Montana Governor Schweitzer has ignored the cries of bigotry and corporate exploitation of workers as he lines his pockets with huge contributions from Companies that do business in Montana and treat employees like slaves and pay chump change

The Hospitality industry in montana and in Yellowstone Park is full of anti minority, anti semitism, anti older worker bigotry,

In A Bozeman Montana Wyndham Hotel a Black employee, a porter named Spirit was mocked by the manager who called her schizophrenic because she had complained about racist comments.
