Boss Withholds Pay, Treats Secretary like Animal
Every Friday my boss would have me write down what hours I’d work that week, then he’d calculate how much money to withhold for taxes and social security. He’d start making small talk while still holding the check in his hand. He moved it around and around but it was always out of reach. He’d hold it up and I’d have to jump for it like a trained animal! Then he’d fold it and put it in his pocket. At five he’d say “I have a meeting, I have to go,” and leave before I could ask for my check. When I asked for it on Monday, he’d act like it was an accident and say “it’s still in my pocket and I didn’t wear the same suit today.” I never got it before Wednesday. When he fired me it took me three weeks to get my last check.
