Trump Sued for Unpaid Overtime
Trump is being sued by his longtime driver who claims he is owed $178k in back wages
Just because Trump supposedly has billions of dollars doesn’t mean he doesn’t pinch pennies when it comes to his staff. That penny pinching might cost him now as his longtime driver sues for unpaid overtime. Read more below from TMZ.
The man who drove Donald Trump everywhere before he was President says he was getting financially screwed for years ... and now he's looking for the big payback.
Noel Cintron says he was Trump's personal driver for more than 20 years until the Secret Service took that gig in 2016 -- and he says the last "meaningful" raise he got was more than a decade ago.
According to a lawsuit, Noel says he was making $62,700 per year and, in 2006, he got bumped up to $68,000. Great, right? Well, Noel says he got another raise in 2010, but this time Trump pulled a fast one on him.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, he says his salary jumped up to $75k annually -- but, at the same time, he was forced to surrender his health benefits, which he says saved the Trump Corporation nearly $18k per year.
Noel also claims to have worked about 3,300 hours of uncompensated overtime during his last 6 years on the job. Based on Noel's OT rate, he says he'd be owed about $178k ... just for the overtime.
He's suing the Trump Corporation for lost wages and damages.
