The nightlife industry is not an easy business, but sports bars have certain challenges that patrons may not fully understand.
In recent weeks, the #MeToo social media campaign has brought widespread attention to the sexual harassment that takes place at work. Now, a new hashtag, #MeTooCongress, launched by Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), is calling attention to a more specific workplace: the halls of Congress. Many on the Hill say an “old boys’ club” attitude permeates their workplace and the entity that handles harassment complaints, the Office of Compliance (OOC), is little-known by staffers and hindered by unique rules that weaken its effectiveness. New measures introduced by Speier and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) hope to address the problem by strengthening the OOC and extending the workplace protections that other federal workers receive. Kojo explores sexual harassment with Norton, the OOC Executive Director and a writer who used to cover Congress.
