Stop Stolen Wages in Oregon: Pass SB 612

Can you imagine working hard at your job for a day, a week, or longer and having your boss tell you to "get lost" without paying you?

Thousands of workers in Oregon have their wages stolen from them by corner-cutting abusive employers. As it is now, most of the time, the employer can get away with it.

Many unregulated construction labor brokers are skirting the rules. These brokers keep their workers on informal books and do their business in the shadows.  

SB 612 closes the loopholes to make sure that the labor brokers are subject to the same oversight as any other Oregon company. Lifting them out of the shadows to lift the standards for us all.

The Oregon Coalition to End Wage Theft Asks you to:

Sign the petition to make sure that in the 21st century no one in Oregon is laboring without being paid.
