Where's the contract? She waited 8 years?

Usually when you're salary you don't get paid for overtime. That's usually for those that are paid an hourly wage.

@7:34 Exacty..Nanny responsibilities should be clear in the contract. All things kids. Although, some employers do exploit employees. The first time they asked to pick up dry cleaning, I would've politely reminded them of my duties. You gotta nip shit like this in the bud from jump.

No disrespect. don't know why they thought Keisha was lesbian. She always had a cool and chic vibe about her. Kima maybe.

Its not uncommon for nannies to perform light household duties. If she didn't want to do that, she had every right to state it. But suing afterwards is ridiculous. Also, the purpose of salary is so that you're paid to do over 40 hours a week. I don't know many salaried people that work less than 40.

@9:16 I see what you did there. But how they get you is with that slick little phrase "other duties as assigned" so you gotta be careful with the "that aint in my job description" mess

This is their fault for not going through an angency and for hiring a Latino. Can we be honest? Latino people HATE black folks and I would never allow one into my home because all they do is plot, hate, and steal from you.

I know this sounds racist and xenophobic as hell, but I have a former college roommate who's married to an athlete and they live in Westchester County NY. Their housekeeper was stealing from them and it took the Filipino water cooler man who spoke Spanish to tell them because "Pilar" would openly talk about it on the phone when the owners weren't at home. I don't like making sweeping statements or accusations, but never hire Latinos if you're Black.

(One the other hand, they LOVE white people and will take all kinds of outright abuse from white employers.)

@1:26 a poster after my own heart!!! I have been saying for yearssss that Latino's HATE black people with a passion. Especially in a work environment... The worse racism I have ever received came at the hands of Latinos: men and women.... more than once this is not an isolated incident.... Pay attention to it and you'll see. They cant hide their disgust!
I remember my Spanish supervisor couldn't understand how I had a biracial cousin. And this woman was older than me with a child, just so much ignorance and prejudice that she couldn't understand interracial connections... She literally said she doesn't understand how I had a cousin that was part Filipina...

@ 1:47 & 1:26
I wouldn't say All Latinos but I will say there are a lot of Spanish people who hate all things black. I find in every Spanish culture. That light skin/ dark skin hate is real. Salute to my Puerto Ricans & Domincans, Cubans, Panamanians, bc a lot of them know they're black(not all but a lot, you may have to check 1 or 2 in Miami but...) It's them Mexicans, European Spanairds & uppity Latinos that try to look down on blacks...

Your Highness said...

@2:25 I was gonna single the Mexicans out but I aint wanna do it, so thank you for doing it for me! I had Mexican but I erased it and put Latino..

Anonymous said...

@2:25 yes. The light/dark hate is real. Especially in the carribean. But luckily I have a friend(s) that's from D.R and I'm from Haiti and we still getting along great for many years. But I wwould rather a nanny be an older black/carribean woman

Keisha was and still is beautiful & sexy, and hands-down the best-looking member of Total.

Other than that, I have nothing to add.

Lmao y'all ain't lying about them racist ass Latinos. I can't stand Mexicans. They are some plotting, stealing muthafuckas. And they are bold as fuck too when you catch their asses stealing.They will catch an attitude with you for confronting them. If you black and understand Spanish, they will talk about you and your kids in Spanish in front of you thinking you can't understand.

I too worked with a lot of mexicans at one time. Couldn't stand it. These greedy border fleeing dirtbags have the nerve to not want blacks in some of their establishments. If they were in power they would really dog us out. Hell, makes me want to vote for Trump so they can stop taking advantage of America. They sneak their asses over here and then have the nerve to demand shit as if they are entitled to it when they haven't invested a damn dime here or paid any taxes. Non registered baby having wetbacks.
