Has a job you been at ever not paid you for the hard work you did? If so, what happened? Did you take them to court?

I'm sorry everyone for what happened to you. I can relate.

    No, I was always paid by my job, but I would have gone to court if necessary.

    Yeah, I worked one summer for a fledgling landscaping company. The guy who owned it was decent, but didn't know how to manage money and did not know what starting a business entails (neither did I at the time). He was always promising that we would be paid on a certain date, and he would delay it, then delay it again. During 3 months, I got one check. Toward the end of summer, I was gassed from working long days in the heat and decided to quit. He owed me for over a month of work. Kept telling me the check was coming, and then would make up excuses for the delay. I told him I was taking him to small claims court, where not only will they make him pay, they will make him pay 3x damages. Two hours later, he showed up with a check. I put that thing in the bank as quickly as I could.

    A company I was working for just stopped paying us.  After a few weeks the owner sold the business but still owed us back pay.

    We didn't take him to court but we did file complaints with the state labor board.

    I guess they put some pressure on him because he eventually paid us.

    Yes I did a sales job way back years ago I did one week and was supposed to get paid but I never got paid. I landed a job soon after and a whirl wind of things happened  I just let it go. I get paid pretty well now anyway I have a much better job.
