Much was promised, but little came through. As a result, 18 migrant farm workers have filed a wage dispute lawsuit against both a strawberry farm and its labor recruiters for having lured them out of Texas and into North Carolina with undelivered promises.

Texas bus company sued for discrimination against U.S. citizens

A Houston bus company is facing a lawsuit for its hiring practices. Although many discrimination suits are the result of employers excluding individuals on the basis of their natural origin being outside of the country, the Texas company has allegedly been failing to consider employing qualified United States citizens while preferring to instead hire foreign workers on H-2B temporary worker visas. The suit claims that the company disregarded applications from lawful permanent residents and qualified citizens to fill open positions.

The case is, however, somewhat different from other such cases in view of the fact that the sexually offensive remarks came from another woman.
