A group of 5 Jamaican nationals who were hired to work as service staff are suing their former employer and private ski resort, The Yellowstone Club over what they claim were false promises of lavish tips and other financial compensation. A complaint was also submitted to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that claims discrimination by the resort.
The Jamaicans were living and working in Montana for the winter on H-2B visas. During their time working for the Yellowstone Club, they claim a temp-staffing firm out of Georgia diminished their pay.
Although details remain unclear, News Americas is reporting that the former employees allege they were treated differently because of the color of their skin. Bloomberg says one of the plaintiffs even cooked meals for some of the world’s richest individuals including Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.
