Spanish term or phrase: ...le pone gancho con los lubricantes y el dinero que cuadre.
This is a written complaint by a worker at a plant in the Dominican Republic that makes petroleum-based products. He's complaining about a manager and says, "y cuando quiere botar un supervisor le pone gancho con los lubricantes y el dinero que cuadre."
