    Trump's Personal Driver for 25 Years Sues for Unpaid Overtime

    Donald Trump’s personal driver for more than 25 years says the billionaire real estate developer didn’t pay him overtime and raised his salary 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 of overtime that he says he worked in the past six years. He’s not allowed to sue for overtime prior to that due to the statute of limitations.
    “In an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige,” Trump and his businesses exploited the driver, Cintron says in the complaint.

    Cut his health benefits?

    This guy isn't going to want to put in the work in the offseason. We don't want him.

    We don't need no stinkin punters. One is all we need. Besides, it looks like he needs time with Savage before he sees the field. :emoji_upside_down::emoji_upside_down:

    This thread was originally in Swamp Gas, in case you have not figured that out already.

    Yeah, I had multiple windows open so I take full blame on that one. Love the recruiting jokes.

    May sound like a lot but the cost of living in NYC, is a little more (actually a lot more) than Florida or North or South Carolina. Also, not beyond the realm of possibility that the guy is on call 24/7, not quite the same as working 9-5 five days a week.

    True but ...... didn’t the guy accept the job at the agreed upon salary? Is he attempting to assert he was an indentured servant?

    When do people accept responsibility for the decisions they make and agreements into which they enter?

    The Donald has the gift of conning people. If he could con people into spending money to take classes in a fake university; con creditors into loaning him or his organization money after multiple bankruptcies; similarly con suppliers, contractors and employees and end up paying them pennies on the dollar, is it all surprising that he could con a driver into working for him for 25 years without overtime.

    PolitiFact uncovered two more bankruptcies filed after 1992, totaling six. Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts filed for bankruptcy again in 2004, after accruing about $1.8 billion in debt. Trump Entertainment Resorts also declared bankruptcy in 2009, after being hit hard during the 2008 recession.
