Equal Pay For Equal Work
Labor Day on the first day of September 1st reminds me how I have worked in Du Page County and in the Village of Lombard before September 2, 1993, when I was employed by Carmen Alonso Kenny &Associates as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator for Du Page County Arbitration Center for Workers’ Compensation, Traffic Court at 421 North County Farm Road and the 18thJudicial Circuit Court at 505 North County Farm Road in the City of Wheaton.I also worked at the old courthouse in Geneva, and the new courthouse in St. Charles for the Kane County Judicial Center, including Batavia.Plus, I was assigned interpreting and translation in Elgin and Joliet in Will County; as well as court-appointed legal interpreting in Waukegan, Lake County, and in Woodstock, McHenry County, and beyond to LaSalle County, and DeKalb, in Illinois.For more than twenty (20) years, I have been a commissioned Illinois Notary Public for Cook County first, then for Du Page County by the Illinois Secretary of State and the County Clerk’s Office.
While reading the Chicago Tribune, I found out that Interlate Systems Inc. and Pan Blanco in Elgin, Aurora, and Batavia, owned by Brad White, a former College of Du Page employee who was hiringa Certified Interpreter and Translator in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.I was interviewed and hired as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator by Jacquie Guiter and Rene Hofsteder at the Interlate Systems Inc. office which was located in Elgin Downtown, along Route 30, not far from the Elgin Police Station.
Before and after I got married to Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin, I was working full-time, free-lance, and part-time on different jobs, occupations, and business sectors in the City of Chicago, Cook County, and outlaying suburbs of Du Page County, Kane County, Lake County, Will County, McHenry County, LaSalle County, Grundy County, DeKalb, and at my home business office.
In addition, I was working for Berlitz Schools at 2 North LaSalle Street in the City of Chicago with Milanka who was the Berlitz Method Trainer, Josepha and June, the receptionist.Then, I was assigned by Berlitz to teach for Beth, the Director, upon assignments from Sally at the Water Tower Place across from the John Hancock Center.Afterwards, Beth moved the Berlitz office to Hinsdale and later opened another Berlitz school in Oak Brook, Du Page County, Illinois USA.Beth at Berlitz assigned me to teach Berlitz Junior at the Butler Middle School on York Road, across from the Oak Brook Country Club and also at Brook Forest Elementary School, along 31stStreet in Du Page County, Illinois USA.
After my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung purchased the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, I was driving to and from work upon assignment for Certified Legal Interpreting and Translation, Teaching, Cross-Cultural Training, Consulting Language Social Media jobs for clients, Marketing Localization for AIM Translations managed by Karen in Bloomingdale, and other language work for Business Access Translation managed by Rosa Ridderbusch in Zurich, Illinois.
While I was working all day during mornings, afternoon, and evenings, Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin and my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung, allowed intruders to roam, ransack, steal, and scatter business documents, a community certificate from the Chinese American Service League, personal belongings, an 18 Karat Gold Bracelet which has been heirloom jewelry that my Grandmother and family had given to me, fashion clothing, intimate apparel, and miscellaneous business and teaching resources which have been stolen and removed from my personal use by the Lombard Police Department and the Illinois Court Houses in Du Page County, Cook County, and other places in the Chicagoland area.I have even lost my Minolta Camera Flash, JVC Digital Film Cassettes, and other teaching media from my work environment after I moved to the Village of Lombard on September 2, 1993.
I have also lost two (2) Tennis Rackets and Tennis Balls, a Tachikara Volleyball, Golfsmith Putting Golf Club, Golf Shoes, Golf Balls, and many other valuables which have been stolen from my Lombard home, allowed by the Lombard Police Department in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.
In 1992, my Mother Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos and my youngest brother Robert S. Hung with his boyfriend Paul Rathe purchased a Lombard home with homeowners’ credit and a cash down deposit of $10,000 given by my Father Mr. Roberto Hung from his IRA retirement funds.Then, they moved to the Lilac Town with a Pomeranian dog near Sunset Knolls Park District on Finley Road, Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Elizabeth Street, and Lilacia Park near Main Street in the Village of Lombard, Du Page County, Illinois USA.Randy Stob is the Lombard realtor who sold my brother Robert the real estate property in Du Page County and deliberately set out to bring the rest of the family of Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, his Daughter, and Husband to buy a Lombard home in Du Page County, Illinois.
When Paul Rathe, a young urban gay who lived on Roscoe Street near Halsted Street, Boys Town and Lakeview in Chicago, convinced my youngest brother and mother to buy a Lombard home and move to the western suburbs in Du Page County during 1992, he did not tell them that buying Lombard real estate would cause chronic health and medical problems for them, long-term disease, psychiatric problems, violence against women, assault, physical abuse, biomedical and bio-sexual transgendered studies, hospitalizations, traumatic brain injuries, head concussions, tragedy, family death, and abuse of human rights in housing under the law in York Township, Illinois, USA.
Paul Rathe introduced my brother and mother to Baird & Warner realtor Paulette Weininger who found a Lombard home for them at 342 West Harrison Street near Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Elizabeth Street, Finley Road and Main Street close to Walgreens, near the Du Page County Crisis Unit, a Medical Group Practice located at 440 South Finley Road and Washington Blvd. in the Village of Lombard, Illinois 60148 USA.Linda Schuster who lived in Westmont was the girlfriend of Paul Rathe who referred my brother and mother to buy a house in Village of Lombard, also known as Lilac Town for the annual Lilac Parade celebration near Main Street in Spring time.
Randy Stob, the Lombard realtor who sold them the real estate property at 342 West Harrison Street near Elizabeth Street and Finley Road, began to encourage my brother Robert S. Hung and my Mother to bring other people in the family, to include her Daughter with her father and husband to buy Lombard real estate property in Du Page County, Illinois USA.
Since my Mother and Brother purchased Lombard real estate property from the same Lombard realtor, I have been kidnapped four (4) times during the course of employment and from my Lombard home in District 5, York Township, Du Page County,upon return from workingby friends of the Lombard realtor and his associates in the Du Page Realtors Association in Illinois USA.

Wittler’s retired Christian missionary parents, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin who were travelling in the Chicago area and the United States on furlough from Istanbul, Turkey, in the Middle East.
In addition, my Mother’s youngest sister, Mrs. Xiomara Fong Ramos de Zayas from Santiago de Cuba, was invited to visit the Village of Lombard for six (6) months to stay with her oldest sister whom she had not seen in more than twenty (20) years—our family had left Cuba during the Catholic Freedom Flights and arrived in Miami, Florida on July 19, 1971.My parents, Mr. Roberto Hung and Mother Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, chose to relocate to Chicago, Illinois sponsored by Catholic Charities.
After my Mother’s sister, Aunt Xiomara Fong Ramos de Zayas, visited the Village of Lombard in 1994, I was kidnapped after I completed an interpreting assignment for Interlate Systems Inc. in Aurora, Kane County, Illinois USA.I was working as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator, also as commissioned Illinois Notary Public for more than twenty (20) years, working with Action Translation Bureau managed by Joseph Raudonis in Palos Heights, Carmen Kenny & Associates in Arlington Heights, Interlate Systems Inc. in Elgin and Batavia, Kane County, and other translation agencies affiliated to the Chicago Area Translators Association (CHICATA) and the American Translators Association (ATA) under the aegis of the Federation of International Translators (FIT).
