Union And Nonunion Workers Team Up Against Ongoing Exploitation In The Construction Industry

Juan Carlos Diaz and other members from NICE — New Immigrant Community Empowerment — said that they spent six months doing electrical work for a New Line Structures subcontractor called PEI Electrical Services, but never saw half the money they are owed.  

“We were always told to just keep waiting and waiting — ‘We’re going to finish, and then you’ll get paid,’” Diaz said. “The laws are not enough to protect our rights. We’re here to ask for stronger laws that punish contractors who are cheating workers.”
