NEW YORK DAILY NEWS || Sunday, November 23, 2014: New York is a great city, but as Marco Lino can attest, a workers’ paradise it is not. For four years, Lino, 53, worked 13 hours a day, six days a week stocking shelves at Rosemary’s Farm, a small grocery store in Flushing. His weekly salary was $350, that is, about $4.65 an hour. In October 2008 he was fired after protesting to his boss about his meager — and illegal — salary and filed a complaint at the Department of Labor. Six years have passed, and Lino is still waiting for justice.
“I am tired of waiting,” he said.
