Visit to an Electrical and Carpentry Workshop

I spoke to a few people at an electrical and carpentry workshop around my house, about biases they face at work. These group of men, belonged to different social groups. Initially, they were hesitant to share their experiences but they opened up about the discrimination they face due to the “caste and class” they belong to.

Apart from falling prey to biases, they believe they are biased in many ways themselves but their bias IS justified. They claim, what has been done or said for generations is being said for a reason and thus they don’t think anybody can change their minds.

With a lot of effort and convincing I semi convinced them that violence or verbal attacks at people just because they are of a specific kind/caste/religion is not and will not be acceptable.
