Wait. What? City fined for hiring too many women

I can’t make this up.

A city has been fined for hiring too many women for leadership roles. According to AFP, the mayor is mocking the fine.

“I am happy to announce that we have been fined,” Hidalgo, a member of the Socialist party, told a city council meeting, adding that she had been filled with joy when she learned of the penalty.

Hidalgo said she was faulted because 11 women and only five men were named to management positions in city hall in 2018, meaning that 69% of the appointments went to women.

They stand, always off to the side

They do not seek the microphone or the spotlight

They are the sign language experts

Quickly translating what someone says

Into a message someone else needs

They are a lifeline to thousands

Especially in times of crisis

May they always have a place of honor
