I don't work for anyone, but I've been married to my husband

I don't work for anyone, but I've been married to my husband for 30 years. We have 2 boys. My husbands family is a large caucasian catholic family. My husband and I are co owners of a 6 person corporation. Though us 3 wives are not shareholders of the corporation, the other 2 wives seem to have a lot of influence on what goes on in the corporation. I was told from the beginning, the wives don't get involved, so I respected that and never disobeyed the corporation rules, however, through the years, I've noticed how influential these wives actually are. When I would ask my 2 brother in laws questions about the corporation, they always seemed to ignore me. My 2 sister in laws never gave me the time of day. My husband and I are 10+ years younger than the 2 other co-owners of corporation. Through the years, I've grown to know a tremendous amount of information about the corporation (some good, but mostly not so good). It seems like the other 2 co-owners and their wives have prospered much more than us. We have signed for the same loans that bought properties and other farm machinery needed, amongst other items. These properties and everything is to be evenly split 33.3%. It all started 5 years ago when I started asking many question of the corporation, and thats when everyone turned against me in a terrible way. All i wanted was to create a family trust and put our home in the trust, but we couldn't because we didn't own it, the corporation did. And thats how it all started. My 2 brother in laws and their wives, my husbands 3 sisters have turned against me also. Overtime I try to get everyone together to talk things out, they totally ignore me. One day I was talking to my husbands sister and she told me that her brother (one of our co- owners of the corporation) said that I think I'm something to think I can ask all these questions. It's none of my business about what the corporation does. AND he refers me to the "Mexican Queen" (I am of Mexican decent). Even though the properties are under us 6 individuals and are deeded as tenants in common, my husband and I have no say so, but it seems to me they have it more for me because I ask so many questions and demand answers. At one recent meeting with these 2 other co-owner brother in laws. The one that refers to me as the "Mexican Queen" told me, "At the end, it's going to be between me and you Mexican Queen"!! Now I'm really starting to think that all this unfairness from the start of my marriage to now, is a classic case of discrimination. I've taken a lot of injustice from these other corporation owners and would really like to exploit them with a discrimination case against them. I have so much more evidence of the unfairness to me, but it's so obvious that they think I'm beneath them to this day. Please tell me if I have a chance to file a discrimination case against them and win. I've had all the unfairness I can stand. It's ruining my husband and my marriage. All my husbands life with his brothers, growing up with them and working with them, they have always treated my husband with no respect. All my husband has wanted from his brothers is acceptance and respect. Never has been that way.

I have some questions regarding employment laws in Arizona.

I have some questions regarding employment laws in Arizona. I work for a call center and have been with them for almost 5 years. Recently they merged with another company and now we are being forced to sign a arbitration agreement or else we'll be fired. When co-workers and I raised concerns to our supervisor, she outright lied by telling us, "It just means you have to go to arbitration first and then you can sue in court". Is this totally legal? One co-worker mentioned signing it and if a situation were to arise where you would need to sue the company, you would claim you were forced to sign it under duress. Would that work? The agreement does state that you weren't under duress when signing. What should I do?There was a separate situation where my supervisor directed me and others to perform a work function after clocking out. Is it very very minor and quick, however it is still working off the clock. When I voiced my concern about "working off the clock", my supervisor threatened to go back and deduct any paid minutes of break time that were over the allotted amount. Is that legal?Also, can overtime be mandatory?Thank you for your help.
