Outrage over Australian supermarket 'no Indians' job ad
August 29 , 2012
An Australian supermarket's cleaning firm has sparked outrage over an advert for staff that stated: "No Indians or Asians please."
The advert, which was posted on the Gumtree website, appealed for cleaners at a Coles supermarket in Hobart.
Coles, Australia's second-biggest chain, said the advert was posted by a sub-contractor and was no longer connected to the firm.
Coles added that the advert had been placed without its knowledge.
Local authorities say they are looking into the incident for racial discrimination.
Both the contractor and the Gumtree website could be found guilty of breaking the law.
