In a shocking revelation, a new lawsuit has brought to light the deeply troubling experiences of four black employees at TNT Crane & Rigging, one of the largest crane providers in the US. Here’s the full story.
The suit, filed by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleges a pattern of racial discrimination and harassment, creating a hostile work environment that went unchecked by the company.
The lawsuit accuses TNT Crane & Rigging of allowing racial slurs and offensive language to invade the workplace, with some employees reportedly enduring derogatory remarks from both colleagues and managers.
The Racist Slurs
In one instance, a crane operator was subjected to a racial slur by his field manager when he raised a concern.
The manager said, “’N***** if you are going to b**** about it, you can turn that truck around and take your a** home.’”
White Colleagues Were Calling Them in Derogatory Manner
Similarly, others shared their experiences of being subjected to racial slurs, with one even overhearing colleagues referring to him in a derogatory manner.
The Management Provided No Support
Their attempts to seek resolution through management were met with ineffective responses, leaving them feeling unsupported.
Newer Employees Didn’t Have It Easy
Even newer employees were not spared from the discriminatory culture at TNT Crane & Rigging.
One employee, who joined the company as a rigger in 2019, was met with derogatory comments from a white colleague, perpetuating harmful stereotypes about black individuals.
Black People Are Lazy
The white worker said, “A lot of black people are lazy. You’re different, you’re not like other n******. You work though; that’s what I like about you.”
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has unequivocally stated that TNT Crane & Rigging allowed a work environment to persist, filled with racist comments and imagery.
“Typical Leftist Tactic”
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One user wrote, “Typical Leftist tactics try to create racial strife when nothing is there.”
They Need a Thick Skin
Another user added, “Everyone in the workplace needs a thick skin. Black or white. Otherwise, you will constantly be looking for ways to be offended and complain about it.”
A third user commented, “And they say that this is not a “racist country”.”
