    In effort to fight what we believe to be unfair sales and labor
    practices as well as stand up for Hispanic women's right to work in
    a company dominated by white males - Group 1 Automotive, Inc., we're
    organizing a boycott of the Group 1 Automotive, Inc. Dealerships.

    As we gear up for the launch, we are trying to collect as many horror
    stories as possible from consumers and employees (most have been
    ex-employees). If you have had a bad experience, like many others
    we've found, at any of the Group 1 Automotive dealerships listed
    below. Please submit your story to our website @

    Notices of unfair sales/labor practices are best forwarded to the
    appropriate governmental agency (or agencies) for their action. If the
    practices are found to be unlawful, and egregious enough, THEY'LL take
    care of the perpetrator(s). Otherwise, attempting to drum up support
    for your cause is likely only quixotic.

    For what it's worth, I support the notion that *anyone* (not just a
    particular ethnic group) should have the opportunity to *seek*
    employment at any establishment. And, the employer should not be
    forced to accept a less-qualified applicant, regardless of the
    applicant's ethnic heritage.

    I agree with your statement 100% but as I am sure that you are aware,
    that is not the situation in this case. I think that at times,
    employers use similar tactics:
