Is it possible that some high school graduates dislike or hate GED test takers? I was really surprised when I found this quote on the Internet.
The high school diploma needs to have more weight than the GED. I stayed in school damnit, and I should get priority when being considered for a job.
Class Warfare: high school graduates versus people with GEDs
I suppose it’s possible. Finding one person raising my awareness about this attitude doesn’t make it true. But is it true?
You are a high school graduate and you have no plans of going to college. In your town there still are jobs that require only a high school degree. But you find yourself competing with people who “only” passed the GED. How does that make you feel?
Well, some people believe they should get priority in a job application with their high school degree over a person with a GED.
I’ve discussed this before. But now I’m learning more about discrimination against people with GEDs
Employers Discriminate against people with GEDs
I have read of cases where employers prefer high school graduates. That’s their right. And unfortunately, we know there’s GED job discrimination.
Some Federal Government Job Programs Discriminate against people with GEDs
I’ve written about this before. Some Federal job programs discriminate against people with GEDs. Rather than accept people with GEDs, some federal job programs purposely exclude GED graduates.
High School Graduates may not be too Friendly
Well, it may not be discrimination. But some high school graduates don’t like competing against people with GEDs. When they become managers in the work place, they may choose not to hire GED graduates.
Do High School Graduates Hate GED Students?
In an economy where there is extreme competition for every job, animosity can grow. I’ve heard college graduates complain about people with masters degrees trying to get their job. Certainly, for the lesser skilled jobs, there is competition between high school graduates and people who passed their GED test. Here’s hoping that high school graduates do not hate people who studies and then passed their GED.
