My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: New Jersey.
full time 6 days x eight hours plus per day= *required pay 75% towards rent weekly; take home for a family $150-200 per month; now landlord trying to muscle me for more money. This week my boss actually tried to take my entire pay for rent. two weeks before xmas and they want my whole check. How can that be ? Can they do that, seriously ?
He stated we had an agreement for fifty percent of pay towards the rent in exchange for employment. Little math: And I am consistently paying seventy five percent or more (which is about 99.9 percent of the time). So what exactly am I missing here? Arent we already over some sort of poverty line ratio debt ? what the?
Ebenezer Scrooge isn't just around for Christmas; he's here year long! cold-hearted, tight-fisted and greedy man, who despises everything that pleases others. Anyway.... ..my hours are not my own; time spent out sick reflect my out of pocket; constantly berated and made to feel like a second class citizen; privately owned, unstable hostile, environment.
So many complications, any advice ?
