Krystal Marceau, Cheryl Hunter Ethics PI242 ZZ, Final essay. When reading this case study, I thought to myself on how many male teaches I have had over the years that have had facial hair, and I lost track when I could not count on my fingers and toes anymore. I feel it is not right to discriminate against someone for how they look. People are different in many ways and many people like to express themselves with how they look or dress.

The man could go to the court system and fight for his position on his behalf of discriminating against him for the way he looks. Probably not wanting the job after knowing the reason for not hiring him, but to prove my point would be more of what I would fight for. This man could also take some consequence with not saving his facial hair. Him and his family could have been depending on this job, the man might also think to himself that with this facial hair he would never get a teaching job, and maybe he should just stick it out and get rid of his facial hair despite on how his feels about his it. To me this is not right; someone having to sacrifice something they do not want to please someone
