Michigan Unions Support New Legislation to Fight Wage Theft

LANSING – The Michigan AFL-CIO issued the following statement from President Ron Bieber supporting new legislation announced today by Sen. Jim Ananich (D-Flint) and Rep. Sam Singh (D-East Lansing) to fight wage theft in Michigan:

“Working people across Michigan are putting in the hours, going above and beyond to do a good job, and yet far too many are getting stiffed by their employers. It’s about time someone in Lansing stands up for them to make sure everyone who works hard for a living gets the pay they’ve earned. This legislation is long overdue, and Lansing Republicans should do the right thing and pass these bills right away.”
