I worked in a costume shop (more like a sweat shop) in Chicago, Il. I worked as a seamstress and in the area I worked, I had to deal with smells of iron cleaner, bleach, fabric dyes and aerosal paints and various types of glues with poor ventilation. But I also had to deal with comments from my boss about my breast size. On my first day, one of the first things he told me when showing me where I was to sew was "We're going to work your tits off." I should have walked out but I didn't, I needed the money. He also thought by being gay that it was alright to make comments like that. Well after two years, I finally had enough and walked out. I just could not take it anymore. It has been a little over a year and I find it difficult to find another job in my field let alone anywhere without having the increasing fear of having the same type of problem. Was there something I could have done?




Yes !!!! there were several options available. Please refer to page 2 of this website for messages posted to the following individuals: Irma, Tammy Weston, Springkid, Casper35, Sylvrsprng, and VL102371. You will find some helpful resources and telephone numbers to contact for more information. I urged you too contact EEOC immediately regarding the guidelines for filing. You might have some time available because you did not state when the exact date was.
