    against the unemployed. Discriminating against the unemployed is extremely easy. The can eliminate the language from the ads but when a resume comes in with a break in employment, it will be tossed aside. If they're ever audited, employers can find acceptable reasons why they didn't hire people.

    I don't know why employers seem to think that just because someone is still employed that makes them a better candidate. I would think someone who needs a job is very willing to do whatever they can to prove themselves.

    I don't recall we ever had this issue during past recessions.
