An employee of Pilgrim's Pride Corp. claims that he was treated unfairly because of his race and has taken his complaints to court. The plaintiff was hired to work as a shop attendant at a Texas location in 2009. Initially, the man did not suffer any workplace discrimination, but he claims that over the last few years the situation has dramatically changed.
The plaintiff -- who happens to be black -- noticed that his work conditions were becoming less favorable. He allegedly was subjected to inappropriate comments about his race. Additionally, he noticed that his hours had decreased, and he was not being paid equally to his co-workers in the same positions. All of these changes seemed to happen without explanation.
