La’Ray Reed, from Wayne County, Michigan, said she thought about taking her own life after the harassment, she did not tell anyone about it. She was dismissed despite performing to a “satisfactory to exemplary manner,” according to the legal case she filed. The document states that soon after Reed started at McDonald’s in April 2015, a coworker asked her “if she was ‘a boy or girl,’ if she was ‘a top or bottom,’ and “what’s your role in the bedroom.’” She was abused and offended every day by co-workers. “At that moment, a coworker named Kelly reached between Ms Reed’s legs from behind and groped Ms Reed’s genitals. “Ms Reed was traumatised by the experience. “Speaking to campaign group Fight for $15, she said the management’s response to this was to cut her hours, they refused to comment offenses. The documents also details how Reed was “working the drive-through when her manager, Denise, said in a loud and demeaning voice and for others in the vicinity to hear, ‘Boy-slash-girl, step off drive-through!’ She was allegedly banished to back-of-house assignments after that, and was not seen at the drive-through againю Reed “suffered severe mental and emotional trauma and emotional distress, causing her to contemplate suicide and require treatment,” the document said.
