Topic: RE: WORK AND NO PAY...UPDATE!!
Well, it has not gotten better, I feel that we are just hitting walls everywhere I turn. I can't sleep, don't really want to eat. I can pick at things, and eat a few bites here and there, or at least 1 maybe 2 shakes per day this week. I am so depressed over this situation, it's just not fair. We don't have any family to turn to for financial support. I had a friend offer to buy my gas earlier in the week just so I could get to work, it's that bad. Now I have $5 to our name, and do not get paid for another 2 weeks. The Better Business Bureau can only help us if we were the customer paying the company, but it's for wages not paid, so they can't help. Wage and Labor Laws are for making sure you are getting paid the min. wage requirement in your state....pretty much we are left with finding a pro-bono attorney that is willing to help us and take this on. I will be looking for that tomorrow on my day off. We have applied for food stamps, (humbling), and more documentation was needed, and of course the state never sees urgency, so it's time in processing, and we need desperately need groceries. UGH....I just don't know what to do, and I feel alone in all this, so I am reaching out to my fellow members....I hope you don't mind! I couldn't sleep this morning, so I am up talking to you all. I feel like I need to make a sign, and drive 2hrs away somewhere, where no one knows me, and stand on a street corner to find some $ somehow. I mean really, this is ridiculous. We used to bring in over 6 figures up until 2008 econonmy downfall, and now I can't even rub 2 pennies together because a company has decided to not pay my husband his wages, they owe us $3200.00. We have liquidated all our assets over the past 4 years, and we are just finally down to bare necessities. My son has some schooling that he needs to do online, and now I can't afford to buy the credits needed. I just feel like a failure as a mom, and it's really hard. I don't know any of you personally on this website at all, but I am reaching out to you all to see if you would be interested in helping me in some small way. Anything would be helpful at this point, I am just at a loss right now. I have a pay pal account, but I am not sure if I can post out the email address that is connected to it. This may not be appropriate on the website, and I realize that, it's just out of desperation. I feel like a ticking time clock and the alarm is going to go off at any point, we were already check to check, and with not getting paid for a month, we are going backwards so fast. I need a miracle!!
