3 Ex-Target Workers Sue over Racist “Multi-Cultural Tips” in Training Document
The suit, filed by the law offices of Ilija Cvetich in Sacramento on behalf of Robert Gonzalez, Bulmaro Fabian and Pedro Garcia-Ayala, says the company provided a booklet entitled “Organization Effectiveness, Employee and Labor Relations Multi-Cultural Tips” to warehouse managers that contained the food tip and more.

The lawsuit charges that the tips are indicative of the racist behavior exhibited by Target managers, who are almost all white.
