I started doing this job quite a few years back. It was a pretty good job then, but over the years it has gradually gotten worse for its employees. We the contractors who do the work for Safeguard Properties, have to practically beg to get our paychecks every week. We have earned quite a bit of money that we have still not been paid for, this has been going on for about almost 3 years.
Each year getting worse by the day. They do not return your emails or phone calls when you ask to speak to people in accounting, they make you speak to the vending department, and regardless of who you talk to, nothing ever gets done, and this company is never held accountable for their actions. We are not the only people not getting our hard earned money, nobody should have to live this way.
All we the contractors want from Safeguard is the money that they owe us, nothing more, nothing less. They see fit to change the rules all the time, leaving us out of the loop on their new policies therefore it halts our paychecks, because they are making them up as they go along. They have a different staff and management every other week, and nobody seems to know what its going on.
My family and I are one step away from the poor house and Safeguard is my only source of income because at my age, I cant find much else. All in all I just want my hard earned money. Its not right for them to keep this from us, who go out and do this very hard work. The banks and Safeguard seem to be above the law and do not care that alot of its employees are having their utilities cut off, have no food to eat, not being able to have Christmas, not getting checks when they are supposedly sent out, always charging people back for work orders, and the state of Ohio seems to be able to do as it pleases.
If you work for a company you should get paid, simple as that! Safeguard is far too busy lining their own pockets, lying to their workers about the checks being mailed out, and less concerned about doing what is right as a company.
