Our detemined wage theft committee is hard at work trying to track down employers who have cheated workers of their wages. As usual, the employers are promising to send checks right away–but nothing shows up in our mail box. Another much-too-common problem is that the worker is apt to have little information about the offending boss–a “house on Main Street” in a particular town may be all they know, or maybe the first name of the employer. Even with so little information, our wage theft sleuths often track them down!
Most workers live very close to the edge, financially, and just one or two missing pay checks may be enough to move them into the ranks of the homeless.
Many thanks to our dedicated committee! If you would like to help, just let us know.
