Discrimination at workplace

15 % of US workers have experienced some form of discrimination in the workplace in 2005, according to a Gallup Poll conducted in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Promotion and salary are most likely areas of discrimination.
The poll found that women are more than twice as likely to report that they have been discriminated against in the 2005 (22%) as are men (9%). Asians, within other racial and ethnic groups, are almost triple as likely to complain that they have been discriminated (31%) against as are whites (12%).
