President Trump’s former chauffeur is suing The Trump Organization for allegedly stiffing him on overtime pay, slashing his health-care benefits and refusing to give him a raise for over a decade.

“In an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige President Donald Trump has…exploited and denied significant wages to his own longstanding personal driver,” ex-chauffeur Noel Cintron says in a new Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

The article goes on to state the following:

Cintron was Trump’s personal driver for over 20 years until the Secret Service took over the role.

“During this time he was forced to work thousands of hours of overtime without compensation,” the suit says.

Trump didn’t give Cintron a raise in over 12 years — and even yanked health insurance worth nearly $18,000 a year, according to court papers.

Cintron received a $7,000 bump in 2010 that raised his salary to $75,000, but he doesn’t consider that a raise because it was the same year Trump took away his health care, the suit says.

BLOOMBERG further reported:

Cintron, 59, lives in Queens, New York, his lawyer, Larry Hutcher, said in a phone interview. The driver started working for the Trump Organization about 30 years ago, and worked his way up to chauffeuring the president-to-be.

Cintron said he was Trump’s personal driver until the Secret Service took over.

In addition to the unpaid overtime, Cintron claims the Trump Organization failed to provide annual wage notices as required by New York law. Cintron is seeking about $200,000 in damages, Hutcher said.

The case is Cintron v. Trump Organization LLC, Supreme Court, State of New York (Manhattan).

    Now he knows how retirees feel after getting a 2% raise in SS and then raising the cost on medicare coverage. I wish we had gotten a $7000.00 raise.
