    You need to contact a labor attorney in your area, he can work with you about the illegal conditions, and help you be properly compensated for your work without the mistreatment. 

    If you stay, you will be miserable, but if you just quit, he will find someone else to exploit.

    You can at least get aletter from an attorny demanding the back pay that he owes you. I would not stand for that. I wouldnt quit though because the job market is so bad…and according to what you stated you are not from this country so it might be harder for you to find work. i would sit down and talk to him also and see if he can work something out for you.

    Good luck!

    Quit and hire an attorney.  I know you said you have stress, but quitting will take some of that away.  He can’t get away with doing this.  He is breaking the law, and if not you, he will just do it to someone else.  He wants you there because he is getting away with it.  You are married now.  Your daughter is now your husband’s as well.  That is part of the commitment when you marry someone who already has children.  My dad (stepdad) took on our financial responsibility when he married my mom.  He has never once acted like we weren’t his kids, and he often forgets that we aren’t his biological children.  I’m not even sure if you should give a two-weeks notice, but if you feel it is the right thing to do, put it in right away. 


    The job market may look bad, but you said you work for a dry cleaner?  I’m not sure what you do, but your experience will make finding another job easier.  And though it may not be the best solution, there are places that are always hiring.  Even if you just have to do it temporarily, get a job in fast food, a hotel, a restaurant, or a temp agency.

    I agree with the others.  What he’s doing is absolutely illegal and he will continue until he is forced to stop.  Everyone is afraid to turn him in because they think they will suffer the consequences when really, it is him that is doing everything wrong here.  Get an attorney, because he needs to be punished for all the things he has done to make you and the other workers suffer!
