Petition Closed

BMI is not an indicator of health or of obesity. This has been shown time and again. This practice is blatantly discriminatory for heavy people who could do the job just fine and still be in good health. This institutionalizes discrimination. Discrimination based off of weight and/or BMI should be illegal! Lets not only tell Citizens Medical Center to stop this practice, but lets tell lawmakers to make this illegal! Hire people based on merit and not on the size of their body!
