Fired for fighting discrimination.
I was just let go from my job at Landry’s Seafood House in Union Station which is located in St. Louis, MO.
I was let go without being given a reason but this happened suddenly after I placed a call to Human Resources about a server/bartender/trainer named Tina.
Tina, in my short three months there, has had the audacity to say several absolutely racist things about many different races and cultures in my presence.
1. A “joke” about people from the Philippines piling out of a car like clowns.
2. Standing between two Asian guests, she just started imitating them in a highly stereotypical and offensive manner for no reason.
3. Saying that she doesn’t wait on Muslim tables, it’s just a personal thing, they scare her.
4. Saying the words “NIGGER F*****” twice to me and another black employee.
Despite informing my managers, she received multiple warnings…even after this final incident.
I was told to leave if I was uncomfortable or call HR on my own.
I did call them the following morning.
I was then let go after hearing that Tina had been telling other staff that the management told her not to worry, that they were behind her 100%,
We need to let Landry’s know that discrimination in the workplace is unacceptable!
Please call the offending location at 1-314-231-4040 speak to a manager and let them know that Tina the bartender should no longer hold a working position there! Let them know that it’s 2015 and we don’t tolerate this anymore!
Also, feel free to call their corporate office at 1-800-552-6379 starting on Monday! Help me fight this injustice!
