One week from today, Hillsborough County Commission will consider a draft wage theft ordinance that will help workers who are victimized by businesses who do not pay them for their work.
This is a groundbreaking initiative and we call on all our brothers and sisters in the Labor movement and community activists to support this effort by attending next week’s County Commission meeting:
Hillsborough County Commission Meeting
Wednesday, May 20th, 9:00 AM
County Center (601 E. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa)
This ordinance, once past, will ensure workers get paid for their work, businesses can compete on a level playing field, and our local economy does not suffer. It’s the right thing to do!
