Support the NYS SWEAT Bill – No Wage Theft!

September 19, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

At NYS Dept of Labor Bureau, 65 Court St, Buffalo. Please come out and/or call Gov Cuomo – 518-474-8390 – to get him to sign this bill!!
>Wage theft is a huge issue for NYS workers: we lose $1 Billion
> annually to wage theft– more than any other kind of theft combined
> (robbery, car theft, you name it). Even when workers come forward and
> win court cases against scofflaw employers, they often cannot collect
> what they are owed, as there are many LEGAL loopholes for bosses to
> hide their assets.
>
> The SWEAT bill would help to shift the scales towards justice. It
> passed the legislature in June, but Cuomo still hasn’t signed it into
> law. He needs to sign it before December 31st or the bill will have to
> go back through the legislature. Cosponsored by Fight for $15, WNYCOSH, International Workers Solidarity
> Network, and of course the WNY Peace Center
