NY man making $100K lived in company paint shed
A New York state report says a maintenance man who earned $100,000 last year working at a psychiatric centre has been living for free in a paint shed on company grounds and even had his mail delivered there.
A report issued Monday by the inspector general's office says the worker lived on the grounds of the Rockland Psychiatric Center in New York City's northern suburbs for three years.
It says he stayed in a back room of the shed and had a couch, microwave and refrigerator.
The centre's executive director told inspectors he didn't know the worker was living in the shed.
The worker is being charged $2,500 for the time he lived there.
Now he's living with his wife at a home in Pearl River, about five kilometres away.
