A 25-year-old man in San Diego is suing a Starbucks because he believed they did not hire him because he has only arm, and that his application being denied due to the fact of discrimination. However, when he was living in Wisconsin, he worked at a bar and could easily handle plates and other items with one arm.

What do you think? Do you think this was total discrimination?

Fucking baby. Oh they wouldn't hire me, it must be because they hate cripples wah wah wah! Cry me a river, bitch. He'll go nowhere in life using that one arm thing as an excuse. He probably responds to all criticism he takes with "Fuck you, your discriminating me because I have one arm".

And as retarded as the American Judicial system is these days, he'll probably win the case.

As if it's actually unfair to assume that a person with one arm can't work as well as a person with two? How stupid.

If they said "We're not hiring you because you have one arm" then he has grounds to sue under the discrimination and fair-trade acts. If they just said he wasn't hired and assumed it was because he has one arm, that's kind of stale.

This. Maybe they genuinely found someone they felt was better for the job. I can understand he may think he's being discriminated, but maybe if he went and asked why he didn't get the job they'd tell him the truth, rather than him accusing them based on his assumptions.

It would be unfair if they didn't hire him because of the loss of one arm though, especially if he'd worked in such places before.

Maybe it would be, but do you think that if they didn't hire him because he has only one arm, he should have the right to sue the company?

I don't know to be honest, I think so as it would go against many of the acts. Plus people sue over anything these days, I think it's ruined how people perceive it and what should and shouldn't be sued.

That's true. Well, in America anyways.
But i don't know, i think it's kinda logical that they would hire a man with two arms instead of one, since a man with two arms can just do much more work.
Then again, thinking from Starbuck's point of view, it would be good publicity.

If i were that one armed man though and they would say to me that i'm not hired because i have only one arm, i would understand. And i would consider to apply for different jobs and don't become a waiter of some kind.

If I had one arm I would completely understand if people assumed I wouldn't be able to serve people as well as a two-armed person.
Maybe he should try to get a job where your number of arms doesn't matter.

He's probably going to win this case, unfortunately. He's going to get nowhere in life using the one arm as an excuse, people just won't accept it. Besides, you can only hold one latte with one arm...

I didn't get hired the last time I sent out a job application.

THEY ARE DISCRIMINATING AGAINST MY SEXUALITY AND GENDER AND ALSO MY RACE!

In this economy, it's hard for everyone and anyone to get a job, why does he feel so special?

Because he has one arm he must there for be popular and loved otherwise people are discriminating against him.

Or, he might just want to try being an ok guy and not attention whoring maybe.

The fact that the American Judicial system is retarded is exactly why he will win this case.
Perhaps he's just making a scene so he will get a case to sue them. Now, we all know very well that they didn't hire him out of discrimination, it's just that people with two hands can do more for Starbucks where they need more than one hand if not most of the time but part of the time when creating such beverages that they provide. He's doing it for the moneys. And if he does, truly believe it's out of discrimination, then he's one of those people, that just needs to get their head out their arse and come to realise the world around them and the actuality of it.

Just because they didn't hire him doesn't mean it was because of him only having one arm. It could of been that they hired someone else they felt more qualified for the job, and not because the person had two arms but because of their background.

All the guy knows is that he applied for a job and was denied and he thinks that just because he only has one arm that he deserves a free ride. Well no.

Unless they actually told him it was because of his arm (or lack of), he is just being a baby.
