You Must Be Female to Work This Pizza Counter

Skeevy? Maybe, maybe not. Illegal? Perhaps. This unnamed Teele Square pizzeria is specifically seeking a female for a part-time job doing "telephone orders and walk in customer orders, keeping work area clean and organized, and helping out at sub (not grill) and pizza station." Maybe they think men can't keep the counter clean? Maybe they're hoping a female will attract more orders?

From the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission: "It is illegal for an employer to publish a job advertisement that shows a preference for or discourages someone from applying for a job because of his or her race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information."
