The lazy, shiftless, unreliable masses, long the victims of discrimination, finally have a brave champion: Jobcentre Plus, and arm of the UK Government. The UK Daily Mail reports:
Recruitment boss Nicole Mamo, 48, tried to post an advert for a £5.80-an-hour domestic cleaner on her local Jobcentre Plus website.
She ended the job offer by saying that any applicants for the post 'must be very reliable and hard-working'.
But when Ms Mamo called the Jobcentre Plus in Thetford, Norfolk, the following day she was told that her advert would not be displayed
A Jobcentre Plus worker claimed that the word 'reliable' meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers.
The mother-of-two from Hertfordshire today slammed the situation as 'ridiculous'.
She said: 'I placed the advert on the website and when I phoned up to check I was told it hadn't been displayed in the job centre itself.
The Job Centre in Thetford, Norfolk, said the advert discriminated against unreliable people
'She said "oh we can't put that advert on the job points".
'She said it was because they could have cases against them for discriminating against unreliable people.
Ms. Mamo's agency supplies workers to the National Health Service, the UK's single payer healthcare system. So we have a government agency telling the government health care system that it cannot discriminate against unreliable workers.
Political correctness leads to madness.
