Employees who work for Sean Benton, the Louisiana City of Monroe Water Distribution Superintendent, have attended the suspension hearing of a coworker in a show of support for their colleague and to speak out against the hostile work environment that their despised boss has created and maintained.
Employees recorded a four hour meeting that took place late last year where Benton used hundreds of obscenities and ordered one of the supervisors to physically attack an equipment operator. Benton told the foreman to “yank his a– in that hole and whip the s–t out of him.”
The mayor of Monroe, Jamie Mayo, has said that abusive language would not be tolerated. On the other hand, Mayo seems to be supporting Benton so far. The mayor said that all of the reports he has heard about Benton have been positive and that there haven’t been any problems with him.
