Resolution Supporting the NBC General Contractors Workers Fight Against Wage Theft
Whereas, immigrant workers have found conditions of discrimination and exploitation by NBC General Contractors through wage theft; and,
Whereas, these workers fought back with the support of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 6 and Local 595, by filing a class action lawsuit against NBC General Contractors in July 2008, the company with millions of dollars in unpaid wages and overtime; and,
Whereas, the Alameda County District Attorney’s office subsequently arrested and jailed the owner of NBC General Contractors on May 2, 2009, charging her with 48 felony counts, including wage theft, perjury, and insurance fraud.
Therefore be it resolved, that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party support the NBC workers’ campaign against wage theft and acknowledge the efforts of the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office in supporting the NBC General Contractors workers.
