Last month, the Labor Coalition for Workers’ Rights and Economic Justice at theCUNY School of Law honored NMASS for its work to build a new labor movement. Coalition member Kristen Zapalac presented the award and emphasized NMASS’ unique and timely perspective that calls on all of us, as workers, across trade, ethnicity, race, and age, to come together to address our common exploitation. Several NMASS members were on hand to accept the honor and reminded the more than 100 gathered that even though workers continue to win important victories against wage theft, such gains are threatened as long as Governor Cuomo and the Department of Labor allow the epidemic to gain momentum by refusing to enforce and strengthen the labor law. The leadership of workers was credited with shaping current legislative proposals—now endorsed by more than 50 organizations statewide—that would strengthen labor law enforcement by making it easier for workers to collect stolen wages from employers. Member and former Domino’s worker Carlos Rodriguez Herrera also invited all attendees to join the national campaign to end mandatory overtime, pointing out how more and more, bosses use mandatory overtime to pay workers less money for more work at the expense of workers’ health, time, and pay. Led by women workers, the call to eliminate mandatory overtime can protect workers’ health and safety, alleviate unemployment, raise wages, create jobs, give workers more control over their time, and reduce the income inequality gap.
