    Some financial bullshit going on here at work. Haven't gotten paid in over two months now... shit's fucked up. I need some money fast or I'm in trouble. They've been telling me it's going to be OK for weeks now, but nothing's happening. They owe me almost 5 grand in salary + reimbursements. In the mean time, rent and bills keep going on.

    What do I do? I feel like I'm getting fucked.

    Hire a lawyer?

    I have never known anyone to work for free for that long.

    Didn't you just break your leg in a mosh pit?

    File a claim with the Labor Board now so that you may get a few cents on the dollar when they go Bankrupt ....... Un-reciprocated loyalty wont pay your creditors or feed your family.... Its time to get the Hell out of Dodge

    I am one loyal dumb-ass, what can I tell you.

    And yes, but I only missed one day for that, first sick day in over a year.

    Labor Board over here has your back for 3 full months after you last got paid, so by the end of month 3, we're definitely going to do that.

    And yeah, I'm very sick of it over here.
