Working Lunch: Wage theft laws ignored

Plus, a tip-pooling data scandal emerges at the DOL

Align Public Strategies explains the political and potential policy impact of a new investigative report that has gone viral in the labor community. The report shows how wage theft laws are not being enforced properly or, in some cases, completely ignored. Plus, the first of many reports detailing the gap between CEO and median worker pay present outcomes that are bad or worse than expected.

Align also discusses a scandal playing out at the Department of Labor over a hidden internal report that could impact the tip pooling rule, and this week’s legislative scorecard.
