  • Students affected by Phoenix issues speak out about money owed

    A pair of frustrated students are speaking out about the fact they still haven't been paid for work they did with the federal government due to delays caused by the Phoenix pay system.

    "I'm really, sort of, orphaned by the system ... it's taught me what it looks like when systems fail and there's not a lot of accountability," said Emma Gibson, a public affairs student at Carleton University.

    In its most recent update, the federal government says there are about 284,000 pay transactions still waiting to be processed, about a three-month backlog.

    That backlog includes Gibson, who is currently finishing her second government co-op placement and says she's still owed $3,300 from her first work term in the fall of 2016.
