Why is the worker in Devyani Khobragade case being unfairly villainised?

As an American citizen I find it deplorable that the worker, Mrs Richard, has been cast as a criminal for merely demanding the wages due her by US law. #Employment #USA #Labour laws #Devyani Khobragade #Mathew Brinkley #wage laws #unfair treatment
