Philip Gordon recently appeared on Boston radio to discuss discrimination against female and Latino workers at the MBTA. Gordon Law Group has filed a complaint with the Commission Against Discrimination, claiming that there exists a systemic bias against women and Latinos employed by the MBTA, leading to the very real possibility of the case achieving class-action status in the near future. Here is an excerpt from the interview with Philip Gordon:
The system at the MBTA is broken. Instead of investigating and rooting out discrimination, the system operates to cover up discrimination and snuff out complaints. It’s stunning that the only time the MBTA and MassDOT will sit down at all to even consider fixing the system is when the federal government comes in and says we’ll pull your [funding]. Even then, it’s kicking and screaming, it’s woefully inadequate for their problems, and it still fails to take care of the past.
The interview was also featured as part of an article in The Boston Globe, which you can view by clicking here. If you are an employee that works for the MBTA or any other company, and feel you are being discriminated against, please contact us today..
