This is exactly what happened to 17 Haitian dishwashers working in restaurants in the SLS South Beach, in the 1700 block of Collins Avenue.

When they complained to human resources, all 17 Haitian dishwashers were fired.

They filed a lawsuit and they won!

The South Beach hotel has agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle a discrimination lawsuit filed on behalf of the 17 fired Haitian dishwashers, the federal authorities said Monday.

What do you think about that?
