Thanks for the input guys, but at the time if I did not pay the room I was at risk of being fired of course and I could not lose my job even it was tough financially, that did a payroll deduction of the advance money which was there reason for giving me the relocation advance and then took it back how is that right? did not have a choice on that either? so unless there are some real sharp guys out there it looks like I'm screwed!!! just my luck had 2 strokes while in that ***heck hole and got diagnosed with terminal brain cancer on top of that just cant win!!! please if any one can help me fine a guy that really knows the ins and outs of the Davis bacon act for gov funded projects and contracts please let me know !! this has really hurt my family.
