Michael Hollander Comments on Need for Liens in Wage Theft Cases

Former Fellow Michael Hollander (’08) was quoted in a Politico article about states’ failure to recover money in wage theft cases (“Behind the Minimum Wage Fight, A Sweeping Failure to Enforce the Law,” Feb. 18). “Wage theft is the rule, not the exception, for low-wage workers,” Michael said, adding that a generalized wage lien would allow “a hold on the employer’s property from the beginning of the case so there’s not the opportunity for the employer to divest.”
