Storyline

Naomi's new store manager Archie Woods has offered her the newly opened position of assistant manager. She's flattered to have been selected but is not flattered one bit when Mr. Woods makes it clear,in words and actions,that she has to be "very friendly" to him to secure the promotion. Naomi realizes this is why the the last female assistant manager was let go. He tells her to go home and think it over. She lets it be known to Mama & Iola what he's done. After giving her a talk about how what he's done is sexual harrassment,she's still too upset to do anything. Mama comes up with a plan to give Archie Woods a taste of his own medicine and get positive proof of his sleazy doings. (You have to see this plan in action! LOL! ) Written by happipuppi13

It's called sexual harassment, Naomi!
4 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mama's Family did take on some serious issues like homelessness, pornography, ageism, sexism, and sexual harassment in this episode. Naomi gets a new boss at Food Circus, the local supermarket, where she has worked her bones from bagger to checker to the express lane. Finally, she could get a management position if her sleazy boss played well by Jeff Silverman puts the moves on her. After the incident in his office, she is terrified to go back to work and feels ashamed. When she finally confides in Thelma and Iola of all people about how her new boss has told her to put up or get out like a previous female employee. Mama has plans of her own. Thelma and Iola watched a Donahue episode where they discussed the matter of sexual harassment. The episode is quite tame by today's standards.
