“Victoria Lipnic, the new acting chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, suggested Thursday that her agency will focus on cases involving age discrimination and equal pay while exploring ways to foster job growth in companies. ‘It’s a new day, and where we can help foster employment opportunity and economic growth, that is where we will be focused,’ she declared…A former assistant secretary of labor before joining the EEOC, Lipnic had been a frontrunner at one time to head Trump’s Labor Department. Asked about how the EEOC would change under the Trump administration, Lipnic said she believes more will remain the same than will change. ‘We are an enforcement agency,’ she said, ‘and the EEOC is committed to its core values and mission, to enforce civil rights laws in the workplace.’ She then added, ‘President Trump has made it very clear that he is interested in jobs, jobs, jobs,’ and that her agency will incorporate that attitude into its policies. Currently there are four commissioners—three Democrats and Lipnic, a Republican, along with one vacancy. Also, one Democratic commissioner’s term ends on July 1, and Trump will presumably appoint Republicans to both vacancies, giving the GOP control of the agency.”

I can look at this picture and tell that Lipnic ain’t shit! Was the Civil Rights Act of 1964 created because of age discrimination? NO! Lipnic’s focused on age discrimination and not racial discrimination when numerous industries have HISTORICALLY had and still have zero and/or a gross underrepresentation of qualified African Americans and people of color employed in higher-status, high-paying positions? Lipnic needs to be removed because it’s clear she’s not the most qualified person for this position — especially now that we have a Republican controlled legislative and executive branch.
