Re: I am a whistleblower. OSHA is mishandling my case because it's Gulf oil spill related
In March of 2009 my aunt and I took jobs as housekeepers/condo cleaners for Meyer Real Estate in Gulf Shores, Alabama, one of the largest vacation property management companies in the United States. We had no experience in housekeeping. Prior to this, we had a vintage clothing business for many years which we had to close because we were no longer making a profit due to the economy. We both have college educations and my aunt has 20+ years experience in retail management, but this was the only job we could find. We took the jobs out of desperation...and because we were told in our orientation that we would make at least $16-18 dollars an hour.

Over the course of the next year, we would scrub 3,100 toilets, make approximately 6,000 beds and scrape dried spaghetti and shrimp shells from 1,200 kitchens. Most of the time we made less than minimum wage, sometimes working over 80 hours a week. Meyer also subjected their housekeepers to safety hazards. But we were warned by everyone there, including a field supervisor, to keep our mouths shut and not complain, or we would be fired.

In the early spring of 2010, we made a startling discovery- management was fraudulently altering time records to avoid paying overtime. We called the Wage and Hour Board and reported this, but rather than forcing them to pay their employees the money owed, Mr.Anthony Jacobs of the W&H Board's Mobile, AL office helped them devise a scheme to avoid paying their employees overtime wages. Meyer did, however, write checks for some of the overtime backpay- this multi-million dollar company cheated one housekeeper(a woman with a disabled child in a wheelchair) out of over $50,000 in overtime wages over a three-year period...they gave her a check for less than $500. But this was just the beginning.

April 20, 2010- the date of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill- changed everything here on the Gulf of Mexico. I won't go on and on about it...you all know the basic, sanitized version of what happened. What you may or may not know is that over 200 million gallons of oil was released into the Gulf. 2 million gallons of highly toxic Corexit dispersant was sprayed and sank most of that oil. We had dead baby dolphins covered in oil washing up on the shore here, but that managed to stay out of the national media. The citizens of this area and those doing clean up work were exposed to these toxins...people have died, and many are sick.

While many of the oil spill clean-up workers had advocates fighting for their safety and rights, there was one group which was neglected- the housekeepers who cleaned up the condominiums and beach front houses. As housekeepers for Meyer Real Estate, we were forced to clean up oil and dispersant soaked debris from around these beach houses. We had to clean up the tar balls the guests would drag in. We were instructed to clean it up with Dawn and bleach(according to the MSDS for Corexit on OSHA's website, it is hazardous to mix Corexit and bleach). We also had to clean the rust-colored Corexit residue on the exterior patio doors. Housekeepers started having upper respiratory problems, including my aunt. Both of my ear got infected(this was fairly common symptom) and one of them ruptured. But as Meyer housekeepers, we didn't have health insurance, and most of us went without medical treatment.

I called OSHA in late August of 2010 and filed a complaint. I told the agent I was concerned I might get fired for making the report, but he was very reassuring and told me if that happened, they wouldn't get away with it. A few weeks later, My aunt and I were terminated from our jobs at Meyer Real Estate.

But now, over a year later, what has happened? NOTHING! The investigation for wrongful termination under the Whistleblower Protection Act is still ongoing. OSHA has mishandled it from day one and I just don't know what to do. I can't even find a lawyer around here because every one I call says they can't take the case because it would be a conflict of interest. Meyer is a powerful and corrupt company...everyone is scared of them.

So, I'm posting this just to get the word out, and because I'm hoping some of you might have advice on what I can do about this situation. Sorry for the rant...I know it's not very coherent or well-written, but I am so sick of thinking and talking about this that I can't think straight. So, thanks for taking the time to read it.

Re: I am a whistleblower. OSHA is mishandling my case because it's Gulf oil spill related
OP I feel for you and all the other affected by the GOM oil spill. I personally believe is was not an accident it was a very strange thing that happened. They knew where they were drilling and the dangers involved and yet the whole fiasco was a comedy of errors.

We must all face this fact our country has been infiltrated and overthrown by people who are operating it for their own self interests. There will be no help for any of us from our state and federal institutions they have been completely corrupted. This is not to say that there are not some good people still working their but their hands are tied.

Unfortunately, there are more, very bad and unfair things that are going to occur. I have always felt that it is "we the people" who must form small local groups, come together and help ourselves and one another. We will get no help from our corrupted government. Don't expect any help from them.

Even the charities are corrupted. When Katrina hit New Orleans I could not believe my eyes as to what was happening. I donated 2x to the Red Cross only to realize later that most of my money likely went to pay inflated salaries and not help the people.

NO IF WE ARE GOING TO CHANGE THIS COUNTRY IT HAS TO BE DONE FROM THE BOTTOM UP. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET PEOPLE IN MY AREA TO COME TOGETHER BECAUSE i KNOW WHAT IS COMING. BUT MOST CAN'T SEE IT.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11053237


The people who worked on the Exon Valdez oil spill where corexit was used came done with all types of health problems(cancer, respiratory disease, etc.) and most died of these conditions before the age of 52 y.o. The entire town was decimated as there was no longer a way to earn a living. Incidents of disease, divorce, alcoholism, violence increased dramatically as a result of the oil spill.

The people of Alaska were awarded something like $5 billion from the courts. However, Exon appealed the settlement and to this date no money has been paid. In addition, the settlement amount has been reduced to about $.8 million but most of the people who were to receive it have already died.

Re: I am a whistleblower. OSHA is mishandling my case because it's Gulf oil spill related
well the question i would ask is, have you learned anything? how does it make you feel when money becomes god? right and wrong come down to a dollar figure/

just wait until china runs the world, that godless bunch will shot you if you cause a fuss and they will do it in front of everyone to prove a point.

what is worse than that, is our every leaders sold us out right in front of our faces. as long as they go to the big house at night and the summer get away's, all is well.

the funniest thing is, have one of these guys come riding up in a limo, the camera (media) crews are there and all the little people are wowing them, as if they are great or something. these guys are ruthless and the people love them?

same with the mafia shows, they get top rating, as if the people think it's cool to be murders and rapest.. i cant make heads or tails of this place.

what is good? what is bad? does anyone know? is money the bottom line?


WELL I SAY NO! JUSTICE IS FIXING TO RAISE IT'S PRETTY HEAD. the whole world will know. it's judgement day!


roll the stone away...

and these anti god folks, man it does not get any nuttier.

praise GOD, he is coming to town...soon

the big car, the house on the hill, even the bunker freaks, the elite will in-tomb themselves. let the games begin.

I don't think they should get away with this, but I don't know how you are going to fight this. Have you tried the Better Business Bureau? I would. As far as the repurcussions from the BP oil spill, good luck with that one. There are too many powerful people behind the BP oil spill, but I would fight for my wages. If you think you have that much coming in compensation, higher a good lawyer. What have you got to lose?
