A group of current and former drivers and ride-along helpers for Waste
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota by Chuck Saleen and Eugene Brown, encompasses every state except California, where a separate suit is pending. It includes drivers and helpers who worked full time for the Houston-based trash hauler for the past three years.
The plaintiffs’ attorney Michele Fisher said, “We believe that Waste Management Inc. knew these employees were routinely missing their breaks, but still denied them this pay.”
