@efi lmao with the money he isnt paying me? :<

@efi lol usually if i make a post and after that long no one reacts to it i feel like im being an annoying waste of time when there are worse things going on and i need to shut up.

@root well, whenever I make a post nobody replies, so I guess I'm a huge annoying waste of time all day every day...

@efi i mean it's just my anxiety but that's how i feel i mean.

@root me too, but maybe you're right and I'm just an annoying pest tbqh

@efi ill work on keeping an eye out for your posts more. i usually try to keep an eye out for all my friends' posts and react to them if i can but i usually try to not fave anything sad you post because you told me not to do that and i usually have a hard time figuring out what to say but that's my issue i need to work on.

@root :* <3
remember when I posted a gif of my game? that was fun

@efi yeah!! i love interacting with that stuff, i know how to interact with that! haha :>

work 

@root are any fellow workers on your side?

work 

@lyliawisteria sure, but nothing happens. they just deal with it too, they dont know what to do either, they've called the union countless times, they tell him to change and reprimand him but nothing happens lol it's just a mess forever.

work 

@root the union is you and you fellow workers. maybe you have a list of grievances you'd like to compare with them, and come up with a plan to make demands to your boss?

work 

@lyliawisteria hahhh ugh we tried that a few months ago lmao. oof. maybe someday. someday when i dont have to be a leader in trying to push for this kind of shit. i am not built for it and i dont have the know how or energy lol.

work 

@lyliawisteria hahaha ughh we truly do live in a society dont we.

work 

@root

you can't have a society without a flag. where is the flag of our society? no one knows. :catgirlthinking:

work 

@root ?????? what the fuck!!!!! please report him to your county’s labor board they actually will wreck his shit. i had an employer do the same thing to me and i was paid within a day of them responding to my claim

work 

@bee oh fuck that's good to know. i'll keep that in mind if he doesnt do it on monday i was planning on yelling at him today but it was so busy and shit i was just so broken after seeing me being the only person not being paid so i just left in a rage.

work 

@root yeah they usually have a hotline. it’s also extremely illegal for him to retaliate after reporting him so keep a record of all emails/texts/calls so that if he does retaliate you can sue him for fat stacks.

work 

@bee ahhh awesome that's good to know i figured everything would be on his side since, you know, late stage capitalism and shit.

work 

@root yeah employee law is fairly decent in regards to payroll violations. only helps if you’re a proper legal employee but it’s better than nothing.

work 

@bee ah yeah makes sense. fuck i think he's put off giving me the papers to make me a proper employee instead of a like, contract worker or whatever. he just tells me he needs to give them to me and never fuckin does. that's prolly why.

work 

@root you can absolutely report his ass for that too. he’ll be in hot garbage if you’ve been working w/o a w2 and shit. you won’t get in trouble tho, this sounds 100% like some fraud shit on his end

work 

@bee ahhh rad rad good to know. yeah he loves doing all that and im not sure why. he usually ends up blaming the individual that needed to be given the things that he wanted back signed or whatever lmao. hhhh i really appreciate your help lol im used to just being abused by big corporate, sleazy small shop boss is new to me.

work 

@root i’ll be real with you small business owners in my limited experience are more abusive than the large company i’m working for now. but the county labor board exists to prevent them from abusing that power. if it gets to be too much, he’s required to give you all your money within a certain time window (not sure what it is in ur state) if you quit. you also do not have to give notice of quitting.

work 

@bee ahh fuck that's great info. thanks so much i had no clue i had any power in the situation. im honestly hoping he's just really such a messy bitch he somehow missed it? uh.. thrice?? but idk i should probably stop having any fucking hope or optimism for fuckin anything lmao.

work 

@root no being hopeful is healthy. just don’t trust your bosses. 🤢

work 

@root hi, sorry to butt in, but as a manager, it sounds like this guy is doing super illegal things

You can just quit. He can't make you do anything after you quit, because you stop being an employee; you do not need to find someone else. In fact, since he's not even paying you, the reality is *he's not your employer anymore*. He broke his contract with you, stop working for him

And contact your department of labor about the wages you are owed. Don't put up with this

work 

@ropetopus thanks for that info that makes a lot of sense and i started this thread not realizing i had really any rights in this situation lol so i appreciate you confirming the truth for me :slimeheart:

work 

@root happy to help. You should know also that if you quit because he stopped paying you, it's "constructive dismissal" (legal for 'he actually fired you, without cause'), and you qualify for unemployment while you look for a new job
