Corporate America Strangles Employees Rights and the Economy – Los Angeles Employment Attorneys Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik Appears on CNN “Money for Lunch”

by Norman B. Blumenthal on October 12, 2012

Norm Blumenthal Video  “The purpose of a corporation is to make money . . . my job is to do what is best for the employee,” stated Los Angeles Employment Lawyer Norman Blumenthal.  “Corporations are our adversary.”  Appearing as a guest on the CNN radio talk show “Money for Lunch” Blumenthal discussed how the current state of corporate America negatively affects employee rights.

In a recession, one of the steps corporations use to reduce their costs is to “reclassify hourly employees as salaried employees to eliminate paying overtime,” continued Blumenthal.  “If a corporation was told they could not classify claims adjusters, underwriters, lab and computer techs, location managers, sorting supervisors, warehouse supervisors, assistant managers, and more as executives or administrators of the company; that they had to be classified as hourly employees, nonexempt employees, there would be 2 million more jobs tomorrow!  Furthermore, class actions are unequivocally a good mechanism for employees to recover unpaid wages against their employer.”

Money for Lunch, which airs on CNN radio in Houston, features influential people from the business and nonprofit world.
