Stephen Cha-Kim Testifies on Fast-Food Wage Theft

Skadden Fellow Stephen Cha-Kim of Make the Road New York testified June 27 at a City Council hearing about wage theft in New York’s fast-food industry. A Huffington Post article quoted Stephen as saying, “Some fast-food employers simply refuse to pay the time-and-a-half for hours over 40” (“Fast- Food Workers Denounce Wage Theft ‘Crime Wave’ at New York City Hearing,” June 27). “Others spread out pay for employees with more than 40 hours across multiple paychecks to avoid overtime, a blatant fiction we have seen commonly deployed in numerous other industries.”
