If the company can afford to send them on a retreat and an expensive bottle of wine, then they can afford to pay you for your work there. Go to HR and explain the situation. If they don't do anything, go above their head.

In an ideal world, that would be an effective and appropriate response. But in the real world, publicly shaming the company on Facebook would probably get better results. Even if you get fired, the publicity is another jewel in your resume to attract an employer who actually has a moral compass.

...or, at the very least, it would be much more entertaining for the rest of us.

Corporate scumbags. I'm sorry OP

Find the bottle of wine and dump it on those assholes

... or just drink it.

Wasting an $1,800 bottle of wine on an asshole? Heresy!

some people just wanna watch the world burn

Well, give their offices a makeover while they are gone. Wink wink

What a bunch of assholes

Take the wine and quit.

I don't think you quite understand. There is no wine at this point.

I would suggest to go to HR and talk to them about it. If that doesn't work, I would go through pros and cons for working at this company and if you can afford to be without them. That's just a really shitty situation to go through and figure out how to approach HR about this. This sounds similar to a friend of mine and they just ended up quitting and going somewhere else since no one cared.

American Capitalism at its best and brightest.

Capitalism in general. especially considering OP is from Australia.

I wasn't aware that Australia was in America

Hmm, a few bad bosses, let's blame capitalism. You know they're still required by law to pay him, even in a capitalist society, right?

Yea cuz that socialism is working great - right Greece?

Oh, fuck, I'm stupid ._.

happens to everyone haha

At least you know it! Ha ha! XD

Well, now you know where the money they "can't afford" to give you is going

I was gonna say that. They certainly have their priorities straight.
