Two black employees working in the Nashville plant of Michigan-based USF Holland recently won $350,000 each in a race-discrimination lawsuit.

The employees endured harassment for several years, including being referred to as “boy,” finding nooses hung in the docking areas and having their equipment sabotaged.
