Nearly half of black workers say they have experienced workplace discrimination, and nearly a quarter of women employees say they have been sexually harassed on the job, according to a new AFL-CIO study, Workers' Rights in America. A third to half of employees give employers mediocre or failing grades on protecting workers.
The study also says 56 percent of the 1,792 employees surveyed believe new laws are needed to hold corporations responsible for the way workers are treated. That's to be expected from a labor-backed survey. The surprise? That number has jumped from 44 percent only five years ago.
