The Internet got paid?

But he was the most famous man in all of Egypt!  What do you mean, "exposure" didn't put food on the table?

I presume his "bonus" is cigarettes.

We should give this guy a real challenge and a chance to make some serious moolah. Of course, we're gonna need a bigger boat.

Yeah, he needs a bit of that sweet internet honey. He provided lots of clicks.

If nothing else, the Evergiven was a good indicator of who sees enemy action in the dumbest shiat.

Was there... an expectation that he wouldn't be paid?

Pay in general takes about three weeks to cycle in most blue-collar/service jobs (as in, you'll get a paycheck every two weeks, but the hours that determine the number on that check are the ones you worked three weeks earlier) and an extra week for an unscheduled overtime request to go through is actually not bad at all.

Actually, bonuses are almost impossible to get in blue-collar work in my experience, so good on ya, dude.

// His job interviews are gonna be fun for basically the rest of his life.  "How do we know you're good with heavy equipment x?" "Allow me to refer you to the national news of every country in the world for a solid month of 2021".

Your post got me thinking so I checked into Egyptian labor law.  It turns out Egyptian employers can pay daily, weekly or monthly. It seems there is no 2 week pay period in Egyptian law.

I was also surprised to learn that workers in Egypt get
* 21 paid days off a year
* 13 public holidays
* regular 7% raises
* 6 months of paid sick leave!!!!
* 3 months of paid maternity leave for up to 3 kids
* If there are more than 100 employees, it is mandatory that the employer provide an in-house nursery or is responsible for placing the child in nursery care until the age of schooling.
* 60 days notice before you are laid off
* a minimum of 2 months severance

WTF America.

But that would cut into the obscenely excessive pay for our executives

Labor law is rarely enforced in Egypt and their court system is corrupt to the core via bribery and nepotism.

Those benefits look pretty good, but at the end of the work day they're in Egypt.

Sadly, this guy probably wouldn't have gotten paid had it not been news.

They said they paid him, but conveniently the reporter can't get a hold of him to confirm he has received the payment in the stated and/or expected amounts. Without that follow-up, I remain skeptical.
