What a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four flushing, low life, snake licking, dirt eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood sucking, dog kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat ass, bug eyed, stiff legged, spotty lipped, worm headed sack of monkey shit!
Revenge plan: 1. Set up office secret Santa. 2. Rig it so you get your boss. 3. Shit in a box. 4. Gift wrap said box. 5. Attach note that says 'made me think of you!' 6. Enjoy!
That's illegal. Go to the next higher up, or payroll department. Failing that, file a complaint with the appropriate government agency
#17 - Not all companies are set for Friday payroll. My company does semi-monthly pay checks: the 15th and the last day of the month. Depending on the company OP works for, it may be a small business where the manager is the owner, thus he/she would be able to choose a different day to pay the employees. If the company OP works for DOES have a payroll/HR department, he should definitely contact them to address the issue, as the manager should not be able to overrule the standard HR payroll system. It really does suck, and hopefully OP will get paid on time.
In Australia, if payday is a certain day (in this case Friday, most likely), and a public holiday falls on that day, the company is obligated to pay it BEFORE the normal payday. Of course smaller companies get away with not doing this, but it is generally the law. On the downside, its the 24th of December, one shouldnt be relying on a pay due on the 25th (I'm only guessing) to buy Christmas presents. There's leaving things to the last minute, and LEAVING THINGS TO THE LAST MINUTE. On the upside, they get 2 pays within 7 (or 14) days of each other. The next payday doesnt come in late just because this one did (unless its paid weekly, then NYD will probably cop the same thing).
Firstly, I work at maccas in Australia, if payroll is a public holiday, it gets put through later, so we don't get paid until after. Also, it takes a while for some fml's to be posted, so this one probably wasn't posted today. Or OP could've used a credit card to get the presents and now isn't getting paid to pay off the credit card and has to return said gifts (which you can't fit to say in the post, although I do doubt that possibility)
Paycheck to paycheck sucked. I got out of it by putting $20 a week away in a saving account. Discipline yourself and pretend like it's a bill. These days I can miss three months of work before running out of cash. But, it took me over a year to build up that much.
