NSW One Nation Leader Mark Latham says a lot of men in the workplace feel like they are “under siege”.
It comes after a new poll of 1,000 Australian men found half of those working in white collar jobs felt they are discriminated against.
“It’s not just the product of quotas and affirmative action,” Mr Latham told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.
“The tendency started with so-called unconscious bias training where … men go into training to be told if you’re a white man in particular you’re a bad person and you’ve got white privilege.
“Now a lot of these men would have grown up in humble circumstances, they might have come from a public housing estate, worked their way up, worked hard at school, worked their way up the corporate ladder, to be told this all happened on the basis of privilege.
“So it’s a complete and utter nonsense.”
