'Men only' job ad posts land Facebook in boiling hot water with ACLU


Not defending the companies in any way, but I haven't seen this mentioned in the comments:

I believe it costs more to advertise to a larger group of people. The assumption might be that "women wouldn't be interested anyway, so why waste advertising budget on showing them the ad.". Again, not defending this view but it could be part of the reason (which is still sexist/discriminatory).
