Wage Theft Bill Passes Legislative Hurdle

A State Senate committee has approved a measure aimed at helping low-wage workers fight wage theft. The Assembly Labor Committee approved Assembly Bill 2416 - the “Wage Theft Recovery Act” - on a 4 to 2 vote. The measure would let low-wage workers put a wage lien on employer’s property when they file a wage theft complaint. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
