BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - We've been getting complaints from contract workers hired by PG&E to help with the Camp Fire cleanup, about not getting paid.

"They're telling us nobody can get paid because PG&E has been bankrupt and we're like what are we going to do a lot of us are actually living in rooms like trying to get our per diem so we can pay for our rooms and pay to eat and everything and we wasn't getting none of that," Washington Alexander, worker from Louisiana said.

PG&E told us it hired a disaster recovery and environmental service, called Ashbritt.

The Ashbritt Chief of Staff, Gerardo Castillo, told Action News Now that his company hired ABC to do the work, and that Ashbritt paid them.

ABC has worked closely with Ashbritt to ensure that everyone has been paid their payroll," said Don Carter, ABC Owner.

ABC and Ashbritt said they paid all contractors for their work but not their per diem.

That money comes from PG&E. We asked PG&E when vendors and suppliers will be paid.

They directed us to a website and said PG&E will continue to keep contractors informed as they move forward with bankruptcy reorganization.
