    I appreciate you are upset at how you are being treated at work. You may have legitimate grounds for being upset. Unfortunately, I cannot tell. Your post is far too dense and unreadable to discern exactly what your complaints are, much less whether any of them contravene a state or federal law. No disrespect: You may want to consider re-writing your post in a more concise and organized manner.

    From what I can tell, your manager picks on you and otherwise treats you harshly. In and of itself, such conduct by a supervisor is not illegal. Boorish maybe. But not unlawful.

    Again, I would respectfully recommend you re-write your post with an eye on communicating your grievances in a manner which the reader can readily discern the nature of your specific complaints. Perhaps there is more here. However, I do not think most, if any, readers will be able to figure it out based on the current post.

      In short, get to the point,
      and check your spelling!

      ~ I halve a spelling checker,
      It came with my pea see.
      It plainly marks four my revue
      Mistakes I dew knot sea.
      Eye strike a key and type a word
      And weight four it two say
      Weather eye am wrong oar write
      It shows me strait aweigh.
      As soon as a mist ache is maid
      It nose bee fore two long
      And eye can put the era rite
      Its rarely ever wrong.
      I've scent this massage threw it,
      And I'm shore your pleased too no
      Its letter prefect in every weigh;
      My checker tolled me sew.....

        You really do need to let us know what your specific questions are. Thanks.

        Based on what you posted, it seems nothing illegal is being done.
        Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

          If you feel that you're being discriminated against, please note that discrimination is only illegal if it's based specifically on things like your race, age, gender, religion and/or disability. If you're not being discriminated against for any of these reasons, then what you're experiencing is not illegal.
