PENSACOLA – A group of about 200 local workers say they’ve been fired.
The clean-up crews were working for Pital Staffing. Some of the employees gathered on the corner of Myrick and Garden Streets in Pensacola to express their frustration.
The workers claim they have not been getting paid for weeks of service. One of the laid-off employees who wants to remain anonymous says they were promised jobs only to find out today that their contacts have been terminated.
“After you’d worked them all week in the hot sun for 13-14 hour days and then you spring this on them? You know thats not good. You know i feel like if you keep your word…You keep your word.”
A witness says the workers were escorted off the property by police Friday.
