Trump’s Longtime Driver Sues For ‘Thousands’ Of Hours Of Unpaid Overtime, Was Not Given ‘Meaningful Raise’ In 10 Years




President Trump‘s longtime driver Noel Cintron has filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization in the Manhattan Supreme Court claiming he was subjected to years of unpaid overtime work, according to multiple reports.

“In an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige President Donald Trump has, through the defendant entities, exploited and denied significant wages to his own longstanding personal driver,” the complaint reads.

Cintron claims that he was forced to work “thousands” of hours in overtime and that he was not given a “meaningful raise” in over 10 years.



The Hill added:

Cintron claims in the lawsuit, which also names Trump Tower Commercial LLC as a defendant, that he worked between 50 and 55 hours weekly beginning at 7 a.m. five days per week until the Secret Service took over Trump’s driving responsibilities, according to the Daily News.

The lawsuit also alleges that Cintron has not received a raise since 2010, when his salary was raised from $68,000 to $75,000. He claims that he was “induced to surrender his health benefits obtained through Trump, saving Trump approximately $17,866.08 per year in health insurance premiums” when he received the raise

Cintron is reportedly suing for just 3,300 overtime hours during six years due to the statute of limitations.
