Tell DOL: Don't Deport Filipino Teachers After School System Failed Them!

PGCPS Committed Wage Theft. DOL Stole their Dreams!

The recent settlement reached by the Department of Labor (DOL) and Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) over PGCPS’s violations of the H1B temporary foreign worker program is twice victimizing the teachers whose wages were illegally reduced.

Tell the DOL that these teachers should not be punished with job loss and deportation because of their employer’s willful failure to comply with the law.

Stand with these teachers whose actions helped safeguard American workers’ wages!
