A Black welder named Aaron Martin has filed a federal lawsuit against Bath Iron Works, a shipyard in Maine, alleging racial discrimination and harassment. Martin claims that he was subjected to racial slurs and derogatory epithets, including being referred to as a “chimp.” The lawsuit also states that managers failed to discipline employees who used such language, with one even suggesting that Martin should have physically assaulted his co-worker. Martin is seeking compensation for the discrimination he experienced and hopes to hold Bath Iron Works accountable for its conduct. The shipyard has not commented on the pending litigation.
