Donald Trump hired hundreds of undocumented Polish immigrants to demolish a New York City building in 1980 and paid them as little as $4 an hour without providing proper safety equipment to do the job – court documents show.
‘We worked in horrid – terrible conditions’ Wojciech Kozak – one of the undocumented Polish workers at the demolition site told the Times.
‘We were frightened illegal immigrants and did not know enough about our rights’.
The settlement was kept under seal for nearly two decades.
But last week in response to a motion filed by Time Inc. and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press – U.S. District Court Judge Loretta A. Preska ordered the documents be made public.
