85 cents an hour

Rich family allegedly paid maid 85 cents an hour

17 hrs ago

A lot of us are working longer hours for less money these days, but hopefully nothing like this: A New York woman is facing criminal charges for allegedly forcing an undocumented worker into "forced labor," making her work 17-hour days, seven days a week - cooking, cleaning and caring for the employer's five children. Investigators say she was paid just $29,000 over five and a half years -- that's 85 cents an hour, according to The Smoking Gun. The kicker? That "house" the servant cleaned, and in which she was forced to sleep in a closet, was a 34-room, 30,000-square-foot, $30 million mansion on 12 acres, with "a helicopter pad, an indoor swimming pool, 15 fireplaces" and an array of other features, reports The Smoking Gun. Sheesh

That's terrible.

I'm glad it was discovered.
