Number 1 Recruiters is more than just a staffing and consulting firm. We firmly believe in the right of every individual and business to proudly express and vocalize their religious, political, and personal ideology. No individual should feel oppressed to speak freely or conduct themselves in a way that hinders their ability to be proud of their beliefs.
Thomas Jefferson once said – “The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts as are only injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”
As Americans, we have a right to offend and be offended. We are diverse not only in race, color, nationality, and religion, but we are diverse in thought as well. There should be no regulation on how we are to think as free individuals. Jefferson new that because of who we are as a country that not everyone is going to believe or think the same way. It neither picks my pocket or breaks my leg tells us that if your way of thinking or believing doesn’t take away from me or physically harm me then what does it matter if we see things differently.
At N1R, we are inclusive to the rights of each and every American, regardless of their political affiliation, race, color, nationality, gender, religion, etc. We believe in the United State of America, its people, and what this experiment represent to the rest of the world.
Respect is a two way street, and we should always respect the difference of opinion, but always be willing to discuss the issues as civilized human beings.
