Stand w/NICE & Construction Workers for END to Wage Theft
Where: Corner of Bell Blvd & 38th Ave, Corner of Bell Blvd & 38th Ave, Bayside, Queens
Join with NICE and demand an end to the stealing of wages from hardworking construction workers by unscrupulous contractors and subcontractors!
Eight NICE members are currently battling their former employer, Well-S Industrial Inc., a construction subcontracting company, to recover almost $94,000 in unpaid wages and damages for work they performed at various sites in NYC and Long Island between October of 2010 and August of 2011.
The workers have been working with NICE organizers and lawyers from our wage theft clinic since 2011 to recover their wages. In October 2012, after months of failed negotiation attempts, the workers decided to take their fight to the courts.
The case is in discovery and the time is ripe to apply new pressure on the three defendants to settle this case once in for all.
Help us shame these employers and bring justice to these workers.
Let’s teach subcontractors and construction companies that a business model that relies on robbing and disrespecting immigrant workers is not acceptable!
