An Inclusive Litany

6/10/02

A job listing center in Bolton, England, refused to accept an advertisement asking for a "friendly" applicant for a food service job at a travel agency. The manager who requested the ad said "we were told, 'It's discriminatory because some people may perceive that they are friendly even if you don't.' " The words "motivated" and "enthusiastic" had also been banished in the past.
