Marcus was the hardest worker at his local Baton Rouge retail store. He knew this because he was dedicated to climbing the ranks while finishing up his college degree. He put in more hours and better effort than many of the high school aged employees he was sharing the work floor with. He wanted to make sure that he had a reliable safety net just in case he was not able to secure a job right out of school that had to do with his major. However, one thing that had always rubbed him a bit wrong was that he was one of the only minorities in the workforce. Much to his dismay, his application for promotion to store manager never received a response. Then, he was even more shocked to find that one of the younger, less experienced, and Caucasian employees received the promotion he was vying for. At this point, he felt enough was enough, and he decided to contact a discrimination law attorney.
