Just who was the sucker in this story from Down Under?

A tannery worker in New Zealand was accidently overpaid by his employer, receiving $201.00 per hour instead of the normal $13.00 per hour.

The error was discovered when another worker told management that his workmate was bragging about being overpaid.He was called in by his boss and was asked to repay the money. He agreed to repay the overpayment of $3620.00 at $75.00 a week, but then quit the job and refused to contine making repayments!

His employer made a claim to the Employment Relations Authority, who not only ordered the former worker to repay the money,but also ordered him to make a $500.00 contribution to legal costs.

Just who was the sucker?
