WATCH & SHARE the story of Andres, a Long Beach restaurant worker as he shares how wage theft affects him and his family, why he is speaking out, and his message to local elected officials.

“I decided to talk because my co-workers are scared. Scared of losing their job. I am also scared but someone has to say something because it’s a problem that’s not only happening at the restaurants, it also happens at the hotels, the trucks, those who clean homes, also those who wait in front of Home Depot, the day laborers. They would be made to work but not paid.” – Andres
