May 13: Wage Theft Campaign Launch
From the Workers' Action Centre web site:
What is Wage Theft?
Many of us are not earning enough to live on. We face unfair conditions at work every day. Too many employers don't pay us what we should be paid by law. Why is this allowed to happen? We deserve decent wages and fairness at work!
Our wages are stolen when:
* We are not paid for all the hours that we work, or we are not paid at all
* We are not paid minimum wage, overtime pay or for other legal rights
* We are wrongly treated as independent contractors or self employed
* We are charged a fee to get a job
When employers steal our wages and break the law -- this is wage theft!
Wage theft is unfair, affects our families and communities and keeps us in poverty!
The Workers' Action Centre is launching its wage theft campaign, with performances by Rehaset, Ruben 'Beny' Esguerra and Lishaiand. WAC leaders will talk about their fight to stop employers from stealing workers' wages.
