A Queens woman has filed a $4 million discrimination suit, claiming that instead of teaching her how to use the equipment at Starrett City power plant, higher ups had her mopping chemicals in the men's locker room. What's worse, the walls were papered with pictures of naked ladies! Suzanne Langford signed on for an apprenticeship at the power plant thinking she'd get valuable job training, but soon after she started a member of the all-male staff told her "school is over." According to the Daily News, she's suing the union, Local 30, that allegedly threatened her with insubordination charges when she confronted it about the injustices, as well as a shop steward she says called another black worker a "gorilla." Langford was dismissed from the job in 2007.
