WTH Files: Alexander McQueen Store Slapped With Discrimination Lawsuit

Yet another story about discrimination at a high-end store:

[Moselle Blanco, a 43-year-old Hispanic woman and former saleswoman from the West 14th Street boutique in NYC's trendy Meatpacking District, is now slapping the high-end British fashion house with a racial discrimination lawsuit.

The Manhattan civil suit, which was filed last Wednesday, contests that Blanco's boss, Max Cantey, not only called her names but also subjected her “to a persistent barrage of offensive comments based on her race and national origin.”

In one instance, Blanco recalled Cantey telling her that “she had greasy hands like a Mexican and that he did not want any product to ‘get messy.’” She also said she was falsely accused of stealing and using cocaine at work.]source: huffingtonpost.com
