I’m owed $2,300. I’ve called the employer many times. He never answers the phone. Sometimes he answers by mistake, he says “oh ok, I’m going to pay you next time, next week, come over next week”, but it never happens. I’ve driven out to his house like nine times, I never find him. I send him text messages. No response. The last time I spoke to him I asked him to pay or I’ll go to the Minister of Labour, he said, do whatever you want.
I don’t think it’s fair. You work hard, like an animal, the employer is supposed to pay. The government has got to deal with these problems faster. The government has to do something better for workers, we need stronger rights.
