Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"I was hired by cardinal electric power on Friday 6/9/17 at rate of $30 per hour. I started on Monday 6/12/17. First pay was for 34.5 hours and was direct deposited on 6/21/2017 . It seemed short so i asked to get paystub. Owner (raja) emailed me paystub on 6/23/17 and it was only for $20 per hour. I questioned it and Raja told me thats all he could afford if i didnt like it i could quit. I kept working . Then on or about 8/15/17 i requested a raise to $30 . He agreed and made it effective SAt 8/26. I worked Sat and Sun. Pay period ended. I received check on 8/30 and it was correct. I workeduntil 9/1/17 and was laid off for lack of work. Upon receiving my check on 9/13 it was for 40.5 hours and i WAS not paid $30 as agreed. Once again he just decided to change it to $20.
from my first and last week of work Raja SamBandHam owes me $745.00
Jim Myers
attached are 3 paystuibs. the initial paystuib from 6/22 showing me only making $20 per hour. Then the 8-30 paystub which is the one that he raised me back up to $30 on and we worked sat and sunday at which time the payperiod ended. then the 9-13 paystub which was after i was let go on 9-8-2017. as seen in this last paystub, he lowered my wage back to $20 per hour aftert i worked my last week. he seems to think its ok to bait and switch on people and ive spent hours on the phone and wage and labor will not go after him for this. they said its a civil matter. so i present it to the community to help resolve. He will not respond nor answer my calls/texts."

Additional Communication Between Claimant and Cardinal Electric Power Hide
  • Apr 16, 2018, Claiming party added:
  • I was hired at a rate of $30 per hour and was told by you after receiving my first check that 20$ was all you could afford at the time so I agreed from that point forward to work corn $20 but u still owe me for the first week at $30 . And you owe me for the last week when, after raising me up to $30 you decided to drop my pay down to $20 again without my knowledge and retroactively; which isn’t right to do to people .

  • Apr 24, 2021, Claiming party added:
  • I was hired at a rate of $30.00 per hour . You only decided to pay me $20 per hour after the fact and without informing me. Then after you raised me up to $30 later you once again decided to just drop me back down to $20 without letting me know .
