the employer gets an attitude about you, he orders you off his property. He refuses to give you justly due wages. He seizes your entire tool and personal property inside the van.
He refuses to negotiate during phone conversations or in person visits to his office.
The state labor office wont get involved. The sherrif wont do a thing.
The Marshal's office is no use.
The attorney you were referred to wont even return your phone calls.
It gets worse, but I dont want this to be a long post.
Now ... what would you do?
