The new face of class struggle – don’t apply for a job unless you already have one

In a separate incident reported earlier this month by the Huffington Post, The People Place, a job recruiting company, reportedly posted a job description with a message along the bottom that read, “Client will not consider/review anyone NOT currently employed regardless of the reason.”
Another incident occurred with Sony/Ericsson, where the company posted a help wanted ad, with the the following message, “NO UNEMPLOYED CANDIDATES WILL BE CONSIDERED AT ALL.”

Employment in the USA seems to be about class status. The interview process seems to be a social process that decides whether the job applicant is socially adept and attractive enough to be a member of the workplace pseudo-family.

It might come as a shock to Americans that in other countries, the job interview process is a short inquiry to ascertain whether the candidate can do some productive work, and the workplace is devoted to getting work done, not to pseudo-familial relationships.
