Discrimination is "Krystal" Clear at Krystal Restaurant

BLACK RESTAURANT WORKERS SUE OVER STRIP SEARCH: Managers of Ga. venue accused of unfairly targeting black employees over missing money.

*Four black former employees of a north Georgia restaurant say they were unfairly strip searched by white managers and that three of them were fired after they complained, reports Fox News.

The federal agency's complaint says managers searched the four employees after $100 disappeared from a white employee's cash register at the Krystal restaurant in Winder in June 2005.

Herbert Hunter, Daphne Hill and Shannon Jackson say they were fired after they complained that only black employees were strip searched. Quinthony Brown did not return to work after he was searched.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a lawsuit on their behalf, seeking back wages plus interest.

"We don't want any other employee subjected to this kind of treatment," Vincent Hill, the EEOC attorney handling the case, told the Athens Banner-Herald.

The employees complained to the EEOC two months after the alleged incident, and the agency has been working to negotiate a settlement with New Capital Dimensions, the Milledgeville-based company that formerly owned the Winder franchise of the Krystal chain that operates across the South.

Please know...threats of hell and bible scriptures are futile-look at your church if you don't believe me! Get your 'body of christ' in order and then come talk to me.

Yours in Reason, Bria :)
