Employer In UK Told She Cannot Discriminate Against Unreliable Workers

From the article at the DailyMail.co.uk:
So recruitment agency boss Nicole Mamo was especially careful to ensure her advert for hospital workers did not offend on grounds of race, age or sexual orientation.

However, she hadn't reckoned on discriminating against a wholly different section of the community - the completely useless.

When she ran the ad past a job centre, she was told she couldn't ask for 'reliable' and 'hard-working' applicants because it could be offensive to unreliable people.
Is this where we're heading?

I'm sorry, I forgot workers were supposed to starve if they are "useless".

Choices have consequences.

If you don't want to invest in a useless person that is your choice and you have a right to it.
