Barely four months after dismissing its entire Nigerian Cabin Crew, Virgin Atlantic has begun a recruitment exercise for new set of cabin crew.
This latest action gives credence to the cries of the Nigerian crew that their sack was not an economic decision like the airline was telling the world but a clear case of racial discrimination.
In an advertisement on its website titled:Jobs of the week February 1st:
“January might be over, but that’s no reason to give up on the New Year’s Resolutions of new career paths. Check out some of the hottest jobs going at Virgin this week and make a change… Cabin Crew, Virgin Atlantic
