A contractor, working for Coles, had posted a job ad in Gum Tree online site for cleaners in a shopping centre in Hobart, Tasmania. In this ad, Indians and Asians were asked to not apply.
That is disgusting, racist and illegal.
Anti-discrimination laws prohibit such behaviour.
Rightly, the Anti-discrimination commissioner took a notice of it and has decided to investigate it. The ad has now been pulled out.
I believe that people who have the idea of racial supremacy or look down upon other races are idiots and sick.
It is important that this contractor and Gum Tree are punished for this illegal behaviour. Coles too must deal with this contractor sternly.
Such practices and people have no place in multicultural Australia. Australia has long moved on from the days of dreaded “White Australia Policy” but some losers are stuck to the past.
This is idiotic in a country where close to half of the population were either born overseas or have at least one parent born overseas.
Thankfully, these things are uncommon but even one example is “Not on and not acceptable”!
