Top of the morning

Many of the lowest paid workers in the United States are not receiving the minimum wage and overtime pay that the law requires employers to provide.

The New York Times has the story on the study of workers in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles that found that 68 percent of the workers surveyed had at least one pay-related problem during the previous week.

Makes you wonder how widespread the practice of illegally denying employees their pay is in North Carolina. I’m sure that N.C. Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry will get right on that.
