Florida-based Interm Healthcare has an immediate opening for an LPN/RN in Upstate, New York.
But according to the newspaper ad the company took out, Haitians need not apply.
The ad looking to fill a position available in Rockland County, New York, was posted in the Pennysaver newspaper on October 15th, reads "no hatians" in the posting.
As for Interim Healthcare, President Katherine McNally, in full damage control spin-mode, she had this to say:
"We sincerely apologize for the offensive nature of the ad. Our deepest apologies goes out to the Hatian community, especially Hatian nurses."
McNally says she has no idea how the ad happened, or who was behind it.
I have a good idea... Call Nataliya or Annie, who are both listed in the ad at 845 425-2655 and ask them.
Be sure to tell them how you feel.
