    I voted I would go to work like always... If it became a running pattern or they never attempted to catch up and pay me, or paid their executive staff while not paying me things would go different.

    But at first, I would continue to work for them hoping for the best outcome.

    Yea, see we do agree from time to time. :)

    Things for me are tough right now.. My ex partner isn't playing nice and I think the only outcome for me is to see the house I have put so much work into go into foreclosure...

    It's the worse case thing to happen, but even if it does I am better in my walk now so I am ok with it if it happens..

    My wife takes my check every week and gives me a couple of dollars out of it for coke money.

    I dont know if she'd want me to quit or keep working, but when she gets back from the bank I will ask her.

    No, ex gay partner... Either go to my blog or look up the Ray Blotz(sp) thread and you will see that I am just coming out of an eight year gay relationship and have turned my life over to the Lord...

    Is it a choice, but in the arguements over my 20+ years living the gay lifestyle, no one could have told me otherwise... it was only through the Holy Spirit and loving words/actions from my Pastor that I finally am able to win the battles..

    Fussing at people telling them it isn't a choice when they believe it is won't get anyone saved.. it was tried on me for years.

    Loving the people in their gay lifestyle without condoning it is the REAL way to win the hearts and minds of them.

    Here's what our company did in a similar sitution. In effect, management put their own money into the company so that there would be cash for payroll.

    Some years ago, our company (about 60 employees at the time) was in some financial trouble with a cash crunch. There was light at the end of the tunnel, but for the immediate future -- there was the tunnel.

    All employees were offered (management encouraged) the opportunity to purchase additional stock in the company in order to raise additional capital to get us through this period [it was an employee owned company]. For those in management, it was a chance to put their money where their mouth was regarding the company's future. At the end of the day, the company raised several hundred thousand & those who invested in the company received additional stock -- very much a win-win situation.

    I voted that I would still go. How can they possibly eventually pay if their employees don't show up?

    My hubby ran a business a bunch of years ago and things got tight. He told everyone that they'd not be able to meet payroll in the future so he was letting everyone go. They all decided to stay on and continue working because it's not like they would find another job immediately anyway. A month later, my hubby sold the business and gave everyone not only the back pay but doubled it to thank them for staying during a rough time then gave them an additional sum as a bonus. I thought he did a great thing there. :)

    As a Pastor, I would go... and then seek guidance from God... to see if I should start circulating my profile throughout our state convention....

    I am called to care for my family before I care for others...

    I would go to work, but I would also use my non-work time to look for another job.

    I'd have to know some variables. First, is this future paycheck for future hours or am I working now the hours that would go on the next paycheck? Two, what has been communicated? If the company doesn't even care to communicate with me, that says tons. I'd probably still go to work, but I'd be searching like crazy for a new job. If the company will not pay me for the work I'm doing now, them having me come in is a waste of money anyway. They should keep me home until they can pay me. Equity demands that I be given consideration since employment is a contractural agreement. Lots of other factors weigh in.
