There was a case a few yrs ago on a static caravan site- this guy was getting chiseled on his caravan by the owner, caravan too old, Site fees, buy caravans off owner, all the usual mafia style bollocks. So guy gets in 15 ton 360 an demolished owners house an few statics he was selling plus his car. Armed police were called an he gave himself up.

 

Gov tightened up laws on static site owners after that. Moral is - be careful whom you choose to piss off. Some people are capable of anything, often the ones you would least expect.... K

If the news is to be believed he wasn't paid on time, bank glitch or not he should have been paid on the Friday, he didn't get paid until Monday, lots of us could cope with being paid late, but lots of us couldn't. I'd guess financial stress could drive someone to do things they wouldn't normally do.

In many cases the 'glitch' is the person with the purse strings in head office, failing to do what was promised.

Yep that's exactly what happens. I know for a fact that with a lot of big firms come the end of the month someone pics and chooses who is getting paid and who is getting bumped until maybe next month.

 

Good on the guy, no one got hurt and he certainly made a statement!

I wish I was the judge when he comes up.. max sentence all the way..   we don't have small claims courts for nothing..  the fella is a moron..  .

Pay and be paid. Don't expect a man to go to work then knock him for his money. As seen in the video it will come back to bite you on the arse.

I hope this gets more and more coverage.

The problem, especially in construction, of people getting paid either late or not at all is ridiculous.

 

The problems are normally created by unscrupulous greedy, rich bastards at the top and the shit flows downhill.

 

Anything that can bring about change is a good thing.
