Take a stand against bullying!
Some people just never grow up and I have someone very near and dear to me who was working with some of those so called "adults". Just because they have their own place, and their own car, and their own job, doesn't mean they are adults especially when they treat others irresponsibly because they are not of the same ethnic background that they are! Last I knew we were all created by the same wonderful God. These people thought it was all right to tell racist jokes, call my relative several ugly racial slurs throughout the day every day and cook up on him to get him fired. One of the ones who was the ring leader was the boss's son.
Now we are in a quandary. He has a family to support. He needs employment and the agency that got him this job is looking for another for him and he should be working shortly, but every dime of every pay check was needed.
1. Does he fight back? I have encouraged him to because if no one before us had ever stood for justice women would not vote today. Blacks would still not be allowed to eat with us and so many more inequalities... I am married to a black man, which even during my life time was outlawed in certain states. We have come a long way, but the journey is just beginning! Of course it is up to him.
2. Where should he start? I have looked up some lawyers who fight against unjust work practices for free forwarding the links to him, and this employer should really be more careful. They work on government contracts. I am sure the government would not sanction this type of behavior!
Join us at Amanda's for two questions Thursday. I am so grateful that I work with grown ups! Thank you for your visit. Take care and God bless!
