People in California come from many different backgrounds and many different races. Most people in California also have jobs in order to earn an income and support themselves and their families. The requirements of the jobs that people have vary, but as long as they are performing their duties adequately and meeting the requirements, then they should be able to keep their jobs.
There are some things that may be out of their control such as the company losing business, but absent those types of circumstances, whether they keep a job should be based on job performance. However, many employees are not judged based solely on their job performance. Sometimes they are treated differently simply because of their race. This would seem to be something that one might think would have been addressed a long time ago, but according to the statistics race discrimination in the workplace is still prevalent.
In 2017, there were 28,528 race discrimination claims filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). This was actually down a little bit from previous years. From 2007 to 2016 there were over 30,000 claims filed each year, and in a couple of years during that time span there were over 35,000 claims. In 2017, of the claims filed, 4,109 of them were resolved in favor of the employee and a total of $75.9 million was paid to the victims just through the EEOC. This number does not include any amounts received through private lawsuits.
Unfortunately many employees in California still endure race discrimination at work. Sometimes the discrimination happens during the interview process and the person does not get a certain job. However, it also occurs after people have jobs as well. If the person is fired because of their race they may have a wrongful termination claim and may be able to pursue compensation for the damages they suffered as a result of it.
