doing some freelancing for the meantime, just for survival...but don't think will last for long! im also looking around for other opportunities, but quite fewer these days
Explain to your boss first, you need some income to live, or you have no alternative but to put it in the hands of MOM, which you do not want to do, because it will cause him a great deal of trouble, he will get the message, tell him no more work, until he starts contributing to your life.
Do not give up the job, until you find a new one, just play along with your company until it is all settled, if you find another job, then you can consider the alternatives open to you.
Be careful if you are breaking the law, by freelancing, breaking the law is no excuse, if caught, you may have read in the papers that many construction workers were also not paid, they all sat outside MOM until they got their money.
It's the best i can do, I'm sure MOM will do something about it, just keep a low profile, and survive the best way you can.
You can drop me a PM if you like with your details CV, I cannot promise anything though, but if i can use you, i will let you know.
