As a reward of last year's 'excellent employee',recently I got a free trip to travel Italy.But the thing is,being the only female of a group of seven,I was the ONLY one to be rejected.I almost cried when I heard the news.The feeling ls like that I dont pass an exam.I have been looking forward to this trip and I even promised to buy an AC milian T-shirt for my younger sister,but now my dreams were broken.My boss told me the reason being rejected including, 1.female 2.single 3.being a nurse before 4.speaking english fluently So they consider I have the intendency to immigrate in europe. I personly think it is just prejudice,what do you think?

What a crappy regulation! I think that's too much discrimation. Personally, I didn't think that such things still exist today, but unfortunately you've been a victim of one. Sorry to hear that. I hope you can do something about it, like sue your company or tell the incident to the authorities.

Yes,I have an Amercian friend who told me exactly the same.I hate to say that my country is not as powerful as the U.S,or I would never be treated like this.But I am still proud of my motherland and deeply convinced one day my dream will come true through hard-working:-)
