Tell Legislators: Stop Wage Theft in Oregon
Add your voice to the hundreds of Oregonians who would like to see economic justice be served in our state.
You know the Coalition is sponsoring the Fair Wage Recovery Act (SB 718/HB 3083), which will give workers the tools they need to recover unpaid wages and will make it more difficult for unscrupulous employers to get away with wage theft.
But a big part of our fight to end wage theft relies on enforcement mechanisms. Right now, BOLI is able to recover less than a third of the monetary findings* it issues against bad employers. That's why in addition to the FWRA, we support the Oregon Labor Commissioner's own efforts to improve enforcement tools available to BOLI.
Stand with us. Tell legislators that you support pending measures to give BOLI and workers themselves better tools to stop wage theft.
Sign the online petition now! Add your voice to ours in the fight to end wage theft in Oregon.
