My main concern in all this is that Mr. Hamlet was hired as a maintenace man, but Mr. Thomas had him "watching kids".
Mr. Hamlet may be a nice man, but how does Mr. Thomas really know that? What if he had hired a maintenance man who was a pedofile? You don't ask just anybody this day and time to "watch kids" without doing a thorough criminal background check.
I'm sorry for these folks who didn't get paid, but much more serious things could have happened here because of a lack of judgement by Mr. Thomas.
