Many of us here in Tennessee and all over the country, see this country as being one of having opportunities that other countries do not have and may never have. This is why so many people from other parts of the world come to the United States to find work, and freedoms that they could not have where they came from. Unfortunately, many times these people become the targets for low wages, no overtime pay, and even false promises of work.

In this case, a lawsuit was filed for a franchise owner of All Pro Cleaning systems because of claims that the Westboro Firm was targeting immigrants to encourage them to purchase franchise in the cleaning company, then failing to provide them with the promised work. The lawsuit also claims that the Westboro Firm wrongfully classifies their workers as independent contractors and makes deductions from their pay that is against the law. All Pro also denied workers minimum wage and overtime pay, charges the workers with jobs and makes them pay for expenses that normally are paid by an employer. The president and chief executive officer for All Pro, Ronald Showalter ,denies mistreating franchise owners and claims that franchises are sold according to federal guidelines.
This lawsuit names Leila Munik of Lowell as the plaintiff but there are also ten All Pro franchise owners that want to be part of the case which could lead to the judge seeing it as a class action to include all of the owners.
