Donald Trump’s former driver sues over unpaid wages

President Trump stiffed longtime personal driver on thousand of hours of overtime lawsuit alleges

President Trump stiffed longtime personal driver on thousand of hours of overtime lawsuit alleges

The suit, filed by Noel Cintron in Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday, seeks $178,200 for overtime pay and $5,000 in penalties in accordance with New York's labor laws.

"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 said.

A NY man who said he was Donald Trump's personal driver for more than 20 years sued the US president's company on Monday, claiming he was not paid for thousands of hours of overtime. His last documented raise was in 2010 when his salary was bumped up from $68,000 to $75,000.

The Trump Organization said Cintron was paid fairly.

Donald Trump's personal driver Noel Cintron filed a lawsuit last week over 3,300 hours of overtime in the past six years that he claims Trump never paid him for.

Noel Cintron, who served as the NY businessman's driver until Trump received Secret Service protection in 2016, is demanding the recovery of compensation from his time working for the Trump Organization in a lawsuit filed Monday with the Supreme Court of NY.


'They said, 'If you go on your wife's health insurance benefits, ' " then the Trump Organization would give Cintron a $7,000 raise, Hutcher said. These pay raises were the only two that Cintron ever received.

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 almost $18k per year.

However, Cintron isn't the first of Trump's employees to sue him over the years, claiming that he failed to pay them.

The allegations mirror numerous other claims made by contractors and workers for Trump's companies, who have frequently gone to court over claims of unpaid wages or fees.

A representative didn't answer a question about whether Cintron was still employed there; his suit says he's now a security staffer.

This is just yet another lawsuit for Trump to deal with.
