Sheet Metal Worker by Katie Murray

Leave a comment

Murray shares her experiences as a black women growing up and surviving on her own in the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s. Only on rainy days was she allowed to go to school, as a young girl she worked on a farm from early morning till dinner late at night. Once she got pregnant she was forced to support herself. In the workplace she faced much racial discrimination, sexual harrassment from her white male coworkers, and basically thought lesser of because of her skin color by the white people working around her. Even when her husband abused her and she came in to the United Way with a broken jaw and hand with no place to stay, they sluffed her off and claimed her case was no emergency.

We’ve come such a long way since the 60’s and 70’s getting away from racial discrimination and sexual discrimination. It’s so sad to think that women, black and white alike were ostracized, harrassed, and treated unfairly in the workplace like that. Katie Murray could perform her job just as well as any of the white women or men, but she was forced to go above and beyond to prove herself. Unfortunately discrimination against sex and race is still somewhat present today, thank goodness we have moved forward somewhat to equality.
