Ang American talk show host na si Howard Stern naman ang nasasangkot sa kontrobersya dahil sa maling pagtrato nito sa kanyang mga tauhan sa kanyang radio show. Claim ng ilan na much worse daw si Stern kesa kay Ellen DeGeneres.
Kuwento ni Scott Salem, a longtime engineer of the show, created a GoFundMe page para sa kanyang misis na may non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Imbes daw na tumulong si Stern, sinabihan pa niya si Salem na huwag banggitin ang name niya sa crowdfunding page.
Kahit na walang mention ng name ni Stern, nakalikom pa rin ng $73,000 si Salem na hindi ikinatuwa ni Stern. Ang ginawa ni Stern ay pinatanggal niya sa show si Salem after 33 years na nagtrabaho sa kanya.
“This has really bothered me. It’s really sad. His wife ends up dying. Howard doesn’t even go downstairs and offer Scott his condolences. Everyone falls from grace with Howard. Everyone hates him!” sey ng isang employee.
Sey naman ni Steve Grillo, tinatrato raw sila ni Stern na parang mga alipin.
“From 1992 until 1997, I was just working for free still as an ‘intern.’ That’s what my title was. But I was definitely a producer. The amount of responsibilities I had was through the roof. That’s slave labor. I was a slave. You can’t have people work 60 hours a week and not pay them.” (Ruel Mendoza)
