Company A makes widgets. It employs a hundred people and is a successful export business making a very impressive profit.
Company B also makes widgets. It did employ a hundred people but unfortunately it had to comply with enforced targets to employ people who weren’t as productive or as knowledgeable. Unfortunately Company B now only employs 5 people as the better run Company A has taken its business.
Company A is in a country without enforced racial employment rates. Company B is in Britain.
If Company B loses its business to the slicker operations of Company A but with extreme zeal complies with the racial discrimation policies the government advocates, is Company B successful according to the diversity industry? Is that what counts?
Employ someone because they are the best person available to do the job. I can’t believe I need to write that.
