Workers demand unpaid wages from house-painting boss

An ex-employee of a painting contractor has been trying for weeks to collect several hundred dollars in unpaid wages. The owner has refused. On Saturday July 19 2008, this worker and about 20 others from the Solidarity Network and Workers Defense Committee (Casa Latina) visited the boss’s house to deliver a final demand that he be paid in full for his work. We also distributed flyers to educate the boss’s neighbors about the problem. If he continues to refuse, we will take further action.
