Joined by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Duncan’s family has repeatedly criticized the hospital, saying he was given substandard care because he was not a white American. They point out that Duncan was the only person treated for Ebola in the U.S. who wasn’t taken to Nebraska Medical Center, which has a high-tech quarantine unit, or given experimental drugs that may help combat the virus. Duncan’s nephew has told reporters that said his uncle’s care was “either incompetence or negligence,” and he finds it “conspicuous” that all the white Ebola patients in the U.S. have survived while “the one black man died.”
Sexual harassment on the job, while illegal, is still very common, particularly for women. There were 7,256 EEOC charges in 2013, and there were over 11,000 in 2011 when EEOC charges were combined with those made at state and local Fair Employment Practices agencies.
These figures undercount the actual problem given that many women don’t report harassment — and it’s no wonder why, given how often it appears that employers fire them when they speak up. It’s also expensive to bring a lawsuit. But in a recent survey, one in five women said they’d been sexually harassed by a superior and one in four said they’d been harassed by a coworker. One in three teenagers say they are harassed at work. In some industries, women practically can’t escape it: nearly 80 percent of women in the restaurant industry say they are harassed by customers or by coworkers, while two-thirds have been harassed by managers, many of them dealing with it on a weekly basis.
