Cathrin Rohrbacher doesn't understand the world any more. The Graz petrol station leaseholder had placed an advert to find new staff. "Petrol station employee with excellent knowledge of German and cars" said the job advert. Instead of application four months later she got a letter from the Graz magistrate, Criminal Department. Rohrbacher had "violated the standardised requirement for discrimination-free job advertisements", said the letter with reference to paragraphs 23 and 24 of the Equality of Treatment Act.

The charge: the language knowledge required is "excessive and unreasonably high" for the specific job. Under some circumstances, this would exclude applications whose native language is not German.

"We have strict technical, hygienic and general safety provisions", counters Rohrbacher and points to a ring binder with 200 pages: "This has to be understood, otherwise when handling oil, fuels and lubricants they would endanger not only their own lives but those of other people." It has nothing to do with hostility to foreigners.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive!

This is the tale of any multicultural society, in which the authorities and the people get tangled in a web of deceit and deception. It corrupts society at every level.

No one wins but everybody looses.

The Graz Magistrate got his job when Graz removed the requirement that applicants for the magistrate position be able to think logically because it might discriminate against stupid people.
