In response to “No Workers With Tattoos” (Sept. 8-14), I am in charge of hiring at a local business in Potsdam. I hire employees for what’s on the inside, for their intelligence, creativity, knowledge, work ethic and personality. When someone comes into an interview with body art, it displays a sense of individuality, confidence and an open mind. Personally, I want those kinds of people working for me. I don’t care if someone comes in painted purple, as long as they are qualified and capable to do the job assigned to them. Should I also discriminate based on someone’s awful eye makes up, their hair-do or if their purse matches their outfit?
