The buffalo is a highly valued commodity in the U.S. and the buffalo meat is a favorite of many Americans, including President Donald Trump.
But the U-Haul service is a tough sell to a small business.
Now, it’s been hit by a new class action lawsuit from a family of five, who say the company has failed to pay them for years.
The lawsuit says that U-haul failed to provide the proper wages for the workers to work, which the family says is part of a pattern of labor practices that left them unable to pay their bills and support their families.
“It was a very difficult decision for us to make,” said Jessica F. Meehan, the mother of the five.
She is one of three plaintiffs in the class action against U-haul, who are represented by the law firm of Davis Polk & Harland LLP.
“Our only hope was to have some sort of monetary relief,” Meeham said.
Meeshan and her husband worked for U-hams for two years before they were fired.
“They weren’t paid for their work.
They were paid less than $2 per hour, and they had to sign nondisclosure agreements,” Meesham said, adding that the company also failed to tell them what to do if they needed to file a lawsuit.
U-Hams was not immediately available for comment, but a spokesperson told NBC News the company “does not comment on pending litigation.”
The lawsuit was filed in U..
S District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
Hams filed a complaint in March with the National Labor Relations Board, alleging that the five employees were unlawfully fired for seeking union representation.
The company has hired the help of the National Employment Law Project to help it fight the lawsuit.
The National Labor Organization is also suing U-hauls for not paying workers a minimum wage and providing them with benefits, as well as for not providing them enough money to cover rent and other expenses.
MEEHAN IS ON THE CASE U-hopes to win a wage increase and benefits and also seeks a court order to allow her and her children to use their father’s U-passport.
“He has been in the service for 35 years and he’s a very proud U-hopper, and he never gives up.
He’s a really hard worker,” MEEhan said.
She added that Uhaul’s policies have left her and the family with “a lot of stress.”
The family says they are currently unable to afford to pay the bills for the next two years.
Uhaul says it has paid the family’s rent, but not for all the bills, including for food and utilities.
“U-haul is a company that works hard to provide outstanding service to our customers, and U-humbers commitment to provide these customers with a safe, reliable, and reliable transportation service is unmatched in the industry,” a Uhaul spokesperson said in a statement to NBC News.
Uhumbers attorneys have previously been represented by Robert L. Haines, a former federal judge who was previously named a senior partner at law firm Davis Polk.
Hains has also represented other small businesses, including the National Restaurant Association and the National Federation of Independent Businesses.
“As a result of the NLRB’s complaint, U-hatters customers and employees are owed millions of dollars in wages, benefits, and other compensation,” a spokesperson for Hains said.
UHaul says it will be defending the complaint vigorously and is considering a response.
The suit also names U-Hauls parent company, Tires International, as defendants.
Tires, whose parent company is Uhaul, is currently embroiled in a class action suit over overtime wages and other issues.
In December, Uhaul agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit brought by U.
That lawsuit accused Uhaul of not paying overtime to employees who had worked longer hours than their normal schedules and overpaid them for overtime work, among other allegations.
Uhaul said it agreed to pay $1 million in the settlement, and the company will now refund $1.2 million to its customers and provide $750,000 in employee benefits.
In the class-act suit, Uhauls attorneys allege that Uhumers practices left Uhumters and their families with significant debt.
“The amount of time and expenses Uhaul put into providing Uhaul service to the Uhumber family, who have been struggling financially for decades, is beyond comparison,” the complaint states.
The complaint also says Uhaul had a policy of using the Uhams’ Social Security numbers to file claims for unemployment benefits, Social Security disability payments, and federal unemployment compensation.
“In this particular instance, Uhumbs Social Security number was used to file the claim,” the lawsuit states.
