The question, i plow snow for a large company who said at the start of our relationship "if your on site your getting paid". well one night the owner calls us in and we get there and no snow on the ground, well we have to wait 4.5 hrs before we get enough snow to plow. when we arrived the foreman says " oh dont worry guys your getting paid to sit and wait. im paying my guys to sit and wait and burn fuel and be on site so i think its fair that i get paid even though we arnt working,the owner called me after all and said to come in so its his call not mine. so i get my check in the mail and sure enough we didnt get paid for the 4.5 hours and he thinks he he doesn't owe it to me either. i said to him "well your foreman said twice we are getting paid to wait because you told us to come in" and now the foreman doesn't recall. now i can see if i maid the call to send the crews in before the owner told me to come in, then i would not expect payment. but when he maid the call i expect to get paid. im not afraid to drop this guy like a hot rock and tell him keep the cash but dont call again. i dont work for a$$ holes who dont pay me ( the checks are never on time either, and they are always 1/2 of what they should be so then you have to wait another 2 weeks to get paid in full) but i always get paid in the end. now its only a matter of $400.00 bucks (only one truck didn't get paid for) but its my 400 bucks he ows me. what do you guys think, should i get paid? or since my trucks didn't plow for 4.5 hrs he doesn't owe it to me. the comment... for those that are tracking my post's, do you really have nothing better to do when you come on this site then to follow what some dumb kid that knows darn near nothing is saying? what is it you want to know? my pricing? what jobs i have lined up? what i say about so and so? let me know and i will tell you because this shat is starting to get on my nerves when you two keep tabs on what im up to. try to add some help full info to the sit once in awhile, that would be a better use of your time now wouldn't it?
