The New York City Commission on Human Rights has ordered Michael and Jennifer Colbert, owners of a Welsh pub, to pay $2,500 for placing a discriminatory job ad. The ad said their pub, the Long Bow, was seeking a bartender or barmaid who could "help enhance the customers' experience of being in a British pub and all the things that go with a British pub." The ad also said that "Being British definitely works in your favor." Michael, who is from Wales, said being British was never a requirement, but commission officials said it's illegal even to prefer someone from a particular country.
