A new commissary recently opened on a military base staffed by Marine and Air Force personnel. As a result, 18 new jobs were created for military dependents. The jobs were posted for a week, and in that time 36 Marine dependents and 20 Air Force dependents applied for them. The commissary hired 9 Marine dependents and 9 Air Force dependents. The Marine commander on base is furious about the distribution of hirees and alleges that discrimination was practiced against the Marines in hiring. The commissary insists that service designation played no part in hiring, and that the charges of discrimination have no foundation. Which side appears to be more correct in this argument?
