Revise Title VII: Remove the paragraph allowing discrimination against communists
Title VII, the federal law which prohibits employers from engaging in discriminatory employment practices, exempts members of the Communist Party from protection. In effect, it allows employers to freely discriminate against and/or harass employees who are members of the Communist Party or affiliated organizations. The clause which allows discrimination against communists needs to be removed since it is discriminatory, unconstitutional, outdated and is a violation of human rights.
Why is this important?
This law is a violation of First Amendment rights. If Federal law allows one organization to be lawfully discriminated against, other organizations can be added to the list. An injustice to one is an injustice to all.
