Shocked Wayne workers shown the door earlyPosted: Updated:
Instead of clocking in Monday morning, Hoboken Floors employees instead found out they are now unemployed.
Workers were informed last week that the warehouse would shut its doors on November 29. However, lenders refused to help the financially troubled company, prompting an earlier closing.
?I think it's disgusting, and I think that we should get what we're entitled too,? said Gail Lodi, one of the suddenly unemployed workers.
Employees said the shutdown caught them off-guard and raised concerns about insurance and money. The company?s payroll manager said some workers won?t be receiving payment for hours already worked.
?Most people are out at least one week's pay and overtime from the week before,? said Jodi Riley. ?I'm personally out two weeks pay, as are a select group of people who didn't get a check at all."
Some employees are now considering legal action to ensure they are properly compensated and are awaiting further instructions from union representatives.
