Many workers have because of harassment and bullying have been forced out on disability and workers comp by the managers supported by top city officials. They also talked about the removal of San Francisco Department of Public Health Director Barbara Garcia who was covering up the corruption, racism and rampant bullying as well as the privatization of public services. She has also conspired with the developer Lennar and politicians to cover up the radioactive contamination and illnesses caused at the Hunters Point shipyard and allowed her “Environmental Engineer” Amy Brownell to tell city workers and the community that the Hunters Point shipyard was safe and people were only getting sick from “stress”.

Micki Callahan, who is the Director Of Human Services has been personally involved in violating the rights of public workers and covering up the corruption and criminal activity of top city management. Also, according to workers, she is still refusing to provide complete statistics on the patterns of racism and discrimination in the City and County of San Francisco.

Alongside Barbara Garcia, Human Resources director Micki Callahan has been personally involved in orchestrating the racist attacks, firing whistleblowers and covering up the corruption in the city. The city has paid tens of millions of dollars in compensation to workers who have been bullied and illegally discharged by Callahan and the city because of being whistleblowers and the executives and managers who took these illegal actions are still on the job because of Callahan and the City officials.
