Prague firm humiliates Romanies
9. 10. 2009
Romany workmen from Slovakia, repairing pavements in the centre of Prague, are wearing yellow T-shirts with the inscription "I should have worked harder at school" implying that the job they are doing is socially inferior.
The T-shirts are a part of a commercial advertising campaign by the server www.skoly.cz, which emphasises the importance of education. The T-shirts were given to the employees by the Šlehofer company. The workmen agreed to put them on in return for beer and cigarettes. They do not think it is humiliating to wear these T-shirts.
"They don't mind, they are not particularly intelligent, anyway," says the employer of the workmen Frantisek Šlehofer.
