What was the deal actually?

Are they paying for the hotel room?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No not paying for motel toom this out of my pocket
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The deal was they would pay me from time I leave home till I get back it was estimated ar a 10 hour day
Expert:  Debra replied 10 months ago.

You are correct and they owe you the money. You are doing a specific job for them and had a clear agreement.

They cannot have it both ways. If they wanted to pay for you to stay in Stratford they should have made that agreement and should be reimbursing you for the hotel and food costs.

So they do owe you the money pursuant to the agreement. They are in fact ahead because you are by far more rested.

Does that help as a starting point?
