Then I did have savings and it kept us going, but Iâ??ve exhausted our savings."Pam Thomas is the former Marketing Director for the company.She says, "most of the time I had to ask for my check and if I didnâ??t get a check I go to Rita (Cantwell) and say, Whereâ??s my check? She would say you didnâ??t ask for it. And Iâ??d say I didnâ??t realize I needed to ask for a paycheckâ?¦so I knew the end was coming because I canâ??t work for free and leaving with money on the table was hard, but I knew if I would keep my sanity Iâ??d need another job."Tom Boyd, attorney for the company says if employees are having problems getting paid, they are to contact the company. He says theyâ??re trying to get things resolved."
