From SPAIN about The USA

“I always found very interesting the extreme care they have in the USA in order to try not to discriminate people, for instance in the case of hiring new workers for the company we had to be extremely careful with the questions we posed during the job interviews. I specifically remember that we had a small training with the questions to be avoided, among which I recall we could not ask for age or civil status or number of kids, for instance. Funny enough, when you apply for your social security number in the USA, the first thing they would ask you is to classify yourself in terms of racial origin, something that in Spain will be completely out of the question.”
