CHAUVINISM IN HIGH PLACES

Qatar airlines has been rocked by reports revealing its shockingly chauvinist archaic set of rules for female flight attendants.

Gulf carriers Etihad and Emirates were also blasted by the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) for its “flagrant abuses of aviation workers” — but they named Qatar Airways as the worst.

The ITF exposed unbelievable rules in the contracts for female flight attendants at Qatar Airways including; Female flight attendants can only be hired if they are single, they must remain single for five years after starting work, If they want to get married they have to ask the airline’s permission and pregnancy is a breach of contract and can lead to firing.

Unfortunately, the same sad story is standard norm in modern Nigerian banking system.
