Activists Rally Against Wage Theft

Unions, workers and immigrant rights activists rallied at the State Capitol to call for legislation to end wage theft. They’re backing a measure that would make it easier for workers to collect wages illegally denied by unscrupulous employers. They say wage theft is a major problem for low-income workers, especially women and immigrants, amounting to losses of more than a billion dollars a year in Los Angeles alone. Christopher Martinez reports from the State Capitol.
