National Day of Action against Wage Theft update!

As was mentioned last week, this Thursday (November 18) is the National Day of Action Against Wage Theft.  Our action this year is the first annual Wage Theft Awards, which is our opportunity to recognize several employers who failed to pay their employees over this last year.
