    B&H workers complaining about discrimination

    B&H workers aren't happy with their working conditions; those working at the Manhattan warehouse are complaining about ethnic and gender discrimination (unequal pay for same work, unequal promotion opportunities etc.), about too high time pressure to fetch and deliver products and about the lack of moving gear to displace heavy loads..

    I thought that as customers it is interesting to know about it.

    Re: B&H workers complaining about discrimination

    Definitely not a new issue btw for B&H. It's a very "interesting" cultural phenomena there between the different groups and a certain upstairs/downstairs aspect to the retail store which is somewhat the tip of the B&H commercial iceberg. The warehouse locations I've seen such as the Brooklyn Navy Yard are quite huge.
