Employers are stealing money from working people by cheating them of wages owed or not paying them at all. Failing to pay for even a few minutes of labor, such as not paying for time spent preparing a work station at the start of a shift, or for cleaning up and closing up at the end of a shift, can quickly add up. The Act to Prevent Wage Theft, Promote Employer Accountability, and Enhance Public Enforcement (SD 1464, HD 3) would increase responsibility of employers, protect wage rights, and level the playing field to ensure that all employers do their part in paying workers what they are due.
