We worked for David Miscavige and the Church of Scientology for many years. We signed billion year contracts but were given no benefits, no minimum wage, etc. If we got sick we had no medical care — we had to go freeload at County USC and pose as indigents. Meanwhile, we worked long hours doing everything and anything David Miscavige and the Church asked for or else we would be beaten and thrown into a religious prison known as the RPF.
We were only paid $8.00 per week.
The work we hated the most was selling the Basics. One time one of us refused to sell the Basics and Davis Miscavige screamed at him, “How dare you refuse to sell the Basics after everything I’ve done for you! ” David Miscavige would not stop yelling and then punched my friend right in the nose so that he bled all over his shirt! My friend was bleeding from his nose and David Miscavige’s secret mistress Laurisse Henley-Smith took out a first-aid kit and stopped the bleeding. Then, acting like nothing ever happened, David Miscavige threw an old shirt at my friend and said, “Here’s a new shirt so that you don’t have an overt-motivator sequence on me!”
We are consulting a lawyer. We told her everything we know and also gave her all the documentation we have. The lawyer told us that we were assault & battery victims and not religious volunteers. She said that David Miscavige’s business practices violates multiple federal and state laws like, no minimum wage, overtime, failure to withhold federal and state income tax, failure to pay unemployment and disability insurance and failure to pay worker’s compensation insurance, to name a few.
The lawyer spoke with someone at the Department of Industrial Relations who confirmed that we could go there and lodge an official complaint. They take it very seriously. The lawyer is also arranging a meeting with the IRS to discuss fraud we saw when we worked for ASI, BPI, and other places where we moved money around for David Miscavige and told lies for the Church. The attorney said we can get protection as whistleblowers.
The lawyer told us that it is illegal to for David Miscavige to beat people and to lie to his parishioners for money. The lawyer told us to report such illegal activities, and the documentation we have, to the internet and law enforcement.
Our only reason for sending you this email is to warn you not to get fooled by David Miscavige’s “kindness”. If you are working for David Miscavige see to it that your rights are not violated and get paid as the law demands.
