Re: Qualified immigrants face job discrimination

Of course there are discrimination against foreigners here, but it's not an isolated issue just to Switzerland, hence the topic was limited to Switzerland and not to the rest of the world, and just because it happens everywhere does NOT make it ok...

just because it didn't happened to me, friends or my girlfriend does NOT mean it does not happens, it happens, so stop being so fxxking naive....

All the mentioned countries (india, turkey, china etc.) which seems to be "discriminated" by the swiss are not really the stars when it comes to equal opportunities und multi-culti. It hink Central/Western/North - Europe is far ahead in equal oppotunities when it comes to foreign workers than the mentioned countries - maybe even to the rest of the world.

So my recommendation for these people: "clean up" your own country first before you point on other countries/people.
wait, I let my 7 year old take this discussion with you...

...oh wait, he's out of the kindergarden...

Discrimination can be a very subtle thing.

I'm Portuguese and when I would discuss with my Swiss friends about looking for a job they would tell me that I could be a cleaning lady or work at the Coop like the other Portuguese people, never mind the fact that I speak several languages, have a master's degree and have developed complex multi-national marketing programs. Of course they think they are being helpful.

Also, you'll notice that the Indians in our friends BF's company are in IT.

Portuguese people are good at cleaning and working in the supermarket.
Indians are good at IT.
Polish are good plumbers, etc.
Omg that's terrible Mia!

You should be canonized.

What I meant is that those exact things that I wouldn't say to others (which of course do exist) I would also not post them under the anonymity of an Internet forum. Likewise I only post what I feel comfortable in saying personally to the potential readers of my posts.

And I do try to be 100% honest when I open my mouth, otherwise I prefer to keep it closed.

I'm not basing myself on one company only. Yesterday for example, I had a job interview in a big company, the recruiter was from hungary and my potential future boss was from argentina. When I was walking through the company I also noticed a lot of indian guys working on computers. I can't stand this behaviour, always laying the responsibility on racism and whining about everything, that's total bullshit. Maybe their german level was not high enough, maybe other candidates were more qualified, maybe their personnality didn't fit with the company's standards. These people really need to start doing some soul-searching.
I agree 100%. The racism card is being used as often as the immigration sustainability card. People really should do some genuine soul-searching about their relative competitiveness.
