This employer who ‘does not hire liberals’ got entirely the mockery they deserved
In the first of an occasional series, awful boss of the week is surely this one, who put up a notice to tell liberals not to apply because, well, you’d better have a read for yourself.
‘I bet it’s posted right next to a sign complaining that no one wants to work anymore,’ said EggsAndMilquetoast who shared it over on Reddit.
And just in case that’s tricky to read …
Job applicants, please note:
We do not hire LIBERALS.
This is not because we disagree with their political views.
It is because working here requires superior reasoning, logic and reading comprehension skills, and in our experience, liberals are deficient in those areas.
We have found that they make decisions based on their emotions, not logic. This would be very detrimental to our business.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
And it got entirely the level of mockery you’d hope it would.
‘Posting this sign is an extremely emotional thing to do.’
‘Maybe it is for the better. You know what kind of person your boss would be.
‘Oh absolutely. This whole sign feels like coded language for “we’ll find any excuse to commit wage theft” and “oh you’re sick and can’t come to work? F-ck you!”
“They make decisions based on their emotions” – We, on the other hand, share our emotions in passive-aggressive notes posted on the wall …’
“We regret any inconvenience this may cause”.
‘Bro, you just eliminated a shit ton of applicants because you were honest about your shitty hiring practices. The only person you inconvenienced is yourself.’
‘Thats called projecting. And delusion.’
‘The irony is not lost on me that these same people who proclaim facts over feelings don’t even believe in actual facts or science or reason or logic or anything else.’
People wondered if it’s a legal thing to discriminate like this and apparently it is, according to the original poster.
‘I think it actually IS legal in the US, at least on a federal level.
‘National laws here only prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
‘Nothing about political affiliation.’
‘So you could be refused a job based on your voting preference? That’s insane.’
‘Your vote is secret, but if your car has a Bernie sticker on it you won’t get the job.
‘Personally I would apply to this job and torch liberals throughout the interview so I’d get hired, then try to unionise the staff.’
