For too long, potentially promising employees have been denied positions in numerous industries for having visible piercings, coloured hair, tattoos, and other alternative modifications.

These Australian citizens are being denied the opportunity to work in their chosen fields, make a living wage, get off government benefits, and contribute to society. This has a damaging effect on not only the rejected individuals but also the Australian economy.

A person’s physical appearance has very little effect on their ability to perform tasks and follow directions, so why are employers permitted to discriminate this way? You can help. Sign today to enact change and abolish the right for employers to turn away promising employees based solely on appearance.
