Santa's little helpers revolt over unpaid wages

From The Press - York's daily newspaper:
It's the last thing Santa needs two days before Christmas – police being called to investigate a row with unhappy elves. 
Officers were called to York’s Winter Wonderland in Exhibition Square, as tempers flared between managers and staff. 
Two workers say they have only been paid a fraction of their wages after working there for weeks, and police were called to the grotto this week as angry staff demanded payment.
The paper goes on to quote one of the unhappy elves:
“I had always been promised I would be paid at the end of the week, but we never got paid at all. They owe me about £1,000 in wages. They are still using my photograph for advertising too.”
Perhaps Alexei Sayle was right after all?
