My company was bought a while back by a larger company from Dallas. The Dallas folks have done their best to wreck HR, accounting, and employee morale. They have recently been forcing us to use a new time accounting software program that is buggier than a Louisiana swamp in July. The last pay cycle, they managed to screw up direct deposit, so everyone in the company got paper checks. Inconvenient, but at least we got paid.
Today is payday. We were all supposed to get electronic direct deposit restored. Well, not only did they not depost my pay in my account, they lost my pay entirely! That’s right, their %^&*!@ software kicked me and a few other people out of the system, so I won’t get paid on time. I might get a paper check tomorrow, maybe. DAMMIT! I have rent due tomorrow, not to mention other bills. I also have only a few bucks left in my checking account, so I am screwed until I get paid. This would happen just as looking for another job looks iffy, thanks to the uncertain employment climate.
So they’re planning to work me and not pay me. What’s next, selling me down South?
