7 file unpaid wage claims after troubled LaconiaFest 2016


LACONIA — Seven people have filed for unpaid wage claims against the promoter of LaconiaFest.

Not only LaconiaFest but also the two corporations in which the promoter was associated with as well, according to the Laconia Daily Sun.

Kenneth D. Martinsen of Manchester filed his claim for $582.50 plus the $100 filing fee. A spokesperson from the N.H. Department of labor said on Friday that the total of the seven unpaid wage claims is $4,215.

LaconiaFest was an effort made by Michael Trainor to bring back well known rock bands to the annual Motorcycle Week at Weirs Beach.

There were issues between LaconiaFest organizers and Laconia before the unpaid wage claims because of the performances costing more money for the city than expected.

The city covered nearly $63,000 in public safety costs the promoter was supposed to pay.

Now it also appears at least seven people were not paid the wages they agreed upon.
