    ISSUES: Rep. Rod Blum

    AGAINST

    Diversity

    Diversity refers to differences in racial or ethnic classifications, age, gender, religion, philosophy, physical abilities, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, or any other distinguishing factor. Most politicians are in favor of diversity. They differ on whether diversity should be legislated.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans primarily protest diversity propositions because they feel the measures would force businesses to hire and give promotions based on race, gender, and other factors instead of skills and accomplishments. They also feel the focus on diversity creates divisive labels rather than an inclusive atmosphere. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats back the bill to repeal wealthy business tax cuts to fund proactive measures like education and a diverse resume pool that businesses can use to find qualified and diversified candidates. source


    AGAINST
