There was an employee of the said company that went to Wall Street Journal to help spread her experience with Schanzer; according to her- she was asked by the CEO what color her underwear is. For those complainants to keep their mouth shut, Cedar Realty has made a decision to pay them for the damages Schanzer has made.
