California so-called 'nightmare nanny' says was exploited by family

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 06:48
A woman dubbed the "nightmare nanny" in U.S. media after she refused to move out of the house of a California family she was working for has said she was being exploited. Speaking out publicly for the first time, Diane Stretton, 64, told Los Angeles radio station KNX 1070 and television station KTLA in interviews on Monday that she was forced to work for days on end without breaks looking after Ralph and Marcella Bracamonte's three children, and quit before she was fired.   "They were the ones that were trying to exploit me as if I was some poor migrant worker from a foreign country that they could just exploit and work 24/7," Stretton told KNX.  The Bracamontes have said they hired Stretton in March to watch their children and do chores for room and board in their Upland home but that she stopped working within weeks. They say the nanny told them she had chronic pulmonary disease, ignored repeated requests to leave and made them scared for their property and the safety of their children, ages 11, 4 and 1. Stretton said she was doing her job.  "There wasn't a single day I was there except for the two days I was sick that I didn't do dishes or about two to three hours of cleanup," she told KTLA.  She also told the station the family tried to feed her dog food and that Marcella Bracamonte had a temper.  The Bracamontes could not be reached for comment.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 06:44
By Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - Last month, Suzanne Chase opened a letter from a Veterans Affairs hospital offering her husband medical help - an offer that she said came nearly two years after his death. Douglas Chase, a Vietnam veteran, died in August 2012 of complications from melanoma, several months after he applied for transfer to a Veterans Affairs hospital in Massachusetts. The VA is embroiled in a scandal over widespread evidence of delays. President Barack Obama has pledged to overhaul the agency, which he says has frayed under the strain of caring for more than 6 million patients a year.
