Wages & Hours Archives

$15 minimum wage becomes a reality for 1M New Yorkers

In December, New York City implemented a minimum wage increase that affects more than a million workers, including all fast food workers and more than 25,000 airport employees. The city's minimum wage for these workers increased by $2 per hour to $15 per hour, joining several other major cities where wages have already hit $15 per hour.

RECENT WAGE & HOUR SUCCESSES

We have a zero-tolerance approach to employers who refuse to pay the legal minimum wage, or who don't pay proper overtime wages, or who bully or take advantage in any way of New York's working men and women when it comes to wages, overtime, tipped wage credits for restaurant workers. I'm very proud and gratified to report our recent victories:

RECENT WAGE THEFT SUCCESSES

A working man or woman in New York who puts in an honest day's work expects and deserves an honest--and legal--day's pay.  It's unforgiveable when employers fail--or outright refuse--to pay at least the legal minimum wage, or overtime, or who abuse break time and other workers' rights.  We fight against this illegal and immoral behaviour, and we don't let our defendants off the hook until we have satisfaction for our clients. 

HARD HATS, CONSTRUCTION, DEMOLITION & SCAFFOLD WORKERS DESERVE BETTER

As this New York Post article will show, construction, demolition, and scaffold workers continue to be forced to work in unsafe conditions for illegally low wages.  New York's men and women in construction risk their lives and health on behalf of the city's economy, and deserve a lot better. There are too many scaffold accidents, construction hole collapses--too many broken and fractured backs and knees and shoulders. Too many deaths. It's time for New York to come to the aid of our construction, demolition, asbestos removal, and scaffold workers!

SALARIOS MAL PAGADOS: ¡NO TE ENOJES, VENGARSE!

El robo de salarios es una forma de intimidación financiera, donde los empleadores sin escrúpulos que se preocupan más por sus carteras que sus trabajadores doblan la ley hasta que se rompe. Lo terrible es que este tipo de conducta ilegal rompe las espaldas de los trabajadores de Nueva York y las mujeres que luchan para poner un techo sobre sus cabezas y comida en la mesa.
