Woman denied job because of her ghetto name – Nigeria News
A woman has been denied a job by a company because of her ghetto name.
The woman applied for a job but got a mail back from the company saying they can’t take her because her name is too “ghetto”.
Hermeisha Robinson, of Bellefontaine Neighbors, Missouri, took to her Facebook page to reveal that she’s hurt and distraught after she applied for a job with Mantality Health in Chesterfield only for them to discriminate against her because of her name.
The young mother said she knows she has what it takes to fill the position, yet was not given a chance.
Her post has now gone viral and officials of the company have replied, claiming they were hacked and the email was sent by the hacker.
Kevin Meuret, the CEO of the Mantality Health, a clinic that treats men with low testosterone, told St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Tuesday that someone from outside Missouri hacked into its email system and they believe it’s most likely a disgruntled former employee.
Meanwhile, one of the social media users who reacted to Hermeisha’s post said she isn’t surprised by the response the lady got from the company because she once worked in a company where she was instructed to throw out all job applications that have an “ethnic” name.
