A jury has awarded five Black Mississippi strippers over $3 million after a federal judge determined they worked under worse conditions than their white co-workers.
The May 15 decision, which was reported by the Associated Press, requires that $3.3 million be split among the Black workers of Danny’s Downtown Cabaret. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which filed the suit on behalf of the workers, stated the verdict included $1.5 million in punitive damages, $1.68 million in compensatory damages, and $130,550 in back pay. https://wordpress.com/block-editor/post/krebtalk.blog/1522
Even Black strippers have to deal with discrimination. SMDH.
