workplace violations: Confronting the Gloves-Off Economy: America’s Broken Labor
Standards and How to Fix Them. The report compiled interviews with more than
4000 low-wage workers in New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. What they
described was an astounding number of violations from unpaid overtime to
employers not paying minimum wage and an overall lack of enforcement.
Bernhardt is the policy co-director for the advocacy group National Employment Law Project.
We also hear from Amy Carroll, an attorney at a community
center in Brooklyn, New York: Make the Road New York. The group represents thousands of
workers who have seen workplace violations firsthand.
