Reader feedback: Try harder

Re: Law in purgatory: How long before justice is done?, Volume 11, Number 18, May 9 - May 15, 2005

It is wrong to prevent someone from being hired or promoted based on sex, sexual orientation, race or religion. If you make it a law, then you are saying you are committed to equality.

This should be very simple, yet everyone is worried about how the law will be misused, abused, and the situation made worse for all those people who currently have no legal recourse even if they can prove that they have been discriminated against.

What is the sense of that? Hoping the problem will go away hasn't had any effect in the last 15 years so doing something is better than nothing. Worry about the abuse later. Move forward. Try.
