so I didn't get payed at work

so I am just not working, friday around 11 am I email my boss, I had no paycheck. I usually get paied thursdays, but the office mang told me friday. So I was like ok...usually the accountant is in by 12.

so 11am rolls around, not a peep from the boss or the accountant, no paycheck. So I was like F*** this and left.

You see, I am a Graphic designer , I don't get paied, I don't work. I am the only one who can put the paper together. Great idea boss, not paying the most imporant employee at a newspaper. Lets see the office manager try to put the paper together in two days. Let alone making 5 ads in one hour.

So when monday comes around, and I still don't have a paycheck, I am off to see EI(Canadian unemployment) because H** to the No, I am not working for free.

anyway the boss emails me that we don't have enough money in the accounts to pay me, they will try their best to pay me. Sorry, not good enough.

I got bills to pay, bills that needed to be payed Friday past, that now have cash pentalities on them

so excuse me boss, I am off to look for new jobs

Thats horrible! I can't believe they wouldn't tell you that before you wasted your time! I'd sue the crap out of them for back pay.

better idea, if the company goes under I will go to the other papers in the area and they can do a nice story on how the paper went under
