Martha Arlen Testimonial

I am Martha, a “warrior” in life.  Seems like I have been the ‘Chosen One’,to experience all the natural things in life, the HARD WAY.  Well, at the darkest of recent times, I found a helping hand, and sincere advocate, in the EMPLOYEE RIGHTS CENTER Team!  This is my story.   September 2013 I journeyed to San Diego from Orange County, at the urging of a friend of mine.  The recent decade of economic distress in the marketplace seemed  interminable in Orange County, where I called home since graduating college.  I launched out hoping for new opportunities and a fresh start!  That supposed “friend” turned out to be the opposite of one.  I found myself in a foreign environment, without financial means, abandoned, and marooned in downtown San Diego.   Through charitable organizations reaching out to sudden homeless individuals in the City, I found compassion and sustenance.  Rachel’s Women’s Center

Testimonial of Augustine Barragan

Testimonial of Augustine Barragan (translated from Spanish to English) San Diego CA, August 3, 2014 Everything began on July 19, 2005.  I found an ad in the newspaper offering work replacing roofs, with the potential to earn between $100,000 and $200,000 per year.  I called and asked for Greg Johnson.  He gave me an interview appointment with the company, and he hired me on the spot. He told me that I would be working Monday through Friday from 9 to 5, and on Saturdays from 10 to 4.  He trained me for more than two weeks, taking me to houses to measure roofs and do estimates for roof replacements.  He told me that he would be paying me for the training, and then he would be sending me out to do the work alone.  He would then pay me a 50% commission on the contract value of the job.
