Can they just do that with me doing well in my work. I was 6% above everyone because I was there before everyone I work with. I am black and I am 62 years old. It makes me wonder. I have never played the race card in my life.
No there is no written contract.
Yes I feel they are being cheap. No there is no proof it is because of race. There is no proof it is because of age. I think it's because I was hired by J. Martin the owner and we were close. As long as he was alive no one could fire me but him. It seems there is nothing I can do but take the cut or walk.
I thank You for your help. I just want to sure of how I should handel this. I gave you the Highest rating.
