the world is going now, positive discrimination is here and is going nowhere.

Oh dear rayban. I clearly hit a nerve.

My advice for you is that if you want to get a job then work harder for it instead of looking for excuses or blaming others for your own shortcomings.

If your good enough you’ll eventually get what you deserve. Nothing is handed to you on a plate.

Paragon [^]

No-one should get preferential treatment over another because of their ethnicity, sexuality or gender. Regardless of the nature of that preferential treatment or what the perceived difference is, it just should not happen and should not be tolerated.

It's nothing short of hypercritical to hold the view that discrimination against white hetrosexual males is acceptable but discrimination against other groups is not.

Where the real issue lies is when people who are below the requires standard given the job above others because they are in a minority group. This has happened on a couple of occasions in my job.
