According to the Associated Press, a San Jose Panda Express is in a world of trouble after allegedly discriminating against Latino employees. "Federal officials are suing a San Jose Panda Express, accusing the restaurant of making Latino workers clean toilets and perform other menial work while Asian employees stood around and watched." The suit also claims that the manager "disciplined Latino employees more harshly and more frequently than their Asian counterparts."
The Panda Express in question is located on El Paseo de Saratoga.
Former employee Aremy Lomely, reports the Chronicle, claims that the general manager separated Latino workers from Asian Americans.
"I felt so ashamed when the Asian workers watched me obediently run from the bathrooms to the tables to the counters, cleaning when they did not have to," Lomely said.
