I’m still pissed 1 year and 1/2 later.
- I would still like to take a baseball bat to get the attention of (3) morons – 1 store manager who did nothing and 2 supervisors who repeatedly harassed my daughter verbally over a several month period while she worked at a local Wal-Mart store.
When I (the dad) finally talked my daughter into doing something about the harassment that had taken place at Wal-Mart it was too late to take legal action. We called a female attorney who had successfully prosecuted other sexual harassment cases last Fall. The office took a statement by my daughter but when they got back to her, they said they were not going to be able to do anything about it.
Today I talked with my daughter about work- she’s dreading going back into the work world. I can’t say that I don’t blame her.
After the harassment came to light two years ago, I offered her a job- she spent the better part of a year working for me- until her wrists started bothering her. I put her on temporary unemployment but that is going to run out in another couple of months so she’s needing to find another job.
My daughter has one of the sweetest personalities you could find- Unfortunately, guys have misread her “niceness” for something else and instead of telling these jerks where to go- she’s kept quiet which has only compounded the problem.
Before she worked @ Wal-Mart, she worked @ a local golf course where the same type of perverted harassment took place. The manager of the golf course was a whore who did nothing about it and my daughter didn’t realize she didn’t have to put up with it.
So, this Friday my daughter and I are going to talk about what’s next- I’m going to encourage her to talk with the local community college to take some career placement tests- but more importantly- I think she needs some practical coaching on how to handle sexual harassment the next time it happens-
