They withheld my salary for two years and then they give me about $300,000 lump sum, but that ain’t no compensation, cause dat ain’t even de amount of my two years pay.”Lewis remembered waking up on the morning of December 18, 2000 and recalled the horror of that terrible day.“De whole place was on fire, real fire.
