Couple of week ago i was in my local job centre doing the obvious - looking for work. I noticed on the advisor's table the usual, few bits and pieces
about jobs going and then this little gem about learning some skills in Customer service, business admin, office work and childcare. So i picked up
the leaflet thinking "Hey, this could be really useful for me, i could learn a few things and it could get me going in the right direction"
Then i read its for Black and Ethnic Minorities.
Here is the leaflet i scanned and uploaded to photobucket.
Or Link if the above does not work
I picked up the leaflet and had the following short conversation with my advisor:
Me: "This is a bit naughty isnt it?"
Advisor: "Hmm?" *looking at the leaflet*
Me: "Well, it says for only black and ethnic's... Its discrimination.."
Advisor: *Mumble mumble* "What jobs did you apply for last week"
Not a care in the world!
I personally think this leaflet should be removed. The role of a job centre is to help people back into work no matter what race, age, gender or
sexual orientation you are. If this 3rd party wishes to get certain
people on their government funded course then it should do the leg work and
stop advertising in public places.
As a while british female i am offended
by this leaflet and im still in half a mind to write a
complaint up about it.
This is 2012, The discrimination needs to stop on all sides only then can we start being equal to one another.
