|On June 11, 2014, the Coalition for a Real Minimum Wage Increase launched a big demonstration in front of the Department of Labor. Workers from Indus Valley, who waited for more than 6 years for the Department of Labor to act, had held weekly pickets for a month. More than 200 workers and advocates participated in the pickets and protest. After more than a month, the workers achieved an initial victory. Our actions got Governor Cuomo’s administration to pay attention to the wage theft problem and also forced the Department of Labor to finally resolve the Indus Valley workers’ case. We’re not stopping here!
