Wage Theft is a Crime: Stop Wage Theft in Shelby County

This petition had 208 supporters

Every day, low-wage workers in Memphis and Shelby County face the theft of their wages. Employers hire workers and then exploit them by refusing to pay for hours, days, or even weeks' worth of labor that they've performed. Shelby County Sheriff Mark Lutrell and District Attorney Bill Gibbons should establish a policy that recognizes the theft of wages as a crime, so that workers can file criminal charges against employers who refuse to pay them.
