A construction crew was forced to stop working until they removed the Men Working sign at a community college in Ohio, because it was described as “sexist and non-inclusive.”

A college administrator complained about the wording of the men working sign at Sinclair Community College in downtown Dayton.

The female employee complained about the sign and, according to Fox News, she also suggested several alternatives to the crew, such as “Construction Zone.”

The workers complied with the demands, but stopped working until it was removed.

Sinclair has nearly 30,000 students, making it one of the largest community colleges in America.

The school takes pride in its diversity.

“The concept of diversity at Sinclair Community College encompasses the acceptance, inclusiveness, engagement, and mutual respect among students, faculty, staff, administrators, and members of the broader community,” says a statement on the school’s website.

While the general concept is understood, it seems as if it is an overreaction to a seemingly non-issue. There are much bigger fights to wage in the world, but I guess it can get slow in Dayton, Ohio.
