I found out the owner of the health club i work at was accepted on the Oregon health plan. He owns a very profitable business, A yacht, sailboat. And flies to the Philippines five or six times a year. He likes them young. Should I turn him in?

Why do you feel the need to rat him out?

So what? Why is it your job to inform on him?

He is not a very honest man. And this is welfare fraud. There are plenty of people who need help far more than he does

And I understand and agree with you. But the question remains. Why is it your job to rat him out?

If you have proof, call, but not until you have a job backup plan.

I'm going to turn him in for wage violation too. Either way I'm going to probably get fired or laid off. OSHA is breathing down his neck finally.

Isn't getting everyone onto a gov plan what democrats really want anyway?

If you have actual evidence he is committing a crime, like welfare fraud or tax fraud, turn him in. If you just don't think he pays you enough, but how he pays is legal, even if just barely, quit. He has no duty to share his profit with employees.

It's this kind of person that runs up the costs for the really needy. Report him.

Turn him in for welfare fraud, and go find a better place to work. Sounds like you are very unhappy with the working conditions. No reason at all to go through life unhappy at work if you aren't even getting paid.

Turn him in for what, exactly? Below you were mentioning OSHA, but in the poll you seemed to hint at something much worse...

Yeah, that "likes them young" comment really threw me. How did you come across THAT information?

Right. If that's what he's really up to I'd probably just run over him in the parking lot.

You told my coworker in the house. What I'm going to turn him in for his welfare fraud. And unfair wages. Two different agencies. He pays seven S. $750 a month. But he's a millionaire.

I disagree about turning him in for unfair wages. None of you are being forced to work for him.

But what was the "he likes them young" comment? There are ppl who go to that region because they can get away with abusing kids there.

I agree with other comments on the poll. You can't count on someone else to turn him in and someone should. People passively accepting bad behavior is more and more common. Also, what a jerk.

That's sort of how I feel the other people they pulled the wage thing on, paying them per person rather than paying them hourly just quit.

Welfare fraud. Unfair wages. I would imagine what another coworker turn them in on the building. He will get charges there too.

The way he treats his employees? I wouldn't hesitate to turn him in. Is he american or is he an immigrant?

He's American. He grew up in Southern California. Was a teacher and then he built the health club. It's never been married and is not good at sharing. I gave them a cinnamon roll for Christmas and he almost teared up.

Not a thing. I was just wondering if it was someone I knew. Short story- Greek immigrant, exact same things (or close to that) exact same charges, moved out overnight. Thought maybe was same guy.

It sounds like he is by passing some codes to run a health club.

Very much so. There is black mold in the ceiling of the woman's locker room. And I guess quite a few other places.

I'm already going to turn them over to the state labor commission. Other half club members have turned them over to OSHA and he's in trouble from them. He is known for being a very stingy man trying to cheat his employees out of wages.
