The Worst: This Boss Gets Rich Paying Less than Minimum Wage


Charles Curcio lives in a 6,000 square foot mansion. But the owner of the Brooklyn based bus company Outstanding Transportation is paying some of his employees as little as $3.90 an hour—under a Teamster contract!

Under their contract with Teamsters Local 854, bus aides make as little as $175 a week to monitor the safety of the physically and mentally disabled adults they transport every day to programs around the city.

The contract defines the work week as 40 hours in five days. The company claims that matrons work only five hours a day. The matrons, who are tracking their work hours, say they work much more. They’re organizing with TDU to fight for their rights.
