Would you Film a Porno With Your Boss?


Just wondering… because a group of female and teenage employees at a Ruby Tuesdays were confronted with the same proposition.

This family restaurant in Stroudsburg, PA settled a $225,000 sexual harassment lawsuit with six plaintaffs who alleged that General Manager, Christopher Mendoza, made inappropriate comments to them during their employment.

Such hits include:

“…Your breasts look nice today…”

“She must be really horny. My wife was always horny.” (In response to a pregnant customer)

“All she needs is a good **** up her ****, and I’d be good for that.”  — Christopher Mendoza

The last comment referred to waitress, Michelle Gydosh, who joined the lawsuit after enduring ongoing harassment from Mendoza. Mendoza told Gydosh that he wanted to make a sex(y) movie with her, telling her that he would “throw her over the counter and **** her…” if he wasn’t married.

Whenever I hear about cases like this, I’m more so focused on the money than on the actual welfare of the victim. Why? Because all of Mendoza’s harassments were verbal. It didn’t mean he should make remarks like that to his employees; but the fact that he just said it has made these ladies thousands of dollars richer, even at the expense of their dignity and comfort.

That’s life, ladies.

Here’s what each plaintiff raked in:

Nicole Wallace: $5,000

Melissa Johnson: $32,000

Rosemary Singer: $57,000

Dawn Kovacs: $60,000

And remember our Jenna Jameson in the making, Michelle Gydosh? She received $101,000 from Ruby Tuesday.

So, these women actually earned more by reporting Mendoza’s behavior than they would if someone like Gydosh actually charged him for sex. However, complaints about Mendoza date back to August 2006, and Ruby Tuesday settled last week.

Hm… would that mean they made less over time or is it about the same rate? Ugh. I was always terrible at math, yet fascinated with problems such as this one. Quite possibly, because of this ordeal, Gydosh, Kovacs, and Singer would have made more money than they could earn in a year of working at Ruby Tuesday.

That’s what I call justice!
