Chapter 26. Employment > Negotiation and Discrimination

Negotiation and Discrimination

Wanted: Qualified Person to Help Customers Select Furniture

Must have interior decorating experience. Salary negotiable. Great compensation package. Apply at Isabel's Interiors. Isabel's is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate for reasons of race, creed, color, or gender.


WHAT DO YOU KNOW?

Circle the letter of the phrase that best completes each sentence.

1:The pay for this job (a) is very high; (b) is very low; (c) is open to discussion; (d) depends upon experience.
A1: (c). The pay is negotiable—that is, open to discussion. The pay could also depend on experience, but the ad does not provide that information.
2:Isabel's Interiors (a) hires only women; (b) hires only minorities; (c) does not decide whom to hire based on their race; (d) hires many people.
A2: (c). We know from the ad that Isabel's does not discriminate for reasons of race, creed, color, or gender. Discriminate in this context means to act or make decisions with bias. Therefore, answers (a) and (b) cannot be correct. The ad gives no information that would lead us to believe that Isabel's hires many people.
3:The person hired for this job will probably (a) be a minority; (b) not be a minority; (c) receive vacation, health, or other benefits; (d) not have experience.
A3: (c). Compensation means pay and benefits. Since the ad promises a good compensation package, we can interpret this to mean that workers receive something more than just wages.
