SWEAT Wage Theft Update

Each year more than a billion dollars is stolen from the paychecks of low-income workers in NY. The SWEAT bill, which Governor Cuomo vetoed two years ago, would increase the ability of workers to collect when they win judgements against employers for stolen wages. Tosh Anderson of the National Mobilization Against Sweatshops and Mahoma Lopez of the Laundry Workers Center discuss the push to get the legislature to pass the bill again before they adjourn for the summer. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network.
