On Jan. 10, a female trucker for Strattanville, Pa.-based Neiswonger Construction filed a lawsuit against the company on claims of discrimination and retaliation based on gender. Filed in a Pennsylvania federal court, the complaint cites violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.

According to the complaint, the female driver worked for Neiswonger from March 2018 to April 2019 hauling debris and sandstone. During that time, the driver alleges she was subjected to a sexually hostile environment. Accusations include inappropriate comments, actions and treatment by co-workers and management.

Among the many claims include comments such as being called “mother” or “grandmother” on a daily basis. Other inappropriate comments alleged in the complaint include:

  • Told that she should be “home baking cookies” instead of driving a truck.
  • Called a “*****” by co-workers over the CB radio and in person.
  • Called “crazy.”
  • Getting hostile answers to her questions regarding the performance of certain job functions (“you never listen to me anyway,” insinuating that she was a stubborn female).
  • Being told by a male driver that she “doesn’t do anything right” and that she “didn’t need to be out here.”

How is any of that "gender discrimination"? Are women supposed to be above any sort of criticism?

Very true, as should every accusation in any case.
No in America you are "Guilty" until "proven" Innocent..

Example Why do ya think the Cops arrest ya first and you either sit in Jail or post a Cash Bail until your trial...because they've pre-assumed your guilt at point of arrest you get out after Trial or a good lawyer finds a "technicality" to force dismissal or sweet plea deal

Or the MeTv movement look at all these stars just a "mere" allegation is enough to ruin ya and be blacklisted for life just on the accusation alone..

the first part of your statement I agree with, it certainly has become guilty until proven innocent.

The second part about going to jail and posting bond have nothing to do with guilt abf they’ve been around since the founding. It’s to assure you are there for trial. If you charged a murderer or thief abs said “you might be innocent so we’re not going to arrest you just make sure you’re there for your trial” do you think they would come? Posting bond is usually for lesser crimes and it again attempts to assure your appearance.
