Welsh pub Longbow in New York discrimination case

A Welsh pub in New York is facing a fine from the city's human rights commission after posting an advert looking for staff with knowledge of Welsh culture.

Michael Colbert, originally from Wrexham, who runs the Longbow Pub in Brooklyn with his American wife Jennifer, have been accused of discrimination.

They claim their job advert appealed for someone with a "specific skill set", but the New York City Commission of Human Rights said it believed it was discrimination.
