Fast food outlet finally pays disgruntled worker
6:00pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
A FAST-FOOD restaurant worker who was left £170 out of pocket has finally been paid the wages owed to him.
Daniel Johnson, 30, from Cambridge Road, worked at the Burger King shop at Clacton Factory Outlet for three weeks in January, but was forced to leave after his partner Jenny suffered mental health issues.
He contacted the Gazette as he had not been paid after nearly two months and was forced to apply for a crisis loan of £40.
He was on Jobseeker’s Allowance and was caring for his wife while trying to look after his two children, Bella, four, and Ethan, aged 22 months.
Burger King was unable to provide a comment before Mr Johnson’s story appeared in the Gazette, but a spokesman for company said the total balance of £173.32 has now been paid to their former employee.
