Wage theft occurs when a worker is not paid for their work, not paid the wages promised, or not paid what they are owed under the law. In certain low-wage sectors, in particular, wage theft is too common, constraining the ability of workers to provide for themselves and their families. To ensure the responsible use of local taxpayer dollars, would you support policies to disqualify contractors who have violated local, state, or federal wage and hour laws from receiving city contracts?
