Movement to ban jobless discrimination gaining steam

Recently, a hiring director complained to me that he was aghast at the way a job candidate came dressed for an interview for a financial position. He wore jeans and a mostly unbuttoned, button-down shirt. Even worse, the candidate questioned whether the job hours would force him to sit in traffic trying to arrive on time. “It was clear that even though he had been out of work for a year, he really didn’t want the job,” the director said.
