Georgia resident receives his final paycheck in coins
Andreas Flaten, a resident from Georgia, US, has accused his former employer, A OK Walker Autoworks, of getting his final paycheck in the form of oil-covered pennies delivered on his driveway.
Mr Flaten told The New York Times: “It would be one thing if it was just pennies. I wish it was just pennies.”
He said that he worked as a manager at the car repair company, based in Peachtree City, south of Atlanta, before leaving his role back in November, 2020.
Mr Flaten’s girlfriend shared a video of the pennies on her Instagram account, attracting the attention of thousands of people.
Meanwhile, the owner of the auto repair company, Miles Walker, told CBS46 that he didn’t remember delivering the pennies on Mr Flaten’s driveway, and said: “It doesn’t matter — he got paid, that’s all that matters.”
