Join us as Sheila White returns to talk about life after blowing the whistle on Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
Sheila wrote a book about the ten year battle she waged with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Company titled "Fighting the Giant"
" On June 22, 2006 the United States Supreme Court made a landmark decision in Sheila White's favor, ruling 9-to-0 in the case she brought against the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company. She worked in the Tennessee rail yards, one woman alongside many men. Her book describes how she learned to stand up for herself and how she helped the legal system defend her from the discrimination, retaliation, and humiliation she experienced. Taking charge in such a situation is not an easy nor a fast process; it takes a lot of patience, but it can be done. After reading this book you will understand how she defended herself, and in the process, helped open the door for all working women."
