    the beginning of the end. keylon better implement the driver program he's offering the dockworkers, so they can bail him out. hopefully they drive better than they can load trucks. :TR10driving03:

    I've been at some places that went under- at the end it sucked, a lot of guys lost weeks of wages.Several got left out on the road ......
    I am not sure where we are at, and do not wish to be hasty to judge......but the next quarterly report will tell a lot......

    We were not going to "lose" anything, just delay, and my State people are still checking into the legality of waiting that long to issue paychecks.

    What is so illegal about it? Companies can establish any pay period they wish. I've been paid weekly,bi-weekly,on the 1st and 15th, and many,MANY years ago, when I managed retail, once a month. You just have to get employees who are willing to wait that long. Besides, I think had enough meant in case CK can't pull this thing off and they go belly-up you will lose everything they owe you.

    Remember if you are going to quit, take any and all personal and vacation time before hand. Too many times I have heard about them not giving back what was earned.

    Depends on your State. Some do not have to, while my State you will get twice pay and then the company will get fined the same amount. Definitively something not to screw with here
