New EEOC data by state

Curious about how your state stacks up on the bigotry index?  Well, wonder no more--the EEOC has now published a state by state summary of its discrimination statistics.  As far as I can tell, the data is virtually useless, unless you are writing some type of research paper on long term trends in changing perceptions of the workforce about federal discrimination law, or want to scare potential clients into using your services.

But if you want to know what percentage of the national genetic discrimination cases are found in your state, this is the site for you.  E.g.,

Somebody at the Commission probably got a nice performance bonus and raise out of this little project, so I encourage you to take advantage of viewing what your tax dollar hath wrought.  Happy perusing...
