Not satisfied with regular SJW-enabling and social engineering, Australia’s biggest fire department has implemented a 50% female hiring quota.
Unfortunately for residents of New South Wales, Australia’s most populous state and the home of Sydney, this is only going to increase property destruction, not to mention cause serious injuries and deaths. Feminists have been appalled by the proportion of female firefighters, which presently hovers around 3-5% for Australia’s eight mainland states and territories (for good reason). The solution is one for the ages, as former Australian socialist leader, now anti-SJW crusader Mark Latham has revealed:
It wants new recruits to be able to “drag a collapsed firefighter to safety on their own”, yet to accommodate female applicants, the Physical Aptitude Test has been reduced from a 90kg [200lb] dummy drag over 20 metres [66 feet] to the relatively easy task of carrying a 30kg [65lb] weight for 10 metres [33 feet].
The price for gender “equality” has been revealed: female firefighters are now expected to carry the same load for the same distance as a 45-year-old suburban housewife bringing groceries to her car. If they do this, they can get the job ahead of a man who can carry twice or thrice that weight for much longer distances.
