Mr. Bobby Reyes, I guess being a friend of Asian Journal has its price because nowhere in your website did you ever investigate the newspaper's labor violations that you said you will conduct. Well, too late Mr. investigative reporter, Asian Journal beat you to the punch. You don't have to do any work, if at all, as they have decided to admit, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labor, that they violated federal labor laws, and provisions of immigration laws relating to the H1-B program, and are barred from hiring foreign workers for two years. For your information, even the Associated Press carried the story and distributed the article across the globe. Even my local paper here in Washington, a mainstream print media, carried the story. You could've been the author of that if you did your job, you know? I believe you owe your readers a retraction when you said that Asian Journal was among the best employers of your kababayans. Again, FYI, the publishers of Asian Journal and Balikbayan Magazine are a fake because while it touts OFWs as the new national heroes of the country in the magazine, the Filipino publishers are the ones abusing YOUR FELLOW countrymen. Their fellow countrymen. The OFWs. Just imagine a half a million dollars in back wages. And we're just talking of about what, 20-30 employees? How long did Asian Journal abuse their employees? What about the taxes that they owe the IRS in relation to this $500,000 in wages? The medicare and SS contributions? Well, better late than never. I hope that the Dept. of Labor press release (available at the DOL website) will see posted on this website. Or, you could do yourself a favor and write about the violations that you, the publishers and their lawyers earlier said were never true. I remain...a victim.
