A job centre

Speaking of unreliable - how about journalists who can't spell "center" reliably?

It's a British thing.

It's hard to memorise one's favourite spelling, so I won't criticise one's skilful judgement in this arguement.

Thanks fark and daily mail, I needed that laugh!

Oh man, this goes great with the discussion further down about whether or not it's discrimination against fat people to offer skinny people a higher than normal discount.

With stories like this, I always wonder why someone can't track down the actual individual who made or communicated the ridiculous decision and say, "What the hell were you thinking?"

Not the company, not a spokeperson, not some HR rep, but the actual idiot who's responsible for the whole debacle.

The sentence "for a 'reliable workers'" discriinates against my sense of grammar.

Good old Daily Mail.. story published, last bit of story indicates story is not in fact true (in this case the fact the ad is in place both on signs and the website), whargarbl commences regardless.

Coming from an English publication the spelling is correct. "Center" is Americanized.

"I want an employee who can perform the required job functions." Sorry, can't ask for that.

Try as I might, I can't seem to convince my wife to let me own firearms, which will come in quite handy when the world becomes completely bat-shiat insane in the next decades.

I sometimes think I'm living in a dream. What is wrong with the neurons, people? Get some treatment.
 
2010-01-26 03:43:19 PM  
I don't believe this story for a second.

In fact, the story itself indicates that the principal complaint on which the story relies isn't true.
 
2010-01-26 03:43:29 PM  
But who is going to speak up for the long haired freaky people?
 
2010-01-26 03:43:35 PM  
Its articles like this that make me ashamed to be british....

"The Job Centre in Thetford, Norfolk, said the advert discriminated against unreliable people".... REALLY?!?! There are people that identify as unreliable? Stupid Daily Fail

Completely made-up alarmist article from the Daily Mail uses the word ridiculous four times.

My irony meter is pegged.

When your corporations are scared shiatless of being sued over discrimination against the lazy there's something seriously farking WRONG with your legal system.

Lazy people in America don't sue over employment discrimination, they get on welfare.

Over / under, until this thread devolves into a great discussion about the veracity of what is written in the Daily Mail or as many farkers like to call it the "Daily Fail" ?

Farker 1: ZOMG its the Daily Fail! bunch of BS, tabloid crap 11!!!!111!!
Farker 2: Did you actually do any research as to the accuracy of what was written or did you just dismiss it outright because it was in the Daily Mail?
Farker 1: I didnt even read the link because I didnt want to give the Daily Fail any clickies.
Farker 2: LoL, farkin Nanny State.

/Oh wait this has already happened a few posts up...

I understand it may be your favourite thing to analyse fark links for spelling differences so you can criticise them for it, your judgement seems to be coloured by your limited knowledge of the Queen's English here. Perhaps you could write a spellcheque programme that helps you see the difference? I'm not trying to start an arguement with you, just trying to have a meaningful dialogue on the differences between American English and the British version.

This thread works well with the Whole Foods thread. My point here is much more clear but remains consistent.

Discrimination is not always a bad thing.

Teknowaffle: Is it me or are British women getting uglier and uglier?


Not sure if this is the case, but their bust size keeps getting larger. Probably shouldn't say that though as it discriminates against the itty bitty crowd.

In America decisions like this can be shamed into retreat. In the UK it seems that shame piled onto people like this just cements their resolve.

This is what modern socialism does to humanity. Look at the generations of people in New Orleans who have never worked a day in their life? That is what the modern governments want. That is how they control you.

It's you, they have always been that ugly.

WTF UK? I know these 'nanny state' threads are quite trollish, but goddamn, at some point the half truths add up.

Finally! If only I could work for Whole Foods in the UK. I could be a crappy worker AND get a 30% discount.

Sweet!

A job centre has been slammed for refusing to display an advert for a 'reliable workers' - because it discriminated against unreliable applicants.

A Jobcentre Plus worker claimed that the word 'reliable' meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers.

...the following day she was told that her advert would not be displayed. She said it was because they could have cases against them for discriminating against unreliable people.

She claimed that the job centre could be sued by unreliable people if they placed the advert on their 'job points' but told Nicole it will remain on their website.


I love how the article manages to use the same sentence four times. There were four times where the same sentence was used in that article - I love it. Something was done four times in that article that I love, and that thing was to use the same sentence. There was a number of times that this sentence was used, and I love the fact that that number was four.

Last time I griped about taxes going to the illegals and the lazy, someone on fark told me to just pay my taxes; else rioting in the streets, be practical blah blah.

Well, I've thought it over. What's more practical $500 a month welfare check, or a 32¢ bullet?

Put that in your column and print it!
