Everyone knows that working in security careers is no easy task, but one man didn't expect to have this much trouble. Jay Bauer is suing the FBI for making their testing standards stricter for men looking to enter that career path. He claims that he was only able to do 29 out of the required 30 push ups for the fitness test. Despite being at the head of the class in every other regard, he was disqualified based solely on that one pushup. Bauer then goes on to say a female taking the test, who was lagging behind all other applicants during the entire process, was given a second chance after she failed her first attempt.
According to ABC News, "Bauer said female new agent trainees became special agents despite completing fewer than half the number of push-ups and scoring fewer overall points than he did on even the female version of the physical fitness test (PFT)."
Do you think men and women should have different standards for this or should they all have to have the same requirements?
