A council in Melbourne has banned men from applying for an ‘exciting’ job. Darebin City Council, found in the city’s north, has advertised a street sweeper role that is available to everyone who is considered non-male. That means they are opening the opportunity up to women as well as anyone who identifies as non-binary or gender non-conforming.
The job is described as a ‘permanent position, with flexibility for full time, part time, job share and flexible hours’ and pays up to $63,000 a year plus super. The street sweeper’s main task is to ensure the cleanliness of the council’s footpaths, nature strips, roads, car parks and right of ways. The council has defended excluding men from the role and said it is passionate about ‘social inclusion, sustainability, engagement and service excellence’.
7News points out that the same council recently approved a motion that seeks to ‘rid the world of nuclear weapons’. While it’s an ambitious target, it’s highly unlikely that a local council in Melbourne will be able to convince the likes of North Korea, the UK, US, Russia, France, China, India, Pakistan and Israel to give up their weapons.
When asked about the council’s recent development, Premier Daniel Andrew said: “I will not sit here ever and try and unravel the mysteries of the Darebin council” (Lad Bible).
