“Ripped everyone off:” Crossing guards did not get paid after company shuts down
Wisconsin Personal Protection Services worked with Wauwatosa, West Allis, Menomonee Falls, Shorewood, and Waukesha.
Court records show the Department of Workforce Development filed two lawsuits against the company for over $90,000 dollars in delinquent unemployment taxes.
Despite the company’s closure, some crossing guards are still at work to make sure students cross safely.
“Me and my friend came out here because we couldn’t just leave the school,” said John Kramer, crossing guard.
Kramer and Dino Petrangelo were expecting their final paychecks but were not paid.
“I have direct deposit and zero was added to my account,” said Petrangelo, crossing guard.
Both applied with the City of Wauwatosa to be crossing guards. The city is looking to hire at least 34 crossing guards.
“We filled out the paperwork and I know the school wants us to stay,” said Kramer.
People can stop by Wauwatosa City Hall to apply or give their city Human Resources a call (414) 479-8954.
