Hiring blacks has always been a lose-lose situation for employers.
If things go well, they’re still not going to go quite as well as if you’d just hired a human instead.
And if things go wrong, well…
Police have identified the suspect and the victim in the deadly temp agency shooting in Glendale Monday.
The victim died from his injuries at the hospital. Police identified him Tuesday as 50-year-old Scott Isaacson. Police say he was shot multiple times.
The shooter, who was later shot in an officer-involved shooting with Glendale PD near 43rd Avenue and McDowell Road Monday afternoon was identified as 40-year-old Julius Grant.
Police responded to Integrity Staffing Solutions located near Camelback Road and 95th Avenue around 9:30 a.m. Monday.
Police say Grant, a former employee of Integrity Staffing Solutions, was upset over a pay issue. Grant went to the location and after pacing around outside, he entered an office where Isaacson was meeting with two other employees.
Grant broke up the meeting. Court documents say Grant indicated to investigators that Isaacson’s body language suggested that nothing was going to be done about the pay situation and he shot him three times.
Employees reported barricading themselves in their offices.
One woman, who is a recruiter and payroll specialist for the business, said Grant put the gun against her forehead and chest multiple times.
“We love you. Why don’t you guys want to pay us,” he allegedly said as he held the gun to her.
Grant then walked out of the business and fled the scene.
Police don’t think Isaacson oversaw Grant or was responsible for his pay issue.
