I couldn't agree more with the other former employees.I worked for this woman ,Judy Katz ,over 20 years ago and she is notorious for being a conniving liar.Her daughters were trained well ....because they are exactly as unethical as she is.I had never before seen such a greedy,self absorbed family as this one .Evil at its best.All about the almighty dollar.I remember when we worked overtime and NOT being paid for it.After the labor board investigated and we all received checks for back pay,.she had her daughter Michele go around and she TOLD all of us to not cash our back- pay checks and give them back to her! Not a chance! We cashed them in and there was hell to pay for disregarding their request. This is so minor compared to this horrific tragedy of this child's death...However an indication of their work ethic.She would always intimidate us and have us lie when the state or health dept. would visit.I always knew it was just a matter of time before it would get worse.This does not surprise me.God bless little Benjamin.I pray for his family.I hope justice prevails! Shut all their day care centers and put them out of business forever!Sue them for everything they have.
I would sure hate to be in your shoes. Maybe you would have saved his life if you had reported all of that you just told us.

Nothing wrong with being in my shoes.I left there in a matter of months after reporting this over 20 years ago to the proper authorities.A lot of good that did.Who could have predicted nothing would change and this would end with this horific tragedy.

Problem is, too many people try once, when nothing happens they say "oh well, I tried." Working as a govt attny, I can tell you that there are a lot of reasons that things cannot get done that have nothing to do with whether the state cares or not. It's called due process. it's a basic human right, which unfortunately shields both the innocent and the horrible. If you are someone who has seen something, don't just report it once. If nothing changes, do it again. Then, again. Go to the media/press. Squeaky wheels can make things change and save lives.

Where did you learn how to read and write? Maybe you should go back to daycare and learn the English language.
