Political Correctness

I had to scratch my head and wonder today when I had cause to ring the jobsearch employer line. Nothing major, but the nice lady at the other end took the time to warn me about some important new rules that have just been brought in.

Apparently, I am not allowed to use the word "junior" in a job advertisement, with the only exception being to describe a junior rate of pay.

Seriously? This is so laughable, and yet I find myself thinking perhaps I should be writing to some federal ministers asking for a list of banned words that I am no longer allowed to use.

Alternatively, I might place a job ad and make it my business to use the word so many times it gives some bean counter a migraine.

It’s just another example of where government should get out of our lives and leave us to live them.
