Les Schwab Tire Centers Pays $2 Million to Settle Hiring Discrimination
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced today that it has resolved its gender-based hiring class lawsuit against Les Schwab Tire Centers of Washington, et al., and Les Schwab Tire Warehouse, Inc. for $2,000,000 and other corrective measures.
"The EEOC will continue to investigate employers and industries that have put women in certain types of jobs, and men in others. We hope Les Schwab becomes a model employer of women in the male-dominated tire industry."
The company is based in Bend, Oregon.
In related news I am currently preparing a lawsuit against both Ladies Home Journal and Cosmopolitan magazines for not featuring enough articles on power tools, work boots and trucks.
I am also going to do my part to fight this political correct nonsense and make sure that I don't allow any woman to change my tires at Les Schwab. Affirmative action employees aren't really the people I want touching the part of my vehicle that needs to contact the road when I'm going 65mph.
