Wage Theft in Florida: A Real Problem with Real Solutions

Wage Theft in Florida: A Real Problem with Real Solutions

Source:  Research Institute on Social and Economic Policy (RISEP)

This report is the first in a series describing and exposing the extent of wage violations in the state of Florida. This project is an initiative of the Florida Wage Theft Task Force (WTTF) whose mission is to find solutions to and increase public awareness about wage violations experienced by Florida’s working men and women. The report is being released for a countywide day of action against wage theft that the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners is expected to declare to coincide with an upcoming National Day of Action on November 18, 2010.

The focus of this report is on Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties, using information collected by two community worker centers and by the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The cases of wage violations reported by each agency were clear violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
