The 5 of us framers hadn’t been paid in 3 weeks and the boss promised that with the Ghostbusters 37th anniversary 1984 2021 thank you for the memories signatures shirt from the builder we would all get paid. But little did he know all of the bill collectors were showing up at the job looking for him, so we knew there would be no money left for us. The guys on my crew were the sort you don’t cross, they were actually talking about dragging him out in the woods and shooting him. So I confronted him about the money and the fact that I knew about all of the people he promised money to. He basically told me to pound sand, that if I didn’t like it, leave. Well I wasn’t going without my back pay so I talked to the builder that night. Promised him we would stay and finish the house (another few days of work) if he promised to pay the last draft in cash, with us present. He agreed.
