We are receiving reports that yesterday at 4pm Trident Construction did not pay their workers at the Waldorf Astoria.
The owner doesn't seem to be hurting for cash it seems. An investigation revealed Trident General Contracting Received $3.7 Million in PPP funding from the Federal Government in April of 2020.
Not too long after, Trident President Patrick Murphy purchased a house in Rye, NY for $2.8 Million in July. Coincidence? I think not!
In addition to taking taxpayer money and three months later buying a house, Trident has been sued in federal court for wage theft (Case 1:20-cv-11065 Filed 12/30/20) and previously, racial discrimination (Case 1:19-cv-05406 Filed 06/10/19)
Trident is a sub-contractor hired by AECOM Tishman.
AECOM Tishman manages the entire constructrion site, having implementing procedures & policies such as their famous A & B door (AKA the #poordoor) . The Waldorf Astoria is owned by Anbang Insurance Group. Angbang was seized by the Chinese Government in 2018 and remains under government control and leadership to this day.
