Government Misses Payday For 1,600 Teens Working Summer Stimulus Program Jobs

Government Misses Payday For 1,600 Teens Working Summer Stimulus Program Jobs
July 26, 2009 by Gateway Pundit

About 16 hundred St. Louis teens got summer jobs, thanks to the federal stimulus package, but the federal government missed payday. Dozens of the kids did not get their paychecks when they were supposed to. But finally pay day came a little late.

“It’s a government program and it shouldn’t be like this,” says Henderson. “It really shouldn’t.”

Around 11, the office did begin handing out paychecks, but there was hardly room to move inside. And Breaunna’s paycheck had an error in it.

“They didn’t even give her the full amount,” says Henderson. “I gotta go back in there, they’re missing over 200 dollars off her check right now. Her last check was $600 this one is $331.”
