Los Angeles is the wage theft capitol of the United States, where $26.2 million is stolen from workers every week. That amounts to $1.4 billion every year! The thieves are not sticking up bank tellers or picking pockets on the street. The thieves are employers who profit from not paying their hard working employees what they are owed. Watch this video to learn more.
When workers experience wage theft they are at higher risk of experiencing diabetes, hypertension and other chronic diseases. They’re also more likely to experience depression, anxiety and sleep deprivation.
“I worked in the same carwash and I wasn’t paid. I was living on tips and it is difficult to provide for a family on that,” said the carwash worker featured in the video.
When a worker actually wins a claim only 17% actually see a return on the money they are owed. Take the carwash worker in this video. Despite winning $67,000 in court he has yet to see a dime of what he is owed.
Wage theft is a crime. We need the city of Los Angeles to put an end to it. Support workers fighting to get wages they were never paid. Sign the petition today.
