Some Chattooga County workers are upset that their pay check won’t come before Christmas.  Several county workers told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio yesterday that they were counting on that paycheck for Christmas for their families.

The actual payday for county workers would be December 26th, the day after Christmas.  In the past the county has often given the employees their paychecks the day before a holiday instead of waiting until after the break.  When pay day fell on the day after Thanksgiving this year, county workers received their checks on Wednesday. 

One county worker told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio that they would have to resort to borrowing money from family or a pay day loan service in order to purchase their children Christmas gifts this year.
