Smalltalk: French government job agency unapologetic for strip suggestion
Fri, 3 Feb 2012
Pôle Emploi, the French government-run jobs agency, will not apologise for sending a vacancy for a stripper to a former teacher, according to website thelocal.fr.
The website says that Danièle Casadamont of Poussan in the South-West of France was less than happy with the proposition.
Speaking to a regional newspaper on Tuesday, regional director of the agency Pascal Blain said: “The offer is completely legal and there’s nothing discriminatory. This lady received it because she has subscribed to job offers proposed in her region.”
“The mails are automatic. It’s the machine that does the work,” he went on to explain.
Casadamont told a local radio station: “Letting the machine do the work, that’s the problem.”
