4th Year

Latino, Mexican

“I was a student advisor in the financial aid office. I loved my job. The other student workers were consistently saying racist comments about mexicans and black people. I told my supervisor about what was being said, but it made no difference. She told everyone to keep their offensive comments to the back room where no one at the front desk could hear. I ended up quitting because it made me uncomfortable. When I quit, I had a meeting with my supervisor’s boss. I told him my concerns and he said he can’t stop people from expressing their personal opinions. If your personal opinions make a work environment so uncomfortable that someone feels the need to quit, it’s a problem.”
