BP Gulf Oil Disaster—NAACP Investigation DAY VIII—Gulfport, MS

Kathy Egland, NAACP Board Member and Former Branch President for Gulfport, introduced me to a young man who had gotten involved with the clean-up efforts working on one of the crews.  He shared his experiences with starting off each morning with briefings that were primarily focused on warning workers not to speak to the media/press.  One large challenge he faced was not getting his correct pay and he wasn’t alone.  For him to get this proper compensation, as per his work agreement, he had to engage in a lot of back and forth with the company before he was finally paid, much to his frustration. In the end, he decided not to continue working under these circumstances, after his initial negative experiences in the few days he was on the crew.
