It's like a sweat mill . There are some folks that work there that is not hispanic.
The mill should still be safe no matter who he works.

The mad employee is Daniel the former electrician! Nance should be sued just like Mohawk was for hiring illegals and keeping wages down. All that works there are dopers and jailbirds! The Nances should be ashamed. And no Daniel, you won't win a stupid lawsuit based on discrimination! They like Hispanics at Nance! Duh!

Good for Daniel. The fact is there is truth in his story and he contacted the right people to go in there and investigate.

What is the "truth" in his story? And are you now going to complain to yourself about your negative post?

Really? You are all over my post. Didn't know my comments were of importance to you. Should I be feeling special? Do you read the initial post before you make a comment? Or the paper? If Daniel did not have a legitimate complaint, Nance would not have been cited and made to make appropriate corrections. Is that plain enough for you.

well my problem with this whole thing is daniel got mad because he got fired for not being on his job. That's when he started telling lies and calling immigrations on nance. Not before he got fired! Only after! And as far is him suing nance because of discriminatio, that won't fly!! Look how many Hispanics work there!!!! Duh!

This is about nance being cited for placing their employees in a harmful work environment not about illegals working there. They were cited by OSHA. Who cares if it took Daniel(and I do not know him) getting mad before he turned them in. I don't agree with the way he did it either but the fact remains it was legit or they would not have been cited for it.

How many handles do you use here? Do your kids that "graduated with honors" work at Nance? Are they being tracked online by the Gordon County Board of Education?

I seem to have hit a nerve with this person. You add nothing to discussion trying to run me down. Try to stay on topic. Your opinion other than the topic at hand is no concern to me. I'm not defending Daniel. I am only stating that if OSHA had not cited nance for his claim then we all may say it was nonsense, but they did.
