If you have found that Indians or Asians make better cleaners, you must not mention that
A cinema has been slammed on social media after a job ad said an Indian or Asian was preferred for a contract cleaner position.
The Gumtree advertisement was posted on Sunday for the job of cleaning 12 Event cinemas on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
A subcontractor was sacked for posting the racist ad asking for someone to work at Maroochydore, the Sunshine Coast Daily reports.
'This is cleaning of cinemas in Maroochydore Event Cinemas - 12 cinemas, seven days a week is $900 a week. Prefer Indian or Asian, no experience needed,' it said.
Australian Regional Media said the ad was taken down on the same day it was posted after critical comments were posted on Birch, Carroll and Coyle Maroochydore's Facebook page.
A man, who only wished to be known as Ken, said he sacked the subcontractor for placing the ad, only three months after hiring him.
