I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the help wanted ads here in Mexico this morning, to see what kind of work was on offer. As I was perusing the ads I noticed that many of them are VERY specific about “qualifications” that have nothing to do with the job in question.  Many of the ads specifically state the age and sex of the persons they are looking for. Coming from the US, where this sort of hiring discrimination is illegal (at least on paper), this was a bit of a shock to me.

    totally know what you mean! when I got back to Malaysia and saw jobs wants ads like ” ..Chinese girl only…” sounds more like a personal ads ad the back of the free newpapers in town.
