I did a search for discrimination complaints, and read up about them. It seems that there are many sad stories of people being ripped off. I have no way of verifying any of those stories, but I believe most of them to be true.
After a bit of reflection on those stories, I came to the conclusion that the only way to survive in this world is to be positive and appreciative of what I have been given: a job; a job helping to sell hosiery. There are many more things too. It would be great to be able to tell people where I get my product knowledge and experience from, but it is not a battle worth fighting in the next few months.
I will think about the possibility in January.
