Skip to comments.Air America: Missing Payrolls?

Brian Maloney, who broke the Air America scandal in the blogosphere over a week ago while the Exempt Media still mostly ignores it, now hears whispers from inside the netlet that employees worry about the company missing its payroll obligations. A delay in posting direct-deposit pay for their final July paychecks apparently has Air America employees buzzing, although anonymously:
It's bad enough the company is generating fresh bad publicity almost daily, over the diverted $875,000 in taxpayer funds intended for a Bronx-based community service organization.
Now, to make matters worse, an internal memo obtained by the Radio Equalizer indicates Air America Radio employees faced late paychecks just over a week ago.
They were apparently stunned to receive a last-minute notice sent at 5:09pm Thursday, July 28th, indicating direct deposits would not be made Friday, as expected.
Written by company Vice President/Finance Sinohe Terrero (this article confims Terrero's corporate role), it inferred the payroll processing company was to blame:
We have been advised by ADP that Direct Deposit will probably not post until Monday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cost (sic). If you have any questions please feel free to call me.

From each according to their ability (and all that).
Anything other than that standard would be hypocritical.
So we have the Bourgeois screwing the Proletariat over at AA? Time for a revolution, if you ask me.
"Isn't ADP owned by Frank Lautenberg? Surely he wouldn't let Air America employees encounter such troubled waters?"
: also from Captain's Quarters
Amazing how they blame a company in which it's job is to perform such functions (and has, successfully, for a long time).
If I was Lautenberg (or whoever owns ADP) I would be fuming mad that my company was slandered like this.
McAsshat could lead the charge in the name of "bipartisanship"!
They were informed of this by ADP because either the payroll wasn't completed on time or there weren't funds in the account to cover it.
The notice was given at 5:09 p.m. Thursday. Since they would have had one more day of that week to clear up any problems, it looks like your second reason is the most likely of the two.
What happened? Did Air America run out of Children's Charities to rob????
LOL..... Air Dirty Laundry Inc !
>>>They were informed of this by ADP because either the payroll wasn't completed on time or there weren't funds in the account to cover it.
Bingo. We may be witnessing the beginning of the end of Air scAm.erica
For the money to be transferred to the appropriate accounts, the payrool would have to have been completed by Wed eve at the latest.
I worked for a company that was in trouble and they simply didn't make those payments understanding that it would take the government months to catch it.
Not paying those taxes is a felony.
