Stop Discrimination Against Unemployed Workers

CareerBuilder and Monster run job ads that prohibit the unemployed from applying.

They should do the patriotic thing in helping to get Americans back to work and refuse ads from companies that discriminate against unemployed workers.

Join more than 68,000 Americans and sign the below letter to CareerBuilder and Monster here: http://j.mp/nQNoDi

In the middle of a global economic recession, millions of people are unemployed for reasons they cannot control. Now we’ve learned that many companies are specifying in job advertisements that unemployed people cannot apply for open positions.

This is more than unfair to workers — it is devastating, and we urge you to refuse any such advertisements.

For Americans to get back on their feet, they can’t be chained to their involuntary status of unemployment. Please do your part in helping Americans get back to work

Please sign here to call on CareerBuilder and Monster to refuse ads from companies that prohibit the unemployed from applying: http://j.mp/nQNoDi
