Reclaiming Stolen Wages and Demanding an End to Worker Retaliation WORKERS’ CENTER OF CENTRAL NEW YORK JOIN NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION TO STOP WAGE THEFT

WORKERS WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED WAGE THEFT AND WORKER’S RIGHTS ADVOCATES WILL HOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE AND WILL DO OUTREACH IN SYRACUSE

SYRACUSE, NY— Tired of being robbed on the job and then fired for stepping up, workers, with the support of their families and allies in the community are rising up across the country on Wednesday, November 18, to reclaim stolen wages, demand stronger wage protections, and an end to retaliation.

WHO: WORKERS’ CENTER OF CENTRAL NEW YORK
WHAT: Local workers and allies speak out at press conference about wage theft
WHERE: Syracuse Center for Peace and Social Justice (2013 E. Genesee St. 13210)
WHEN: Wednesday, November 18 at 12:30PM

Although $1 billion is recovered in stolen wages every year, around 80% of workers never recover their wages — wage theft is an epidemic. That is why groups across the country are engaging in collective action on this day to send a message to enforcement agencies and to employers that wage theft will not be tolerated in their communities.

Today, Interfaith Worker Justice, the national network of worker centers and interfaith groups leading the Day of Action, is also launching www.wagetheft.org — a redesigned website to help workers and organizations fight against wage theft.

For a complete list of actions across the country, visit www.iwj.org or join the kick-off press call at 10 a.m. Central (Call-in: (872) 240-3311 / Access Code: 847-129-437)
