Working Lunch: Trump resort under investigation for wage theft

Also, Maine is first state to ban Styrofoam


The attorney general of New York is going big game hunting and she has her sights set on President Donald Trump, accusing one of his golf course resorts of systematic wage theft. We’ll talk about how that will impact the visibility of an emerging issue.

Meanwhile, Maine has become the first state to ban Styrofoam, another important inflection point in the war on packaging. We’ll discuss why this matters not only politically, but how it impacts the move toward delivery.

And why don’t the unions have more success in organizing the restaurant industry? Some new research may shed some new light on a very old challenge. We’ll talk about those stories and wrap it up with the legislative scorecard.
