Otisville Restaurant Employees Attempt to Collect Wages Due After Owner Skips Town

Down Home Diner employees attempt to collect wages due

* * UPDATE 9/27 * *

We’ve learned that owner Paul Williams has not left town as originally reported by his staff, and he had given permission for his employees to keep the restaurant open until it runs out of food. There’s more below in a video from WJRT.

The Down Home Diner in Otisville is still open for business, even though its owner has apparently skipped town. Employees of the Vienna Road restaurant are keeping it open in order to make back-wages they say they are owed.

According to one employee’s Facebook page, the staff was informed on Tuesday (9/24) that owner Paul Williams had simply left town. Since he allegedly hasn’t paid wages that the employees have earned, they vow to keep things going until they have been sufficiently compensated, or they run out of food.

The Down Home Diner is located at the corner of M-57 and M-15 in Otisville. Owner Paul Williams could not be reached for comment.

What do you think — Do these employees have the right to do this in order to collect the wages they say they are due, or are they crossing the line?
