Okay....so I need some advice from people who actually have jobs.
Now as some you may know, I work at the my schools newspaper as the comic artist, and I love my job. It's fun and I get to draw for money.
.....well I USED to draw for money.
Since December I haven't been paid.
Well that's not entirely accurate. I was paid for January, but I think that was just because I kept pushing my higher up about the fact I hadn't been paid for December or January at that point.
But for December, February, and March I haven't been paid. In total I have not been paid about 190 dollars.
I really don't know what to do. I have texted my higher up, emailed him, gone to actual HQ. And his response is always that he's working on it and it will be fixed.
I'm running out of patience here.
If I was relying on this money, I'd have quit months ago, but it was just supposed to be for fun and nothing big. But this whole debacle is really starting to sap my energy to draw these comics. They aren't hard to do, but it's getting troublesome that I actually take time out of my day to draw these out.
At this point my mom is saying if I don't get paid, that I switch over to volunteer hours.
