Rally to Demand Gov. Cuomo sign the SWEAT Bill
December 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
At Lafayette Sq, Buffalo, NY. Workers in NYS lose one billion dollars a year to wage theft. Undocumented people and low wage workers are among the most effected. Less than one percent of successful lawsuits against wage theft actually result in recovering lost wages because employers can hide their assets. The SWEAT Bill, if signed, will freeze the assets of employers when they steal wages.
Governor Cuomo has committed to fighting wage theft in press conferences and his reelection campaign, but this bill has been waiting for his signature since it passed the NY Assembly and Senate in June. The SWEAT Bill will expire at the end of this month.
We demand that Gov. Cuomo sign the SWEAT Bill! Organized by International Workers’ Solidarity Network – Buffalo.
