An Instagram account has been created to call out a brewery in Vancouver. The account with 40 individual posts has been dedicated to telling the public about the “racist” and “sexist” work environment at Parallel 49. Ex-employees are calling what they experienced “inexcusable treatment.”\nA person who says they are a former employee of Parallel 49 Brewing Company anonymously launched an Instagram account for anyone who has worked for the company.\nIt was intended to be used as a platform to allow employees to share their stories of misconduct.\nAccording to the account, it was inspired by a fellow Instagram account that was also used to draw attention to the misconduct happening in Vancouver coffee shops and service industries.\nIn the very first post, the anonymous creator wrote that the brewery's “toxic work environment” included a general manager that gossiped and lied to staff.\nThe post continues by claiming the general manager and head chef were often the “root of the problem” but their actions were overlooked.\nEach post by the account was submitted anonymously through direct messaging. Screenshots were then posted and any names affiliated were removed or not shown.\nView this post on Instagram St. Augustine’s. There are two witnesses.
