My husband and I are having a problem getting his pay from

Customer Question

My husband and I are having a problem getting his pay from his employer the Washington Post. He received a partial payment in May and have not received any payment since that time. He has been a carrier for the Post for over 20 years and have won numerous awards for his work ethics and dedication. We have both been trying to contact supervisors at the Post to try to get this resolved, but to no avail. No one will return any calls or requests for why he is not being paid. Our family is in dire straits because of this. Our bills are not being paid, we cannot afford to get food and we need to have our prescriptions filled. I am not currently working and only receive a limited income which does not cover our expenses. We depend on his salary to make ends meet. We are both stressed out over this and need some assistance.
