Bloomberg reports that Noel Cintron, the president’s personal driver for more than 25 years, has filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization accusing his former boss of failing to compensate him for about 3,300 hours of overtime pay he’s worked over the past six years. (The number would likely be higher, but Citron can’t sue for prior overtime due to the statute of limitations.)
Cintron, who is a registered Republican, said in the complaint that he worked an average of 50 to 55 hours a week for Big Orange, but was never paid overtime for hours worked above 40 per week, as is legally required. According to the filing, Cintron was paid $62,700 in 2003; $68,000 in 2006; and $75,000 in 2010. Though if you thought Trump just got extra generous in 2010, you thought wrong!
That is just one example of how Trump has screwed anyone who has worked for him out of a paycheck.
But this jerk is now the President of the United States and he has shut down the U.S. Government and is requiring workers to come back and do their jobs, even though they won’t get a paycheck.
Could we not have seen this coming?
