They should be reported to the State and Labor Board for bias and unfair labor practises. They seem to have more bosses than workers, and a friend of mine said the little fellow looks like the owner of a Deli on the corner of Fillmore and Rodney and his homey assistant looks like one of the customers.

I did a google street view on that Deli and that area looks like it really got cleaned up. I think some people complained about that FELDER bunch to the State when they were at the Sheridan nursing home.

I wonder where the Zacher girls dug up that FELDER bunch?
They got FELDER from some ghetto in Alabama.

25 years ago when the original owners of zacher healthcare were there like evelyn zacher who would actually sit with you and talk about your problems and give a hoot. We actually had a pig roast and volleyball teams for emolyees during the summer.i had 23 wonderful early years with the company. The company grew and the amount of talented dedicated people have dwindled to smoking, gossipy people who dont give a dam about people or their jobs and are lazy and put in a 4 hour day.The good old days are gone forever so find that magic pill and check out of here on your terms . Id rather let my parents not be forced fed by these idiots and check out naturally

For security reasons, I am not going to use my real identity, but I had real good relations with William and Evelyn Zacher and even with Rick Zacher. They were really compassionate and gave a hoot about not only residents but all employees. They now have a sub-contractor called Felder Services, running the housekeeping and laundry, who could care less about employees except what they can push out of them. Of course they have their pets.

I don't think that Felder bunch will be arounnd for much longer. A lot of employees are complaining and I don't think the administration is too happy with them.

It all boils down to how much cash they can extract for themselves while spending as little as possible on the "storage" of those entrusted to their care. The truth will come out very soon, all of it this time.

The residents get fairly good care, but the employees are getting the shaft, especially the housekeeping and laundry workers pushed into working for that rent a service, " FELDER SERVICES "

THESE HOMES DESPERATELY NEED A GOOD, STRONG UNION NOW.
IT WASN'T REALLY NEEDED IN THE PAST, BUT WITH THAT FELDER BUNCH HERE NOW, IT REALLY IS RIPE FOR ONE.

You can sometimes blame the employees for killing the jobs cuz they are trying to impress the bosses while ruining it for normal people.

As soon as I saw " FELDER SERVICES ", I almost split a gut laughing. The bosses are nothing but a bunch of GHETTO YUPPIES. They belong in the city of Buffalo and not in Amherst, Tonawanda or Lackawanna.
Aint that the truth.

The 2 Zacher sisters run Legacy and Wms. Suburban for awhile now and to cut costs they use this rent a housekeeper and laundry firm called FELDER Co. that cut employees to the bone and are a bunch of slave drivers who care nothing about their employees, only their own reputation for cutting costs.
I hear they operate like the 1920's South.Be careful as you could be here today and gone tomorrow.
Those homes were pleasant to work in until the Zacher sisters took over, cutting costs by subcontracting those rent a companies in and giving the employees the shaft.

There is a class action lawsuit being filed against the facility. Anyone who worked there and is willing to tell the whole story should contact Brown Chiari.

Thanks for the info. I will call Brown Chiari about what can be done. I was going to call Lindy Korn, but that lawyer was mostly for sex discrimination, which didn't fit my problem. Labor board, State etc. may help also.
