Employers will not be able to ask people who apply for a job about anything, and all people must act equal. under new “act equal but wear the right tie” laws that come into force today.
Other provisions will allow bankers to compare salaries,(in private) and guarantee mothers the right to breastfeed their babies in public. Or, indeed, anyone's babies, we don't mind.
We're very broadminded and forward-looking.
Ooops, sorry, back to business.
Employers will on no account be permitted to ask young women applicants whether they might become pregnant.
Or, if they did, what would be their intentions as regards to breast-feeding.
A spokesman for the Institute of Directors said:
“Look here, who the fuck wrote these laws?
….What?…....Harriet Harman?............Oh, I see, just for a laugh....and we can …....very good, carry on. “
