Cambridge Chronicle: Happy Lamb employees to protest wage theft, hostile work environment in Cambridge
On Wednesday, current and former workers of Happy Lamb Hot Pot demonstrated against owners who have fostered a hostile work environment and who are accused of stealing $800,000 in workers’ wages. We are proud to stand in solidarity with the Chinese Progressive Association and these workers.
Wage theft has become business as usual in Massachusetts. $700 million is stolen from workers every year in Massachusetts, an epidemic that has overwhelmed the capacity of our existing labor laws and enforcement mechanisms. We continue to call attention to wage theft so that lawmakers and leaders prioritize workers over business interests.
