Former Bad Bob's BBQ employee receives $5,474.30 check for back wages

Mary Fields received a check from the owner of Bad Bob's BBQ, aka Kemosabee's Inc., Friday supposedly worth every penny she's owed by the restaurant.

The former Bad Bob's BBQ and Kemosabee's employee received the $5,474.30 check from Mayuri Patel, who now lives in New Jersey. Fields is one of 22 employees the U.S. Department of Labor says is owed back wages for the restaurant's "minimum wage violations."

Fields deposited the check into her bank account Friday, but was told she will have to wait until Tuesday to see if it actually clears. The bank also told her to hold off on withdrawing the money until Friday.

Considering she currently only receives $113 a week in unemployment, if the check clears, the money would go a long way.

"It's a matter of seeing if it's good or not and if it is, I thank the woman from the bottom of my heart," Fields said. "If it's a good check, then the woman's true to her word. There's going to be a lot of people paid back that's helped me out, because like I said, $113 doesn't go very far."
