It is a hard thing to swallow to have known certain people and believe in them. But John has given all of his employees a good ride for at least 10 years. You all should have saved your money because sometimes it all comes to an end.
Their are certain people that I fell mostly sorry for. Those people are the people that John asked them to leave their stable job and go with him in business with him. These people know who they are and my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families. But don't worry what comes around goes around. And another thing why doesn't the FBI announce what the investigation is. I think the Chicago attorneys office is just fishing. And if thats the case shame on them. And if the outcome of this investigation pulls up nothing I think all of Krahl's employees should pull together and hire an attorney and sue the chicago attorneys office and the FBI for putting you all through this.

Thanks for the
HARLEY JOHN!!!!!!!
You Bastard! Kyle has been gone from Krahl for 3 years and gave 110% when he was there. How Bitter you sound, to have to bring up names of guys that are not here to defend themselves. You need to get a life and leave well enough alone, it is what it is and voicing your dumb ass opinions just makes you sound like you are a real ass. You can't even state your name but find it easy to post others. Only the Strong survive and Kyle being the Wonder Boy has done just that!!!

Wow, I have been involved in Chicago construction for over 30 years and you people seem to think that this stuff does not happen to an long standing company. You all should have paid more attention to what was going on in the office and at the work sites! This type of upper management does not just happen, it is built upon over years and the warning signs should have been all over the place.
I am sorry for the workers on the sites as well as the subcontractors as I have been there before.
Carry on as I am sure this will be all for the better.

Colorado empoyee....did you think the higher ups didn't know? Why did they stand by and let the subs hang out to dry like that? Why wasn't the accounting handled in Colorado and a profit deposit sent to Chicago? This is standard operations methods for Chicago construction companys. All the employees like you said didn't know and we trusted that the work we were doing for them was appreciated. So we placed more trust in them and let ourselves be blinded. Shame on us.
MJ.....not all of us were broom pushers. We trusted the executive branch of the company with our livlihoods and the promise of continued employment. To not get any fair warning or indication of this in light of the present market in construction was just unethical. Showed a complete lack of respect for those who were making them richer.

No Harley,
The big guy in Chicago saw an opportunity to expand his slimey operations in Denver.Whoever ran your office was well compensated and became part of the slime.One who operates ethically would have questioned these practices from the start and would have forced Chicago's office to operate differently in Denver.Outlandish salaries and perks cloud one's sense of moral compass.
Respect for hard working employees never existed in Paderta's shell game.

got harley are you anon.. fromthe other blog? to set the record straight, Paderta has been named in 2 Federal lawsuits in Chicgo. One his by the un named bank, Fifth Third and the other is Krahl's Bonding company. The lawsuit for the Bonding company says that Paderta walked away from his contracts without proper notice and left the bonding company on the hook for what looks like $50 million or so. in both cases Krahl is not named as defendant, Paderta is. I am waiting for the court date to be set and will post it. Goharley, when that happens, you bring the popcorn and I will bring the beer if you want to witness the beating Paderta should get.

Why don't you get a clue. The Krahl employees will be the last people to get any money from John. It will cost at least $5,000 to $10,000 dollars for a goood attorney to even take on a case like this. The Banks and the Feds are the first person in line to get their money from John. And for the Harley only the people who were kiss ass's and in John's pocket got a Harley. So you can take as if you were apart of the deceiption of this company going under.
