And here all this time I thought they at least needed a GED. I stand corrected.

Affirmative Action employer:Affirmative action is the process of a business or governmental agency in which it gives special rights of hiring or advancement to ethnic minorities to make up for past discrimination against that minority.

If the percentage of minority or female employees in your workforce is substantially lower than the percentage in your geographical labor area, you must state in the affirmative action plan that you are going to correct this imbalance -- and then go do it.

"The rest are only there for the paycheck and generous benefits. Screeners start at $15 per hour, and there is tons of overtime ó mainly because they are filling in for the many screeners who donít bother coming to work. For every 40 hours you work, you receive four hours of vacation and four hours of sick time.

One screener didnít come to work for four weeks. When he finally reappeared, he asked for another week off. The answer was no. So what did this brainiac decide to do? He took another week off ó and didnít get terminated. "

A relative worked the Newark AP as a temporary TSA screener. He quickly figured out the employees there had NO interest in working.

Disaster waiting to happen.

Funny "former" usually means disgruntled or bad at the job, in your "mind" it means dishes dirt, which has the taint of spoiled moron meat....
