Unions in NYC pushing for wage theft bill to hold subcontractors accountable

Unions across New York continue to push for the passage of legislation that would combat wage theft and ensure that all workers on the job get the pay they deserve.

On May 6, union carpenters and local elected officials rallied outside the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan to voice support for the Wage Theft Bill, companion legislation introduced in the state Assembly and state Senate, which would require all general contractors to be held liable for any wage theft and civil violations that a subcontractor may commit.
