Employees of one of the biggest porta-potty businesses in New York City have launched a class-action lawsuit claiming that they’re getting skimped on overtime. The allegations are particularly heinous considering the demands of the job involve being around literal stinking piles of shit on a daily basis.

The New York Daily News reports that the papers, which will be filed in Manhatted Federal Court on Tuesday, claim porta-potty company Callahead cheats “laborers out of as much as 30 hours of overtime a week.”

From the Daily News:

Juan Vargas, 41, said he normally worked Monday to Thursday, and that shifts ended only when all of the site visits were complete. In practice, that meant he worked around 53 to 60 hours a week but was only paid for 40, Vargas says.

He also often had to work Fridays but was told not to clock in, papers claim.

Callahead, the suit charges, has a policy of only paying workers for 10 hours of overtime on Fridays — even though days typically lasted 14 to 16 hours.

Callahead employs 100 people and serves New York’s five boroughs, in addition to Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties. This is apparently the sixth lawsuit of its kind brought against Callahead in seven years, according to the lawsuit.

Said another Callahead employee Jeury Marte: “The job is really gross. It’s nasty. It’s hard…I worked every Friday and I didn’t get paid a dime for it over 10 years.”
