In what has been described as a silent crime wave, billions of dollars worth of wages are stolen from from millions of workers in the US every year. The scope of these abuses is staggering: paying employees far less than the minimum wage, purposefully misclassifying employees and illegally denying overtime pay. As a response, Kim Bobo offers an incisive handbook for workers on how to prevent this flagrant exploitation. Includes analysis of the crisis and concrete solutions, with special attention to what the new presidential administration can achieve.
