What if such a case were brought here, perhaps by an individual who doesn’t have a college degree and is seeking one of the many entry-level jobs where applicants won’t be considered without one, such as working a rental-car desk? Under current employment-discrimination law, wouldn’t the plaintiff have a good case?
