    Trumpís Personal Driver for 25 Years Sues for Unpaid Overtime

    Trumpís Personal Driver for 25 Years Sues for Unpaid Overtime



    7/9/18
    Donald Trumpís personal driver for more than 25 years says the billionaire real estate developer didnít pay him overtime and raised his salary only twice in 15 years, clawing back the second raise by cutting off his health benefits. Noel Cintron, who is listed in public records as a registered Republican, sued the Trump Organization for about 3,300 hours of overtime that he says he worked in the past six years. Heís not allowed to sue for overtime prior to that due to the statute of limitations. ďIn an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige,Ē Trump and his businesses exploited the driver, Cintron says in the complaint. The driverís allegations echo those of other Trump employees or contractors who have sued the president or his businesses over the years claiming he has underpaid them or failed to honor promises to compensate them for their work. They have included mortgage brokers, landscapers and electricians who say they were stiffed on commissions or fees. Last year, one of Trumpís luxury golf resorts in Florida was ordered by an appeals court to pay more than $32,000 to a supply company that claimed it wasnít paid for paint that was used to spruce up the property.

    Cintron says he was required to be on duty for Trump starting at 7 a.m. each day until whenever Trump, his family or business associates no longer required his services. He worked as long as 55 hours per week, but was paid a fixed salary of $62,700 in 2003, $68,000 in 2006, and $75,000 in 2010, according to the complaint. The wage bump in 2010 came with a catch, Cintron said. He was induced to surrender his health insurance, saving Trump approximately $17,866 per year in premiums, according to the lawsuit. Cintron, 59, lives in Queens, New York, his lawyer, Larry Hutcher, said in a phone interview. The driver started working for the Trump Organization about 30 years ago, and worked his way up to chauffeuring the president-to-be. He declined to comment to reporters outside his home. Cintron said he was Trumpís personal driver until the Secret Service took over. In addition to the unpaid overtime, Cintron claims the Trump Organization failed to provide annual wage notices as required by New York law. Cintron is seeking about $200,000 in damages, Hutcher said. The case is Cintron v. Trump Organization LLC, Supreme Court, State of New York (Manhattan).
    Yet another contractor sues Donald Trump. I'm shocked lol. Truly, one of the sleaziest businessmen to ever prey on America.

    Why would you continue working for someone that isn't paying you?

    Irrelevant.

    If Trump broke the law, he will have to pay the guy.
    If not, then the guy will not get paid.

    I think if Trump can separate young children from parents for months, forget who their parents are, all without due process, I think Trump can handle due process in a court of law regarding unpaid wages.

    Don't ya think?
