Jacksonville-area state representative looks to crack down on wage theft

Jake Stofan writes:

"JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Fifteen percent of low wage workers in Florida report that they’ve fallen victim to wage theft, according to a study published by the Florida Policy Institute. [emphasis added]

'And that equates to about 220,000 working Floridians. So that’s a significant number of people throughout the state,' said Alexis Tsoukalas.

Tsoukalas authored a recent study by the Florida Policy Institute that looked into wage theft in Florida. Wage theft is the failure to pay workers the wages they are legally due.

Tsoukalas’ study found victims of wage theft are shorted about 18 percent of the minimum wage on average."
