rachel351 :  Wow, that’s shady AF!

I’m sure the advice on here is sound, but a month of pay is a huge deal.  I would be researching your fair work ombdusman or equivalent (assuming you have one) and getting official advice from them as to the most likely way to resolve your issues.  They may also investigate the company.  

Sounds to me like the company has cash flow issues.  I do pays for my work and it is soo easy and automated, there is no excuse to delay it. 

And your co-worker is a dick, but let that be a lesson learned.

Could you ask to start the new job on Thursday?  Turn up to the old job on Wednesday, hopefully having been paid, and tell her you quit!

How did it end up going? Hopefully you got paid and are at your new job now!

rachel351 :  This is insane, and whether you showed up on that Wednesday to the old job or the new job, you’re entitled to your money. My husband worked for a non-profit whose executive director blew through the money that HE brought in via grants (which was her job in the first place but she wasn’t doing it) and worked for months without pay before resigning. He went through the Department of Labor and settled for 80% of the wages they owed him. I wish I were there for the meeting because I guantee I would have negotiated more, but that’s a moot point now.
