An Auckland Lone Star restaurant has removed an advertisement for waiting staff from the No Jab Jobs website.

Lone Star New Lynn posted the advertisement on the site four days ago saying the family restaurant “will not be discriminating either whilst employing or serving our guests”.

On Wednesday, the job listing had been removed.

Lone Star New Lynn owner Brendan Pascoe and the Lone Star franchise have been approached for comment.

The No Jab Jobs website was created to help unvaccinated people leaving their jobs due to their vaccination status, find employers willing to take them on.

In October, Wilson’s Parking reiterated its support for Covid-19 vaccination after a fake parking enforcement officer advert was posted on No Jab Jobs.

The New Lynn Lone Star restaurant will enter the traffic light system at red, along with the rest of Auckland, and will be able to serve up to 100 people.

But vaccine passes must be shown and verification is advised.

If businesses do not comply with My Vaccine Pass requirements they can only offer contactless service and can not open at all under the red and orange settings, unless offering takeaways.
