‘APPRENTICE' SPARKS A LABOR DISPUTE?

October 04, 2004 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
NEW YORK, Oct 4 "I expect to be compensated,' says Apprentice co-star and long time Donald Trump legal advisor, George Ross, who apparently worked pro bono for the first two seasons of Trump's very successful television venture.

Ross tells Broadcasting & Cable magazine in an exclusive interview in its October 4th edition that he ultimately expects to be paid for his work on the successful "Apprentice' television program in the upcoming season. "They'll do what's right. I'm not worried,' he tells B&C.

Trump, himself, was getting $50K per episode and has reportedly negotiated a $3.2 million dollar per season pay package for the next two seasons.

Ross gets well paid for the work he does for the Trump organization, itself.. "I'm not a poor person,' he told B&C in an exclusive interview appearing in the October 4th edition of the authoritative trade publication. But, to date Ross has not received compensation for being at the "Donald's' right hand all this time on TV.

Fear not. "I talked to him [Donald Trump] and told him I expect to be compensated' and he said: "you know, you're right.'
