Low-wage workers are routinely denied proper overtime pay and are often paid less than the minimum wage, according to a new study based on a survey of workers in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. The study, the most comprehensive examination of wage-law violations in a decade, also found that 68% of the workers interviewed had experienced at least one pay-related violation in the previous work week. The new study, “Broken Laws, Unprotected Workers,” was conducted in the first half of 2008. The study was financed by the Ford, Joyce, Haynes and Russell Sage Foundations.
