What is wage theft?
Wage theft occurs every time your employer does not promptly pay you the wages you are legally entitled to.
Whether your legal wage is determined by law (such as minimum wage, overtime, or prevailing wage laws) or by agreement, refusing to pay the right wage is theft, pure and simple.
Federal Minimum Wage: $7.25/hr
Wage theft takes many forms:
If you have been a victim of wage theft and you want more information on local resources or if you want to tell your story contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also schedule a group presentation in your area.
