Unpaid digger driver smashes up Travel Lodge. GoFundMe page to support him now trending.
A Liverpool Travel Lodge received an unwelcome guest yesterday in the form of a mini digger and upset driver. The chap hadn’t been paid for his work and obviously felt frustrated and ripped off.
This non payment of wages is a not uncommon thing in the construction sector. Contractors and sub contractors and self employed trades can all suffer from a company in the supply line failing.
We feel for the chap, an honest man doing honest work expects honest pay. But to drive a digger into the hotel foyer and rip the place up!
As is sometimes the case with the internet, the video went a bit viral, then someone created a GoFundMe campaign for the driver, and now that’s trending as well. Certainly more than the £600 in lost wages. Certainly less than the tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds of damage.
Ah well. That’s modern life.
