(( The story was about the lawsuit filed by Greg Holdren, a former employee at the Transkrit company.
He was he was fired for not meeting production goals.
But Holdren said several other press operators, including a woman, had worse performance records.
He says that's reverse discrimination and is taking Transkrit to court.
A viewer in Blacksburg says: "In the interview, the man and the news reporter made it a point that a woman who also works at this company was not fired even though she was not performing as expected. This upsets me because this man said there were many other people who also were not performing on the job but only this one woman was pointed out as a problem. I understand that reverse discrimination can occur, but if many other men were not fired along with one woman, that is hardly discrimination of gender. Perhaps it is another form of discrimination. I am frustrated that women constantly have to prove that they deserve the jobs they have and if they don't perform they should be the first to go, not men in the same position. I have learned from personal experience that I have to work much harder than my male co-workers to maintain my position. I would appreciate in the future if your reporters would not imply that women should be the first to be fired when performances on the job are low.
