Hows about instead of trying to force a certain percentage they only take the qualified people? Let say we look at the qualified talent pool for a certain madeup job, using random numbers to show my point. talent pool is 70% type A 20% type B 5% type C 4% Type D and 1% type E normally in a perfect system the company would hire 70% A, 20% B, 5% C etc etc... right? However, IF said company is forced to maintain a balanced percentage, 20% of each of the 5 types what would that do? Type B is perfectly represented (YAY!) Type A gets the shaft, HARD, and types C, D, and E are all vastly over represented, forcing a sense of discrimination against type As. But I guess us Type A's deserve getting the shaft?
