$500,000 for Discriminating against American Workers – Here in America

Today the EEOC announced a settlement with an agricultural farm in Georgia arising from the farm’s discriminatory treatment of its American seasonal workers.  The farm was accused of unlawfully engaging in a pattern or practice of discrimination against these workers by firing virtually all American workers while retaining workers from Mexico. The farm was also accused of providing lesser job opportunities to American workers by giving them assignments which resulted in lower pay than their Mexican co-workers.  The farm’s actions, which were alleged to be based on the national origin of the American workers, violate Title VII.  http://eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/12-13-12.cfm.
