‘LAZY people have feelings too – and when Beryl King tried to put an advert in her local job centre asking for hardworking staff, officials moved quickly to avert any harm.

They told the 57-year-old businesswoman that her ad would have to be reworded because it discriminated against people who were not industrious.

‘I’ve been running my business for 27 years and it’s getting harder to find people who want to do a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay,” she complained.

‘How long before someone says you can’t pay people for working because it discriminates against those on benefit who are paid for not working?’

Instead, she was offering £5.42 an hour for ‘warehouse packers who must be hard-working and reliable’.

Reliable! Blatant discrimination against unreliable people…’
