Racism alleged in suit against Aramark

The Associated Press, CARSON CITY, NV, March 22 - Aramark Uniform Services and seven employees who work at or oversee its Sparks center have been named in a civil rights lawsuit that alleges race and age discrimination and harassment targeting black and Hispanic workers.

Also named in the lawsuit alleging numerous violations of federal civil rights laws was the uniform rental company's parent, Philadelphia-based Aramark Corporation.

The action was filed by one current and three former employees of the Sparks center. They include a former district manager, Mike Baker, a white who alleged he complained about racial slurs by others but corporate executives ignored him. Baker was fired last April.

Baker was joined by Willie Andrews, a black who was fired last June from Aramark's Sparks center; Rich Eley, a black-Hispanic who left his Sparks job last April; and Troy Vargas, a Hispanic still at the Sparks center.
