Ethics 301 Tui Case 4 Essay

660 words - 3 pages

Affirmative action has been a very important issue in the workplace over the last two decades. It has brought a very politically charged debate to many people who have valid points on both sides of the spectrum. The Deontological view for affirmative action would say that groups that were harmed in the past have a right to be compensated with a job while others would feel that only the best person for the job deserves to get it. The utilitarian view for affirmative action would say that minorities deserve it because they would otherwise not have the opportunity while others would argue that it is bad to allow minorities to receive special treatment. I do not believe that affirmative action is fair to anyone. As Americans, we strive have a strong work ethic. It is very unethical to take someone race into account when hiring. This is really disheartening when someone is hired based on their race over someone who is better qualified for the position. The idea ...view middle of the document...

However, they fought to protect the freedom of our country along with our core values and beliefs. One of those freedoms that they fought for is being able to run a business as you see fit and being able to strive to do what you want in your professional career. This is not possible with affirmative action. It gives a group an unfair advantage over another. Sometimes, the much more qualified applicant cannot do anything possible to get the job over another because they cannot change their race. It comes down to be a punishment for someone who invested into higher education and tried his or her best to find a career in the land of opportunity. Forcing these more qualified applicants away shows them that we do not live in the land of opportunity anymore. I do feel that we should definitely consider that the applicant served our country with pride because veterans make great employees. However, only taking the disabled veteran status into consideration would be unethical to all of the applicants.
The Disabled Veterans Affirmative Action Program (DVAAP) is a group that works with government organizations to set up and keep an up to date plan on hiring disabled veterans. This group provides a similar function to other affirmative action groups that look out for racial minorities and women. However, other affirmative action groups exist because of voluntary hiring practices. The DVAAP exists because it is required under Federal law. Government agencies are required to have a disabled veteran hiring plan and to keep it up to date by submitting yearly documents to DVAAP.
I can see the argument on both sides of the issue. Many feel that disabled veterans should get preferential treatment when being hired because they served their country and were disabled as a part of their service. However, they fought for freedom and I do not see forced hiring practices as freedom in the workplace. Disabled veterans along with women and all minorities should be given an equal opportunity in the hiring process for any career. However, it should be the best person for the job and not filling the quota for the job.
