  1. I’m going through the same exact thing at the moment trying to prove my innocence being falsely accused by my 25-year employer who I sue for wrongful termination and now put me in jail for fraud for Workers Comp fraud for saying I exaggerated my pain I believe this is racially motivated and retaliation and I’d like to tell my story to the public

    1. I work with injured workers and this is NOT racially motivated. It happens all the time to workers of all colours and cultures. This racial blame has to stop.
