    New York woman fired after donating kidney to help boss

    Deborah Stevens said her former employer, Atlantic Automotive Group, discriminated against her over disabilities brought about by complications from the surgery, and she plans to sue the company for lost earnings and damages.

    The company, which runs car dealerships on Long Island, said Stevens's complaint is groundless.

    "My gal is just a good-natured woman who's trying to save a life and as soon as she did it, everything changed," said Stevens' attorney Lenard Leeds on Tuesday.

    "When she wanted to take time off, she was scolded, she was yelled at," he said. "Instead of being sympathetic, they were very hostile towards her."


    Once you've given your bosses everything they needed from you, they don't need you anymore, so why should they care about you? Oh you thought they had feelings? That's adorable.

    I just read that article on the music industry confession. I'm a sceptic to believe it's true because it's just some anonymous source with no proof, but I don't doubt the plausibility of the story the least beat, given how advertising works and how unscrupulous people will be for the sake of a profit. I also loathe private prisons so maybe I'm biased because of that, but still, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be true.

    Considering how crime peaked in the US in the late 80's/early 90's and has been falling ever since, if the conspiracy was intended to get more people to commit crimes it was miserable failure.

    The private prison industry stays profitable by pushing for ever longer sentences for the declining number of people convicted for criminal offenses.
