Rescar, Inc., in Channelview needs to be further investgated. Rescar needs to be held accountable for the rail worker that was crushed to death. Workers do not receive their entitled breaks. They are forced to work long hours 7 days a week. Funny how after their coworker was crushed by the railcar, they were given the weekend off. Managers and lead man give work instruction in Spanish, leaving the English speaking workers feeling prejudice against. Management frowns upon their employees that do not speak Spanish. Several fights have broken out among workers in the shops and no reprimanding is done. Managers openly watch porn in their offices during work hours instead of properly enforcing safety. Managers coming back from long lunch hours under the influence of drugs, and with the smell of alcohol on their breathes. The work place at this company is stressful. Managers speak unprofessionally to their co workers. Managers not managing and leadsman are not leading this company to success. I'm surprised more deaths haven’t occurred at this death trap.
