TAKE ACTION: Tell Cherie Berry to crack down on wage theft!

Take Action! Tell Cherie Berry “Don’t let companies steal from their employees!”

Wage theft is a serious problem in North Carolina. Each year thousands of working North Carolinians are denied money they earned, but our state Department of Labor does very little to help. According to a new investigative report in the News & Observer, NCDOL allowed employers to get away with stealing more than $1M in wages from workers in 2014 alone.

The worst part of the wage theft situation is that the vast majority of wage theft occurs in industries that already pay low wages, which means that any stolen earnings can financially devastate working families already living on the edge. This is not only immoral; it’s illegal, and the NC Department of Labor has the authority to do something about it.

Send a letter asking NC Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry to uphold the law and make companies pay their workers!
