Javier Zenteno, native of Acatlan, Puebla - the Mexican state, just gave the first steps in the direction to carve out a new life. This comes all thanks to the work of the law firm Michael Faillace & Associates winning his labor exploitation case. Zenteno use to work in a diner making $25 an hour, sometimes up to 7 days a week varying times that could go for 12 hours without stopping on a weekend. A clear case of labor exploitation.
“I, like many Mexicans, don’t care about working hard. We don’t run away from jobs, the problem is not paying us what’s right and on top of that to fire us unjustly” says Zenteno. It was while he was on a job search on social media when he found the Facebook page of the lawyer Michael Faillace and he decided to present his case. They resolved the case swiftly in his favor and they won him an economic compensation.
Many years have passed since that afternoon in 1986 when he arrived to Los Angeles, California when he left studies in his hometown in hopes for a better future. In L.A. he worked in a McDonald’s and a clothes factory. Then he moved to the state of Florida in search of a better job. Since that didn’t work out, he moved to New York. Here he completely changed his destiny due to the fact that he acquired his citizenship and was able to get a capital investment thanks to Faillace & his Associates. The future looks promising, now everything is left in the hands of God that He allows the accomplishment of his objectives. That’s his “poblano dream”, to triumph in New York, which is already on the way.
