Four women have filed complaints with the state Department of Workforce Development (DWD), claiming the way Madison Metro hires and promotes employees is unfair to minorities. Along with race issues, the complainants argued the system favors friends and family of management and tolerates people with poor attendance, a history of physically fighting on the job, and drug test failures on their records. “We're not asking you to hire us just because we're black. I'm asking you to hire us because we earned it, we deserved it, and we're qualified,” Soncerethia Clair-Thomas said.
