(Gulf News)   Indian diplomat who was caught paying her maid below the minimum wage: "The maid was trying to blackmail me" Asking for minimum wage isn't really blackmail, but what would you like me to play on this tiny violin?   (gulfnews.com) divider line 12

Chigau: My observation on caste systems in the work place, especially with Indian populations, is that it comes down to your parents.  My parents are farmers (considered low caste), so in the eyes of some of my Indian employees I should be the same caste as a farmer, as one does not switch castes without divine intervention or the help of a fairy godmother.  So it doesn't come to my employees minds that my parents are college educated, owning all of their own land and equipment, and making a comfortable life for themselves as they approach retirement.  It doesn't occur to them that i have several years of experience in my field, as well as a masters degree.  Many cant seem to comprehend these things, or maybe they choose not to.

All they see is that I should be of a lower caste than they were in India, and they resent it.  I have actually had my subordinates say that a "Filthy farms-son" has no right to tell them what to do.   I would laugh if it wasn't so sad.


That's okay. To us, you're all brown.

That's not blackmail, slorebag.

fark this biatch. Write diplomatic immunity on a hammer and every time she asks for it, hand it to her with a bag of sand. She may then pound to her heart's content.

Not a lawyer, nor a cop.

So I have to ask, is it normal for a person who pays under minimum wage to be arrested like that?
Wouldn't it be a civil suit without arrests?

/signed, befuddled
//break the law, pay the price. Just hope the laws are clear.
///underpaid, overworked slashies

TrixieDelite: RexTalionis: I have ZERO sympathy for Khobragade. When the maid, Sangeeta Richard, filed a lawsuit against Khobragade, did you know what she did?

Khobragade had Richard's husband and children in India arrested and held in detention.

This is the kind of person we're talking about.

Source:

"July 8: Richard visited an immigration attorney's firm in Manhattan, New York. A person present there told Rediff.com then that four individuals from the consulate soon arrived at the attorney's office.

There were discussions, and reports indicated Richard demanded a sum as her wages, and an ordinary Indian passport.

Meanwhile, her husband and child in India were taken into custody, according to the witness. A scared Richard spoke with them, and refused to leave the attorney's office premises."

While I'm all for using the Internet as a source, I don't think Reddit is your best choice for accurate reporting.


I didn't.

/Reading comprehension, yo.

lennavan: I think the comparison would be to imagine arresting and strip searching a female American diplomat because she was found to be chatting with a non-relative male in Saudi Arabia.


Whore.

Are you really talking about intra-Indian relations today?  In 2013?  The couple of Indians I hang out with on occasion insist that the caste thing is long gone or at least not taken seriously by anyone.

And people down here in the South insist they're not racist.


My wife claims it doesn't matter anymore and I laugh and say "that's because you're brahmin, dear."

Yes, but did the strip search also include an eight minute song and dance routine?

Because 99.6% of those disrespected poors in the U.S. own a refrigerator.

I understand some of the outrage at what she did, but for christ's sake the women is seriously smokin' hot, and not in the Daily Fail sense. Shouldn't that count for something?
