Career Advice - How To Deal With Discrimination On The Job

We all know that there are laws both state and federal that do not allow for any kind of discrimination on the job. But we also know that no matter what it does go on. It can be discrimination based on race, color, religion, age as well as sex. No matter what the laws state, you may still run into these situations and here are a few ideas on how to handle a situation that might come up while you are working.
