American Psychological Association Claims Hiring the Most Qualified Job Applicants Is 'Unfair'


Recommended Posts


Love is hate. War is peace. And merit-based hiring is unfair. 

So says the American Psychological Association (APA) about the latter. I have no idea what they think about the first two, but I wouldn't be surprised if they agree with those oxymoronic claims, as well.


While the rational among us have become somewhat unaffected — I tend to think of it as unable to be surprised — by the insane world of woke: diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), gender fluidity, transsexualism, and self-selected pronouns, the notion that hiring a job applicant based on his or her qualifications for the job is somehow "unfair" is preposterous. Yet, here we are.

According to the APA's press release about its new research:

People from across the political spectrum also are more likely to support programs that encourage socioeconomic diversity after learning about the effects of social class and low income, according to the research, published online in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General.
