Hidden Camera Exposes An Employer's Horrible Anti-Gay Hiring Practice

This is infuriating.

Technically, job interviewers should only evaluate you on the skills you have say you have, your attitude and your composure. Not who you choose to love. 

But that allegedly wasn't the case for the company that the dudes over at STHLM Panda secretly recorded. 

After one of the YouTuber's followers tipped the guys off that he had been fired because he was gay, they decided to look into the matter. They both applied to the job and were asked to come to a group interview.

They posed the question: Does sexual orientation matter in the workplace?

According to this experiment, sadly so. 

Here's what went down:


They both go into the interview and Konrad reveals that he's not that qualified.

He mentions liking to play 'FIFA,' a video game, and other unnecessary comments. Olle pipes up that he likes those things, too, but brings up actual work experience.

The interviewer then sees Konrad out and seems interested in knowing when Olle could start the job.

But then things take a sharp turn when Olle mentions that he lives with his boyfriend. 

The interviewer's temperament changes.

He then quickly tells Olle about other people applying for the job, as a warning. He showed him quickly out, ignoring Olle's outstretched hand.

But then, something even worse happened. The interviewer contacted Konrad, who had been dismissed from the initial interview and had no work experience. 

He got the job.

When he went in to 'accept' the offer, he confronted the interviewer about there being lots of applicants, which is what he told Olle.

It was clear something fishy was happening. So Konrad did what was best: ripped up the hiring letter. 

"I don't think I would like it here."

Though this was an experiment in Sweden — and even though gay marriage is legal in the U.S. — members of the LBGT can be legally fired by their employers in 29 of the 50 states for no other reason than being gay. 

That is, if they can get the job in the first place. 

Freedom is having a fair chance to make a living no matter who you choose to love. 

Watch the full experiment below:

We wouldn't' want to work there either.
