    Yeah, well they didn’t exactly “LAY OFF” all of the workers, they just shut the doors without paying the employees for the hours worked. The laborers are due for 2 weeks worked and the managers (salaried employees) are due for 3 weeks worked. We can’t get answers WHEN or IF we’re getting paid….how can a company just leave all of the employees out to dry like that when they were so loyal to MR. JUAN CARLOS VILA for so many years!?!?!?
