A row has broken out in Austria after a company tried to recruit workers born under certain star signs.
The Salzburg insurance company posted an advert in major newspapers seeking employees for sales and management that were born under certain constellations, claiming statistics indicated that they were the best workers.
The company is, however, sticking to its guns and a spokesman explained that the move was based on statistical research rather than superstition.
'A statistical study indicated that almost all of our best employees across Austria have one of the five star signs.
'We only decided to continue with that system and hire the best workers,' the spokesman said.

I don't think it is because it's in Austria, not sure how their laws work, but this is laughable!
I wonder how long they'll stay in business with that hiring trend.

How about only employing white people since they are statistically the best workers too, or maybe men only because they have higher IQs statistically than women?
