When you have a job and do the work you expect to get paid. Rich Spicer says it didn't go that way for him when he did repair work for Woodbridge Alternative.

He did repair work for the group homes, and also for two Woodbridge employees, which included their rental properties and personal home.

Rich says he got paid in the beginning, but the last six months of work were a different story, as he said the unpaid bills totaled more than $1,300. He tells Troubleshooter Diane Wilson, "I have bills to pay just like everyone else. I just try and do a good job at a fair price all I ask is that I get paid for it when I'm done. I've never once charged them a late fee, interest or anything all I wanted was my bills paid."

Rich says he contacted his rep at Woodbridge Alternative about payment and when he says he didn't get a response, he turned to Troubleshooter Diane Wilson.

Rich says, "In one day after Diane got involved I got a response." Great news for Rich got payment for the work. He tells Troubleshooter Diane Wilson, "If it weren't for you, I wouldn't have gotten paid at all.

Now granted I didn't get paid all of it, but most of it and I give you all the credit. Rich got a total of $1,320 dollars. He says he was shorted by $60.00, but is happy he got the majority of his money.

As for Woodbridge Alternative, a rep said Rich Spicer was a contract employee and in no way did they ever refuse to pay him and they would resolve the issue immediately, which they did.

As for the $60.00 in question, the rep added they checked their records, and no additional money is owed.

Eyewitness News has an update to this story.

After it aired on March 16, a day later Rich Spicer got a $60 check in the mail from Woodbridge Alernative. He says he was very surpirsed and happy to get the check and now was paid the entire amount he says he was owed.
