Emmett mill workers expecting to get paychecks

EMMETT, Idaho (KBOI) - Laid off workers from the now closed Emerald Forest Products Mill are finally expected to receive their final paychecks this week.

Employees who went to collect their checks last Friday were told they didn't have them and could receive them by this week. The KBOI Truth Squad looked into the matter after receiving several complaints from employees. Now they've been told they can pick up their paychecks after 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

The mill closed even after it received $8 million in federal money as a part of the Stimulus Plan.
