Governor Cuomo, NYS Senators and NYS Assembly members: Take Immediate Action Against Wage Theft

We are New Yorkers who call upon Governor Cuomo and NYS legislators to take immediate action against wage theft. Even as the state's minimum wage rises, countless workers, union and non-union do not receive the current minimum wage, pay for all the hours they work, or all their tips. Even when they win Labor Department decisions or court judgments, workers often can't collect because scofflaw employers, like those of Indus Valley/Manhattan Valley restaurant can easily close businesses, re-incorporate under new names, and hide assets to avoid responsibility.

We demand that our state representatives:
• Pledge to boycott sweatshop businesses such as Indus Valley/Manhattan Valley
• Pass the SWEAT bill (Securing Wages Earned Against Theft) to prevent employers from easily transferring their assets to avoid their legal responsibilities and undermine those businesses that comply with the law
