An Ohio community college demanded that a construction crew stop working on campus until it removed a “Men Working” sign that an administrator deemed “sexist.”

Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio, made the call in mid-November after a female employee raised concerns that the construction company’s sign was too biased, WKEF-TV reported.

The construction company, Jcrane Inc., told the local news station that it has used such signs “frequently and have never had a problem before.”
