Some Companies Hire Only Certain Sun Signs

Some companies may be choosing their new hires based on sun signs.  Most are, I am sure, very quiet about it.  But one Austrian company actually put the sun signs desired in their ‘Help Wanted’ ad.

The Salzburg insurance company specified that only those born under Aries, Taurus, Leo, Capricorn, and Aquarius need apply. Three fixed signs (sorry, Scorpio) and two cardinal signs. Understandably, this ad created some protests that it may be discriminatory.

However, the company responded with its own statistics that showed its best employees were natives of those signs.  And because their employees covered the gamut of race, creed, age, and ethnic backgrounds, the ad satisfied the requirements of the law.

The company asserted its right to hire based on its research, and after reviewing their records, the government had to abandon any plan to prosecute.

I had a bit of trouble actually tracking down this ad, but here is the story. The story appeared in the Daily Mail here:

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
