Please stay on the dole

Lingerie retailer Ann Summers is threatening to take the government to court after a decision not to allow it to advertise vacancies through Job Centres. A rule banning the advertising of jobs in the sex or personal services industry was cited, though Ann Summers shops are not sex shops, which need to be licensed. A government representative also claimed it would be unfair to force job seekers to consider roles in industries to which they may have moral objections, but Job Centres still routinely advertise jobs in the military and butchers' shops.
