Protecting Day Workers from Labor Abuse

Washington Hispanic, news, Posted: Aug 08, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Day laborers find it more difficult every day to work because of the national economic recession and the lack of job opportunities. The situation makes it easier, however, for those looking for cheap labor to get away without paying fair wages. According to Washington Hispanic, a group of diverse community organizations and the Department of Labor are working together to fight the increase in abuse of daily workers who don't get paid after they have finished their jobs. They want their claims to be investigated more thoroughly, make it easier for them to report abuses and create a database of employers who deny payments to their workers.
