"For six years, a building supervisor in Spain quietly collected a $41,500 salary from his local government without showing up for work. And he would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for him getting an award for his 20 years of loyal service."
Recently, the 69 year old Joaquín García, was fined $30,000, the maximum fine amount allowed, that he must repay for his extended paid vacation from a water treatment plant in Cádiz.
Garcia’s attorney, speaking on his behalf, reportedly blamed bullying at his workplace for his absence. He also said there was no work to do.
Made almost $250k and only had to pay back 30k not bad lol
