    A USA Today analysis published Thursday uncovered 60 lawsuits by ordinary Americans who say Trump and his businesses failed to pay them for their work.

    The list includes plumbers and painters, waiters and bartenders, real estate brokers and even law firms who helped him defend such suits.

    The documents reviewed by the newspaper include:

    More than 200 liens since the 1980s that were filed by contractors and workers who said they were stiffed. Records released by casino regulators in 1990 that show 253 subcontractors on a single project were not paid in full or on time.

    One of the reasons I don't like him is that I've known this type of thing for years about the guy from when a biz acquaintance, someone I was very friendly with at the time, told me Trump demanded work done free if he was to work for him at all. And he did work for him at the professional level. I won't say in what capacity.

    I don't recall all the specifics of that conversation, this was a decade or more ago, but I've long kept in mind--whether by his saying or by my speculating during our conversation--that it was as if the free work was in exchange for being able to put on your resume or in your portfolio that you'd done work for the egomaniac.

    It would be like going to work for mom and pop computer repair company or going to work for Intel and having Intel say they're going to pay you less because your resume will look better then it would should you take the mom and pop position after having worked for the major corporation instead. So they want a cut of the action from your labor outside of you actually doing work for them.

    It is an absolute abuse of labor.

    Make no mistake about it, this guy Trump is Scum.

    Not surprising, given his contempt for the truth and anyone else. From where I sit, it looks YUUUGE!

    He lives in mansions and flies around in private jets -- but somehow thinks it's fine cheat hard-working Americans out of what he owes them.
    Trump is a complete and utter sleaze. He should have to pay all those people every cent he owes them, or have his money-grubbing ass slapped into prison.
