Mary Tyler Moore Show and Workplace Discrimination

mary.jpegIf you haven’t seen it, take the time to watch the first episode of the Mary Tyler Moore Show which aired in 1970.
Lou Grant asks Mary about her age, religion and marital status in a job interview. It’s unclear how much has changed in the workplace since then when you look at discrimination charges, which I include below.

The show and Moore are getting a lot of attention since she passed away yesterday, and some labor experts are pointing out what she’s done to shape...

gloria.jpegIt’s a theory that’s been around as long as women have been in the workplace: Gals are looking for husbands not careers.

While the jobless rate in December for people with a disability declined to 9% from 10.3% in the same month last year, it’s still nearly double the rate for employees without a disability, according to the unemployment report put out by the Bureau of Labor Statistics today.
