It's tough enough getting a job these days. But imagine if you were developmentally disabled.

Pam and Ivan were in the place, but they did not receive any money from the situtation, other than inordinate raises from Pam.
They were enjoying I am sure, that part of it, however, they were neither responsible for the illegalities, nor did they receive any illegal moneys. They were afraid, I am sure, of losing their jobs, but I dont know how much they knew about evidence to prove what Pam was doing. I dont think they knew about that until another person came forward who knew where the goods were and pushed the matter. You can always have suspicions, but if you dont have evidence, you really must be careful about lowering the boom. You could end up with the law suit and having to pay for it.

. Really???? They were afraid for their jobs??? If someone abuses and individual, do you shut up and bury your head in the sand because you don't want to lose your job?? Pathetic!! That's why people who have money and confidence, who don't worry about their job, Should NEVER be awarded in a position of management. Historically, who have made the most effective executives and managers. People with backbones.

I could not have said it better. There are management at Southeast works who were handed there positions. Does that mean they were the best choice. Not from what I witnessed. Management at Southeasts Backbone is non-existant.

You are now talking about the real and the ideal - I would tell all that I know and have done so in a given situation similar to this, however, I was the only one and the youngest one and had no children to support and no house payments, before you go judging others, you may want to ask yourself, what would I have done and put hyourself THERE.
I probably would have figured that it would be best to tell all, because in the long run, the place would really suffer and fall apart if I did not tell, so telling would probably be the ONLY way I could operate, butOf 40 girls in the situation I mentioned, I was the only one who came forward, and others had higher stakes.
Most people would not only not tell, but they would deny anything, so.... I would like to know you and know what have you done kin the past that required such courage?

Look at the response I gave to In he know. There are too many people in the US and in the world today who think they are "entitled" to an easy living, they forget our work place was fought for and many people died to have a living wage and good working conditions. This example of Pam is a really bad working condition for all who are there. It is poison. But how many of you exdpect your brother or sister to help you get and keep a job, to make sure you get extra bonuses etc etc because you are friendly with the boss. or because you dont mess with the boss's "pecadillos". At what point would you turn in the boss, when she steals a pencil, 2 pencils, a ream of paper, 100. dollars, a thousand dollars-where is the line for you? Pam was a bully among other things, and people, I suspect even y ou are easily bullied.However, your point is well-taken, aomwonw should have called it a lot sooner than was done, but there were more stronger people in stronger positions that should have done that than Ivan and Denise.

At Southeast works there is Medicaid fraud being committed on a regular basis in the SUPPORTIVE EMPLOYMENT DEPT. The supervisor chooses to look the other way because he is scared of confrontation and having to answer to those above him.

It is such a shame that Jeanette Lyons was able to get away with the terrible things she did while employed at VLI. She made her bed, now she has to lay in it. I hope that she is miserable as f*c*. She was such an employee who blamed everyone else but her self for the mistakes she made. Now all the board needs to do is get rid of Denise & Ivan. Denise is the most laziest person Ive ever known, once she loses her job, she will have no where to go. And for Ivan, well what can I say? Good luck to all of us who are still employed at VLI. Let's see how long we all last. VLI must look for a new building with no money & terrible credit (thanks to Jeannette for her stupidity for not paying the mortgage on the bldg). We may all end up working from home .....Denise would love that!

Yes Jeanette was also fired and so was randy faith the acting CEO after Pam, A lot of people there have done bad things not only Pan. As far as Chino Cents goes the only person in the office that was not married or had kids was was Susan farnworth and as far as I know she does not work there either so don't believe everything he or she is saying because chino dents is full of hot air. What is done is done and that is the way it is. What needs to happen is everyone who comes on here to talk trash about what when they don't know the full details. Let's get back to what's important and that is the people that VLI and SEW serve.

Susan Farnworth?? If it wasn't for that lady I would not have this job right now. Susan loan VLI money to keep us afloat and I really appreciate that.unlike certain people at VLI that never cared how much she saved us, and I know that first hand. I and other employees miss Susan very much. Thank you Susan for helping us out.

Susan did lend the company money, you are correct, but it was actually her moms retirement money and she got a high interest rate paid back to her when the money was only loaned for a day or two. So Susan did loan VLI money, not her own money and she also got paid for doing that. Things are not always as they seem!!!

you must be one of the ungrateful ones. Even if that came from her mother they still help us out. How can you be so evil and mean..We here at VLI still miss her and are grateful to her or her mother. And the sad part is VLI still owes Susan or her mother money that she loan. What a shame!!!

Miller chooses wealthy over all others

Republican crazy - Rep. Gary Miller's smoke screen about the sequester and how he and fellow Republicans are doing their best for the middle class.

Unfortunately for Miller, not all of us are Fox News viewers.

Jealous? To have lips like a grease monkey -- I don't think so! Her tits are as big as watermelons, I am far from being jealous. Susan Farnworth was so worthless at VLI.
