Help Stop Wage Theft: Urge Gov. Paterson to Sign Historic Bill!
This petition made change with 109 supporters!
Governor David Paterson's signature is all that stands in the way of an historic new wage theft bill becoming law. The state law would protect the more than 300,000 workers who are cheated out of their rightful pay by their employers to the tune of $1 billion a year (in New York City alone). Businesses regularly underpay employees, refuse to pay them overtime, or force them to work through breaks or work off the clock.
These same businesses are pressuring Governor Paterson not to sign the bill. You can help it pass! Write to Governor Paterson and tell him you want this bill to pass for the good of workers across the state.
