Only a tiny amount, unless by "your" wages you mean the first officer's, in which case no you don't, as he's likely to be on a pay-to-fly program (EZY essentially sell the right-hand seat to low-time trainees).
In any case, as has been pointed out, he doesn't seem to have exactly show a great deal of professional decorum if, as reported, he managed to get on a verbal scrap with a check-in agent. Certainly not someone I would be giving consideration should I need legal counselling in Scotland.
By the way, it is not in anyone's interest[*] for flights to be delayed, not the least for the carrier itself.
[*] Except perhaps for the soldier in question, who will hopefully get an extra R&R day or two.
