As you may remember, in November the Committee asked District Attorney Jaime Esparza to meet with us to discuss the possibility of criminal prosecution against wage theft.
After multiple meetings over the last few months, a Committee member, with the support of the District Attorney, submitted an unprecedented wage theft complaint to the El Paso Police Department under the Texas Penal Code Theft of Services statute.
Watch this site to see what happens!
As the Committee grows and we find more effective ways to pressure employers who don’t pay, we are slowly but surely lowering the incidence of wage theft in El Paso. If you’re interested in getting involved in this important fight, please call us at 532-3799 x 17, or come to our weekly meetings!
