"Men Working" Sign At Construction Site Called Sexist
Dayton, Ohio -- A “Men Working” sign was taken down and work stopped at a construction site at a community college in Ohio because a college employee thought the sign was sexist.
Two weeks ago, the work crew got a call telling them they had to stop working on the site and remove the sign after the manager of construction and projects for the college decided the sign was sexist.
While some don't have a problem with the "Men Working" sign, others wish it was less gender specific.
"I'd rather have crew at work or construction going on, something more broad," said Alex Henry, Dayton resident.
“While it may not have been necessary to suggest that work be stopped, Sinclair stands by its commitment to providing an environment that is inclusive and non-discriminatory," according to a statement from the college.
The sign was taken down.
According to Sinclair, the project is still underway, on budget and on schedule.
