Amanda Nichols, 17, had the fast-food job-from-hell at a Steak 'n' Shake in suburban St. Louis:
- When she fell out of favor with her boss, the boss made her clean floorboards with a toothbrush, she says.
- When she tried to take a break, an argument erupted with her boss, whereafter she was referred to as "Whore, whore! Skank, skank!"
- When an employee cut himself, coworkers discovered the first-aid kit contained only aspirin, so they just ran the wound under water.
- When she left one night, another coworker tried to rape her in the parking lot, unzipping his pants, removing her apron and demanding sex.
All this was worth $180,000 for Amanda, the EEOC has decided in her sexual-harassment suit. AP story.
