Now, let's move on the next topic!

How does it work? Write a quality opinion/comment on this topic and we will choose 3 random winners to win 3,000 points each! (No need to post your own Topic)

Our question this week is: Should employers discriminate against potential job candidates because they have tattoos?
This is in light of a public appeal on Facebook by a 19-year-old New Zealand man, who has been finding it difficult to find employment due to a large tattoo on his face.

Ground Rules: Open to AU and NZ members only. Each week, the TolunaTeamAUNZ will create a topic on the AU and NZ sites regarding a specific theme, and ask members to provide their opinion. Three winners will be selected from each Australia and New Zealand to win 3,000 points. Winners will be chosen at random from all eligible posts. Eligible posts must be in compliance with the Toluna Member Code of Conduct. Winners will be announced within 2 weeks from launch of Topic, and bonus points credited to member accounts via direct credit.

As someone who has tattoos and loves them, I definitely feel like employers shouldn't discriminate against. Having tattoos does not impact your ability to work and they don't affect your work ethic! Employers should embrace people who are obviously very creative and expressive, and who know what commitment is!

No, if anything employers need to deconstruct this notion of associating tattoos to negative work performance! To think that having a tattoo would affect ones professional capability is ridiculous. To judge ones personal choice of creative expression even more ridiculous. Is that tattoo going to leap out of skin and jump on a fellow-employee or something?? I don't think so lol.

No a tattoo could be very meaningful to them in who they are in ways it could be a cultural or family related or something very meaningful to them also there are some cases where they could have been in a gang or something similar and now want to turn life around

No, they shouldn't. People shouldn't be defined by their tattoos. For example, and this is an extreme case; ex-gang members/gang members with tattoos. These people may want to turn their lives around and not being able to get a job because of stupid tattoos they have, doesn't help them and it doesn't help them survive. Discriminating against someone because they have a tattoo is extremely dehumanising and taking away someone's individuality and identity. It's not fair and people should be allowed to express themselves in any way they want, as long as it is respectful.
