Independent and irrefutable data show that WE are more
discriminated against at work than any other minorities and women.

These data have been shown to Labor Secretary Elaine Chao

Is it humiliating to know the above facts? NO! It is only
humiliating if we don't fight to stop such discrimination against
us now that we know. This is why you must respond to this
CALL TO ACTION.
The DOL is proposing to stop collecting data on: applicants,
hires, promotions, terminations and full-time workers by race, sex,
and ethnicity and compensation by minority or non-minority and
by women or men. The public is given till 3/21 to comment on the
proposed "rule change." 80-20 views the proposal with alarm.
We deem such data as necessary to fight discrimination against
us and to get the DOL to be more aware of its accountability to
enforce Exec. Order 11246. Please copy in
firstname.lastname@example.org. When DOL sees a lot of emails from you,
they'll know that 80-20 has AsAms' support.
Please voice opposition to the rule change and get DOL to be
aware of its accountability to enforce EO 11246 on behalf of
AsAms as well.

discriminated against at work. I also hope OFCCP
will do an Asian specific analysis of the collected data
to understand the strongly perceived and statistically
proven discrimination against Asian American at work,
especially at the glass ceiling. Enforce EO 11246 for
