Governor Cuomo Vetoes Legislation Meant to Prevent Wage Theft (SWEAT Bill)

Each year more than one billion dollars is stolen from low-income workers in NY. After years of work, the state legislature passed the SWEAT bill to address this problem only to have Governor Cuomo veto it. We talk with Mahoma Lopez of the Laundry Workers Center about efforts this year to get the bill finally enacted. With Mark Dunlea for the Hudson Mohawk Radio Network.
