: . Tabloid Fodder:
The Joseph family chose the wrong city in which to fuck with a Filipina maid:
- She worked from 4 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. every day, and was only paid a total of $1,050 over two years, which was wired to her mother in the Philippines, according to her complaint.
Manliguez also claims she was barred from eating at the kitchen table. She was permitted to eat only leftovers and "she had to eat by the washing machine in the kitchen or on the floor," according to the complaint.
"One day I go to Boston with them and he orders pizza in the restaurant and he didn't order for me," Manliguez told The News. "When his children were finished, he gave me what they had left."
She says she was kept locked in the house, forbidden from using the telephone, denied flu medication and basic toiletries.
"When Somanti Joseph was feeling generous, she would allow Ms. Manliguez to use her shampoo," the complaint said.
