Boeing Lawsuit

Ruby deLuna of member station KUOW in Seattle reports that 41 workers have filed a class-action lawsuit against the Boeing Company. Most of the complainants are African-Americans, claiming that they worked for years without advancing in the company, were harassed, and were wrongly fired. They're seeking 82 million dollars in damages. While Boeing is denying the charges, the class-action group is receiving calls daily from other current and former employees who want to join the lawsuit.
