College Official: Construction Site Must Replace ‘Sexist’ Men Working Sign

The “Men Working” sign is a standard fixture at construction sites, warning passersby that they should be on guard due to potentially dangerous work. That doesn’t seem controversial, but an Ohio college official has declared it anti-women.

At Ohio’s Sinclair Community College, Elizabeth Verzi, the school’s Manager of Construction and Planning, ordered the crew to remove a Men Working sign that she called “sexist.”

The incident occurred the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, as an all-male construction crew from the company JCrane was working in an area of Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. The crew was told to immediately cease all work until the “sexist sign” was removed. Crew foreman Matt Peters initially thought the request was a joke, and the work continued. Sinclair employee Jim Fauzy appeared on site to say that the men needed to stop immediately until the Men Working sign was gone.

Breitbart News spoke to foreman Matt Peters, who confirmed that Liz Verzi told him in a meeting that the sign was sexist and should be replaced with a “Crew Working” sign. Peters quoted Ms. Verzi as saying, “That sign is sexist and it’s not up for discussion.”

    It’s SEXIST? Great! When Elizabeth Verzi buys the NEW ONES and pays a worker to replace and return the OLD ones to the own – she can have it her way!

    Until then – shaddup – unless YOUR money pays for it live with it.

    ALSO – when the majority of people working on THAT job site are FEMALE then and ONLY then does she have an excuse to create weak argument toward trivial nonsense.

    Let’s be realistic … signs are typically cheaper with less lettering.

    Thats akin to saying MANKIN Do refer to the human species is sexist. I might say to Elizabeth Verzi “Take your head out of your a$$ and worry about IMPORTANT stuff…
