Yellow head

Will I Be Paid?

I got a phone call from a friend who works at the care home I've just left. She told me that I really should have waited a couple of days until my wages had gone into the bank, before leaving. There's a strong risk now that they'll not pay for the shifts I've worked this month. This has happened before, apparently, to people who've been fired or just left.

I feel very foolish, as I should have realised this, but I let my anger get the better of me. It's hard to believe that people can behave this way. How do they justify not paying someone the wages that they've earned?
