Controversial “Help Wanted” Sign Goes Viral
An Indiana Dollar Tree gained viral attention over a polarizing help-wanted sign that critics decried as discriminatory.
The handwritten sign, which has since been removed, read: “I apologize for us closing AGAIN. My 2 new cashiers quit because I said their boyfriends couldn’t stand here for their entire shift.”
“Don’t hire Gen Z’s. They don’t know what work actually means. NOW HIRING! *Baby Boomers ONLY, thanks!”
Dollar Tree’s Vice President, Randy Guiler, addressed the controversial sign in a statement.
“We are aware that an unauthorized sign was posted at our store for a brief period of time. The handwritten message was absolutely not approved by or condoned by our Company,” Guiler said.
The manager is no longer employed by Dollar Tree.
