Chinese Company Under Fire for Refusing to Hire Scorpios and Virgos
Posted on December 5, 2011
The notion that the ever-changing (and two short) zodiac has any sort of significant impact on your life or personality is a foolish one, but for one Chinese company, certain signs simply won’t do.
An English-language training company in Wuhan, China is currently under fire for refusing to hire Scorpios and Virgos.
One spokeswoman, who goes by the name Xia, stated that Scorpios are prone to mood swings while Virgos are highly critical, among other complaints.
Xia is quoted as saying, “I’ve hired people with those two star signs before, and they either liked quarreling with colleagues or they could not do the job for long.” Or maybe they were just crappy employees.
The company places preference on Capricorns, Pisces and Libras, who are considered “prioritized.”
Naturally, people are pissed, with many unemployed individuals taking to the Internet to voice their frustrations with this ridiculous policy.
Imagine what would happen if this sort of thing occurred in the States.
