    “Its crazy that fact that if someone is arab and they apply for job they don't get hired but if they change their name they do. Things need to change in these workplaces. People need to realise that we are not that different.” — JasonST, 17 Mar 2011

    “I agree with her on the fact that if you have values that you don't put into practice daily, you lose your ability to perform them fully over time. If you deny these well trained people a work environment where they can help their companies grow, as well as personally grow, all their training will be a waste. ” — Stephen--Roy, 17 Mar 2011

    “It makes absolutely no sense as to why employers don't accept these people into their working environments. Honestly, the government needs to step in and fix this situation, or we at least need to find some other way of fixing it. We obviously have a shortage of working doctors, but many immigrants searching for work. I, personally, wouldn't mind having a foreign doctor, and I don't see why anyone should.” — Gabe, 17 Mar 2011

    “Everyone should have a chance for an interview especially if they have degrees and Ph.Ds. People need to stop separating everyone in groups because of where they are from or what colour skin they have.” — Brandon, 17 Mar 2011
