A Georgia man said his former employer owed him a pretty penny — $915 (¥100,000) to be exact, after he left his job in November. But Andreas Flaten said he was shocked to see his final payment: 90,000 oil- or grease-covered pennies, at the end of his driveway, news outlets reported. On top was an envelope with Flaten’s final pay stub and a parting message that used explicit language. “This is a childish thing to do,” Flaten said. Flaten said he left his job at Peachtree City’s A OK Walker Autoworks in November. He said he was owed the final check and had difficulty getting it, even turning to the Georgia Department of Labor to receive help. In mid-March, Flaten said he and his girlfriend were leaving his house when they saw the pile at the end of his driveway. The pennies were covered with some sort of oily substance. Now his nightly routine consists of cleaning the pennies so he can cash them in. It took him about an hour and a half to clean off several hundred, he said. Flaten’s girlfriend said she hopes her boyfriend’s story sheds light on how people “are treated so poorly by their employers.” (AP) This article was provided by The Japan Times Alpha.
