    1. I agree with you John Olive, i was employed at 1333 Atlantic Ave. I was a 20 yr employee , due to a medical issue that was caused by the job . They disregard the doctor’s note told me I had to return to work. I didn’t go back I was sick. So now I’m out of a 20 yr job position. I’ve been gone for 3 yrs now. Who can you go to for help? No one stop the people at the top. They know they can get away with doing these type of things cause they’re in charge. There’s a special place in Hell for them. It’s sad.
