    Hmmm, that quote by her is kind of strange....

    Is he going to get the axe or have any true personal repercussions? It sounds like MSG is going to pay the claim and Isiah is getting out of paying anything. So basically MSG will be raising rates to cover the millions that they must pay her. (which she does deserve compensation) It just irks me to no end that nobody has lost their job yet and Washington doesn't even have to pay anything.

    Yeah, I thought so too.

    I had something happen to me when I was in my 20's while working for a businessman . . . . I wish I had known what I know now because I'd be rich.

    That makes two of us, Steph. I worked for an auto detailing business whose owner was a total pig---he'd make lewd comments about my appearance, stare at my chest, and point to his lap and mimic masturbation whenever I walked into the shop. But back when we were young, the concept of 'sexual harassment' hardly existed, or if it did, this small-town girl never heard of it. There was no recourse, no recognition that it was even an issue..........in those days we either put up with it, or we looked elsewhere for our daily bread.

    What a difference a generation makes, no?

    I worked for two companies sharing the same office and staff. One boss came up behind me and put his hands on my breasts while I was typing . . .I just froze.

    When I went to his partner, I was told "What do you expect, you are attractive".

    sigh . . . . I quit a week later. I am still mad at myself for staying a week.
