Workers strike back by destroying expensive trucks and bulldozers after employer withholds pay on a construction project. Not smart.

    “it’ll buff out”
    Washington State, and yeah, boss was a royal dbag, according to several news reports. guys getting up at 3 am to be at the worksites by 5, in freezing, rainy weather, collapsing muddy conditions, and had faith in thier foreman that unlike the last job, and the job before that one *this makes three*, that they would be seeing weekly paychecks, instead of having to wait until the project was finished. Fool me once, I say. But for $17+ an hour, they were willing to wait. Until they found out that bossman had been paid by the state/contractor in advance *duh* and then gambled quite a bit of thier paychecks away at several local casinos.

    I don’t understand why employers withhold money like that. These workers probably work paycheck to paycheck. Any bump in their compensation is a big deal to them.

    Could it be that most employers have enough money saved that they can’t relate to their employees? Most likely, this is a contractional thing (withholding money that is). If the contract states that they are allowed to withhold money because of x, y and z (and the employees have signed it knowlingly or not) then unfortunately the employer has that right. They also would have the right to sue the guys who did this to their machines. This seems like this is likely the case. Whoever their manager is, he/she should take the heat for signing such documents (not the machines).

    Sad but true.

    Where was this? I remember my dad tellin me about something like this happened around the Chicago area. One of the contractor's employees just lost it and went berzerk with an excavator on all of the equipment that was at the site, then dumped the excavator in a pond.

    Yea seeing close to a million dollars worth of destroyed heavy equipment just doesn’t have that zing does it….. no wonder allot of the people on here don’t like you.
