Q: I went to Little Rock Arkansas the week of June 19-25 I was supposed to get paid on July 10 but didn't. Now it's the 28

My company told me to go to Arkansas to go help out and I would get 10 dollars a hour for traveling fee and 12 dollars a hour for working there and I was supposed to get my money on July 10th so I could have my rent paid. I worked 72 hours and have a copy of my time card. It's the 28th now and I have evictions filled and up to neck in bills and every time I try to get things situated I keep on getting the run around about my check. I'm only 20 I haven't experienced this before and I don't know what to do.
