TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (CNN) – Desperate times called for desperate measures for a Georgia bar owner struggling to pay her employees.

Customers at the Sand Bar have been stapling dollar bills on the walls and ceilings for years.

But now, owner Jennifer Knox has trouble paying her staff.

She recently decided to take down the dollar bills one by one, and give the cash to the employees.

It took three and half days to remove all the money. But in the end, Knox retrieved more than $3,700.

Some customers later donated extra money for the cause.
