I was employed by US Protection, a Security Officer company. In other words, they pay armed guards $11-$12/hour and unarmed guards $8-$9 per hour, but bill clients $30, $40, even $50 per hour for every hour a guard works (the company keeps the difference). The company's practice is that armed officers (I was one of those) are required to pay for all of the services of the company doing business (to include, but not limited to): the officer buys the weapon carried, specialized ammunition for that weapon, officer pays for gas to drive all over the city, officer works odd hours, officer accepts low pay per hour and earns only around 30 hours per week spread out over 5-6 days where it is impossible to earn a living wage, the officer buys the uniforms worn (issued in a wadded-up ball at orientation, but required to be returned dry cleaned to get paid payroll -
they have officers sign a lot of boilerplate documents (just a formality but not enforced, WHICH IS A LIE), if less than 15-30 days of notice given the company reduces the officer's already low pay to minimum wage and they get by with it, charge the officer for fingerprints, charge the officer for background checks and the state security license, and many other things. Now, they have let me know that I may not collect any pay at all even though an entire week of pay is due. These people treat the guards and front-line supervisors like dogs. It is a share-cropper mentality where the guards get charged for everything, get low pay, get pushed around, and then the guard is always wrong and not paid properly (service-fee ridden to death). Based upon their work practices, this looks to be illegal, immoral, and unethical and they should close their doors. I would have returned the shirts to get my money back (their doors are always double locked - they must really be scared of their former employees) after a supervisor (Trent Hall) came to my worksite and confiscated my work keys, office entrance fob and state license (which I paid for) but gave no receipt. They are jerks and the state and feds should do something about this.
