Metro Trains Melbourne have recently advertised for more trainee train drivers to bolster their ranks, to replace experienced train drivers who have retired early due to their aggressive and oppressive management policies.
Staff morale at Metro Trains is in the toilet with multiple employees stating the same thing: “Not a single person company wide will do them any favours.”
This out-of-touch management is not helping themselves with their new applicants with one question on the application:
What is your sexual orientation?
Sure, applicants have the option of “I would rather not provide.” But what business is it of theirs anyway?
As one applicant put it: “How does my sexual orientation affect my ability to drive a train?”
