Antisemitism is nothing new.
About a year ago, ResumeBuilder.com surveyed 1,131 U.S. hiring managers and recruiters about their views of Jewish individuals and their perception of antisemitism in the workplace. Of those surveyed – remember, these are the people making the hiring decisions — 29% said antisemitism is acceptable in their company, and 33% said antisemitism is common in their workplace.
CBS News noted that earlier this year, the Anti-Defamation League released a in which it recorded 3,697 antisemitic incidents nationwide in 2022, the most since since ADL began tracking the statistic in 1979.
After Hamas terrorists attacked Israel on October 7, 2023, killing more than 1,400 people, antisemitic incidents in the United States have risen 400%, and the ADL observed a near-1,000% surge in violent messages mentioning Jews and Israel on Telegram after the Hamas attack
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the enforcer of federal workplace anti-discrimination laws, has condemned antisemitism unanimously. However, American businesses also need to do their part to address the problem.
