IN THE NEWS 2009: April-June Digest

This quarter, MRNY won a three-year campaign against two exploitative supermarkets in
Brooklyn and recovered over $1.1 million in unpaid wages for workers. We also launched an innovative partnership with the New York State Department
of Labor office to implement a Wage Watch program that will monitor work
conditions throughout New York City and take action against employers who
violate the law. Also this spring, MRNY won a landmark civil rights complaint
against seven major pharmacy chains, which now are required to provide
translation and interpretation services in six languages.
