Sign Rep. Ellison’s petition: End illegal federal contractor wage theft
The email below is from Rep. Keith Ellison, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, who represents Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District. Congressman Ellison started a petition on CREDO Mobilize, where activists can launch their own campaigns for progressive change. We strongly urge you to sign Rep. Ellison’s petition urging congressional Republicans to end wage theft by federal contractors.
Hard-working Americans should never have to worry that an employer will deny overtime pay, take money out of their paycheck, or engage in other practices known as “wage theft” — especially if that employer is a federal contractor.
But that’s exactly what’s happening right now. Although there are strong labor laws to punish this type of activity, federal contractors are some of the worst offenders when it comes to committing wage theft. However, 204 House Republicans continue to refuse our attempts to protect federal contract workers.
It’s time to tell Congressional Republicans to wake up and stop this illegal wage theft now.
Sign the petition: End illegal federal contractor wage theft.
