This paper discusses the article, "Black Managers Complaint of Discrimination at WSSC," which asserts that the management at the WSSC promotes less qualified white men while overlooking them. The paper also discusses the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission's investigation of the case.
From the Paper:"The most recent complaint, filed by the eleven managers, is being investigated, and it is difficult to tell how long the investigation will last. Racial discrimination is difficult to prove in a system that still favors the white majority, and Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is probably aware of it. Instead of offering evidence to the contrary (such as comparing the numbers of high-level position held by equally qualified African American and Caucasian workers; comparing salaries; or producing examples of steps taken to impose consequences for discriminatory behavior) their only defense is that the workers' claims are unsubstantiated."
