Welsh Pub in New York Facing Discrimination Fine

Owners advertised for a position, wanted someone with knowledge of Welsh culture

A Welsh pub in New York is facing a fine after advertising for staff with knowledge of Welsh culture.

Michael Colbert, originally from Wrexham, and his American wife Jennifer have been accused of discrimination.

They say they face a fine of $7,500 (£4,800) if they lose their case over the LongBow pub in Brooklyn.

They claim the advert wanted someone with a "specific skill set" but the New York City Commission of Human Rights said it believed it was discrimination.
