If those employees are like these here in Burbank….they are not legal. I know several here who do not have their green card and have worked at several places here and in LA. This is going to be interesting to followto see how this ends….

Peace.

It’s pretty obvious to me he’s heading to PA.

He looks hot, in an ordinary guy sort of way (which happens to be my favorite way).

@Maggie P.U.: Legality will not matter, they get the pay if they earned it. Same with workers compensation. These pay related actions are very common, no reason to be making so much hay out of it. Restaurants stiff their employees often

If they were illegal aliens I doubt they would sue…would be found out by immigration…this happens a lot in the food industry..you get owners who don’t want to do right by their employees…these just happen to be famous owners..

THE 'NEW' DARGAB IS BROOKE @ 08/17/2011 at 8:17 pm

Running away from his problems I see. Loser.
Gerard is NOT a “catch” by any means.
Nice guy when he wants something. Otherwise. Like a big doofus.

@CJ: @CJ: no one in State workers comp or in State labor actions ever contacts the INS (who are feds) . INS does not have enough people to arrest all the illegals in Southern California working in the various industries. For the most part, they have purchased social security numbers somewhere that may pass limited inspection. For some purposes, the labor board has assigned them specific limited social security numbers, so they collect disability, etc. I was often told in depositions where the social security number was purchased, and how much it cost. There was nothing I could do about it.

I would guess half of my caseload during the 16 years I worked for the State of California were illegals. We never reported them, just too many of them to bother. INS would have laughed at us. If they had injuries, we took care of them. Many employers tried to take advantage of them, and not pay overtime, or provide breaks. This commonly came out in depositions.

With some people who were very seriously injured, we might make arrangements for them to have a sustaining business back in the home country.

Once in a while INS will do a bust on a garment factory, and people go flying out windows and doors. Changes in the workers compensation system, the recession, and some improved programs for employers to check the validity of identification have cut into the annual influx of illegals, but huge numbers are still here. They do very well with an underground economy as well, flea markets, etc. Amazingly resilient.

I wonder if Christina Aguilera and Adele fought over the snack table on set???
lol

@Maggie P.U.:
Hi stupid. You can’t sue if you are an illegal.

Water Boy @ 08/17/2011 at 8:22 pm

Every time I see Gerard I laugh because I heard he sucks in bed.

He is running to NYC to see Israeli Model lol

oldbutnotdead @ 08/17/2011 at 8:25 pm

@Dumbo Maggie: Dont show off anymore, my dear, are you about 12? Yes, indeed, people sue in Labor and Workers Comp boards all the time, as illegals. See my post above.

Stinky P.U. @ 08/17/2011 at 8:27 pm

@oldbutnotdead:
I don’t think anyone wants to read your novels on these boards, oldlady.

By the way…can’t wait for Gerard’s sh*tstorm of movies hits the theaters – direct to video.
He will be solidified as a Z-Lister after this crop o’ stinkers.
Fool.

#14 Dumb A$$ Maggie- My A$$ they can’t!!!!! I have been in court and seen it!!!!!! Any lawyer will tell you they are the cases a Attorney wants!!!!! Not just here in Cali., but every State is dealing with the issues….. they work in a job regardless of card or not they fall under Labor guidelines and regulations (not to mention WC, (Workmans Comp)… thus my remark I will like to see the out come of this…. because if no green card and hired that is another issue and it may continue on not leaving it at this one suit….

Before you make your snide remarks why don’t you research first. I did and have for several years now. In the mean time have a nice day….

Peace.

Their are so many G.B.threads I can’t keep up! but I’m not complaining. I like the shorter and dyed hair on him myself but I do like the Grey on him also,having more than my fair share myself

Comment about the last G.B. thread.I never noticed the “package” myself until you all pointed that out.I couldn’t finish my lunch Thank-you very much!

@ Manny and Maggie P.U. I know their is nothing that I can say or do to make things better but *hugs*

Being a Yankees fan myself I’m really like the hat! The smile of his is what always gets me *swoon* BTW why is he always described as “Scottish Actor”? most people know that by now don’t they?and what do you all think of the supposed lawsuit?

Maggie P.U. @ 08/17/2011 at 8:37 pm

@ 9 OBND…not surprised…. but have a funny feeling (going on what read) it won’t end there….

Thanks for the input.

Peace.

@Maggie P.U.:
You let yourself get riled up over random drive by trolls?
No wonder Manny has you in a virtual headlock.
You lose your sh*t over everything.

Any recent posts were imposters. I haven’t posted in a while. More important things to do
;)

Maggie P.U. @ 08/17/2011 at 8:45 pm

@21 Aqua…thanks babe for your kindness… sure Manny appreciates it (and will). And as for the “package” must not have read the label on the neck of his suit (will shrink when wet…Dry Clean only).

@6 Late Evie-Think so to… that is where the MGP thing is isn’t it?

@14 Dumbo Maggie…forgot something-”Stupid is is as Stupid does”
and while you are sitting on your throne passing judgement…why don’t you look up issues in Texas….. where illegals are suing from the other side of the border (from Mexico), *just for starters….(can’t sue my a$$…..)

Have a great day…

Peace
