Monster.com Says It Won’t Ban Third-Party Ads That Discourage Job Applications From The Unemployed

Here’s an interesting article that speaks to the unfortunate times we live in. The gist of it is Monster.com has open positions listed on its site by some employers who have the audacity to state in their ads “the unemployed need not apply.” I believe this practice, while it may not be illegal, is fundamentally wrong! What’s really sad is most of them will clean up their ads (due to public outcry), however, their policies will remain. To be clear, my annoyance is NOT directed at Monster.com – it is squarely aimed at employers engaged in such foolish practices! I think I will try and identify a few and will make sure I do not purchase any of their products or services. Perhaps you can do the same!
