Damning of the company and its culture that it took his face and name appearing on the front page of a newspaper to get to this point of seeing an actual decisive movement over the matter.
It's the old Conspiracy of Silence and the Good Old Boys protecting each other.
The only way to counter either of those things is to build up information and dirt on them and then ram that info and dirt down their throats via a media attack or a massive legal attack, preferably one that blindsides them.
Reminds me of a place I worked at where nepotism, favoritism and abuse of authority was the name of the day until the jerk (I have other words I can use but I'll be mindful of forum rules
) that ran the shift began to run afoul of me. Planted my feet, stood my ground, racked up information, went to the higher ups in the company and made it clear to them that the Good Old Boy system isn't going to work and I will not stop. Also the law was on my side too.
