Without trying to get this political or anything, I need to rant a little. I had a job interview yesterday, and everything went great. The interviewer liked me and all, and seemed to like my answers to her questions. Then at the end of the interview she said something to the effect of: "You'd be a great here and I want to hire you, but I won't because of your hair." Whatever happened to hiring someone based on merit and actions? Apparently this is not the practice of space center houston (aka the touristy part of NASA). I am extremely offended that because despite me being qualified for my position, I have to be judged by my appearance, not by what I do. Maybe I would understand if I had hair down to my shoulder or something, but its barely past my ears! To me this is no better than discriminating by ethinicity or any other reason for denying employment.
