That’s how they push us out. I had no projects assigned to me for 10mos after winning a Grand Prix the year before. All the projects went to white men with half of my experience. That’s when I knew they wanted me out but couldn’t fire me for fear of a lawsuit. Because they knew there was actively discriminatory behavior.
