Here’s a particularly scary piece of news:

The EEOC has sued a Sikesville, Missouri construction company for racial harassment. Allegedly, two supervisors–brothers of the owner–not only made racially charged statements to three of their African-American employees but displayed a noose (and apparently “used” it in an unspecified manner). Then, when the company owner was told about his brothers’ allegedly behavior, he no longer sent to the complainants out for jobs.

Harassment, retaliation, and threats of lynching. Who says a builder can’t be busy in this economy?
