59289The Job Listing - for men only
- Oct 1 7:27 AM(This post is for the guys only. All you gals need to go find a shirt
to iron, or something to cook, or whatever...)
So, will the BHS hire the best person for the Director of Music &
Education position, or only the best male applicant? I noticed the
listing discriminates against the fairer sex right from the giddyup:
"Job Opening: Director of Music and Education
This position requires:
Membership in the Barbershop Harmony Society.
Unless the BHS is prepared to make an exception in this instance, it
is hardly an equal opportunity, given this particular requirement
eliminates 50% of the population. How clever.
Really, are we still that far behind? Good Grief! We need a manager,
an imaginative, humble servant of the style to keep us going and move
us forward. I'll admit it's only partially sarcastic to say I believe
ANYTHING would be an improvement over the last regime. It's a matter
