Shouldn't all secondary school seniors be taught these rules BEFORE they graduate? And if they are not, as it seems to be the case, why are they not a requirement for graduating in every school in the country? They also need to be taught that if they are being paid to do a job, they should be busy all the time they are on the clock....it is called WORK, right?

Hiring decisions and policies are made by the boomer generation and it's likely to remain that way for the next 10 or 15 years. If you approach a boomer with a visible tattoo or facial piercing, you might as well have "STUPID" tattooed on your forehead. I'm certain Gen X & Y don't understand our way of thinking but, unfortunatly, we own everything and can think anything we want.

If Mr. Trgovac is hiring applicants for call center positions, how and when will the clients see the visible tattoos, piercings, or other body modifications of the CALL CENTER employees? What ever happened to hiring the most qualified applicant? What other factors influence Mr. Trgovac's hiring decision that he's not stating? Race, age, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, weight? It's discrimination against those with body mods, plain and simple. We are not a protected class. Yet.
