If he hasn't paid you--he's not your boss.

QFT

The last three jobs I have left, have been because of my boss/supervisor (or in one case, the corporate a-holes in Denver, not the local management), not because of the actual job itself.

the job "was" with with a 2 way radio place in a coast town called wollongong, this is 2.5 hrs driving from me
A little over $200 a week in diesel just to get there and home .
I still have debts to pay
he has no work
No parts, no credit with Motorola due to unpaid debts
lots of money owed to other companies
no soldering gear

I was expected to repair 12 radios a day
I was there in the workshop for 4 weeks and saw 6 radios in all the time.

this industry looks like being alot better and yes more fun

I'm really glad things worked out for you.

Do you have some place you can call to make him pay you for the time he hasn't?

WOW just WOW that coming from a man who said he worked for a company for weeks if not a month or more on end without pay in the past. Now I could be wrong but didn’t you tell me you did that?

Haha! I know exactly what you are talking about. The Bunn cappuccinos are better. Just wait until you see a Wilshire Curtis Juice Machine.

I still repair coffee and tea machines every now and then, but I used to mess with a whole lot of cappuccinos and juice machines.

Ohhhh, fruck...if ya want to trade worst machine....I have a Ugalini sitting on the bench that I havent got a clue where to get parts for....and Cretors just came out with a propane-fired popcorn machine....they only started making them last Feb and the thing has already been in for warranty service twice. Ya cant even take off the front panel to get at it without completely dis-assembling the gas lines.
