“I am not asking for anything extra. I am only asking for what is fair,” said plaintiff Henry Hernandez, 29, who worked in construction in Los Angeles before moving to Nashville some months ago. The worst part, Hernandez said, is that management “didn’t do anything to stop it.”" - From the Tennessean ( http://www.tennessean.com/article/20130215/NEWS/302150115 )
