Uproar over job advertisement that discriminates against parents of young children

omg 13/09/2018

You would think in 2018 we would be getting past discriminating against people but it seems an Irish oil company isn't, and it's job advert posted on a recruitment website has certainly ruffled a few feathers. 

The role at the oil company is an office job, and in the advertisement they state that they are looking for a "person for answering the phone and computer skills" with "a good knowledge of Dublin [Ireland]."

And while those requests seem pretty standard in job descriptions, it was the line "People with young children need not apply" that has caused a stir.

The advert has since been taken down from the job search website, with people all over the internet voicing their opinion on it.
