Memphis Building Trades Helping Those In Need

Jul 25, 2011 (14:30:00)

Area 16 Special Olympics located in Desoto County, Mississippi, is an inspiration for all.  Thanks to the volunteers and sponsors, these young people have a chance to shine.  Mike Allen, business manager for Boiler Makers Local 263, approached the Memphis and West Tennessee Building and Construction Trades Council (MWTBCTC) with an idea to help this wonderful program.  Soon after, the MWTBCTC donated the money for a new sound system that was desperately needed.  We hope that this new sound system allows these Olympians to enjoy their games.  We all should look to them for our inspiration.

Day of Action on Wage Theft

Misclassified Workers One of the ways that many construction workers experience wage theft is being told they are independent contractors, and not employees. We call this misclassification, and it's a growing problem. But what is an independent contractor Read More...
New Mayor Meets With Labor

Nov 19, 2010 (11:26:00)

After several months of regular meetings with former Interim Mayor Joe Ford, newly elected Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell seems to understand the importance of continuing a relationship between the mayor’s office and local labor Unions.  On October 25th, by request, Mayor Luttrell met with local Labor Leaders.  After formal introductions and light discussion, each party understands the needs of the working men and women of this County.  The meeting being a success, both parties have agreed to meet regularly in the future.  

Federal Wage Theft Legislation Introduced

Justice for every worker.

Urge your member of Congress to support new national legislation to stop wage theft!

Ground-Breaking Federal Wage Theft Legislation Introduced
Urge your member of Congress to become a co-sponsor

 

Today thanks to the hard work of wage theft activists across the country, the ground-breaking Wage Theft Prevention and Community Partnerships Act was introduced in the House of Representatives. Wage theft has reached crisis proportions in the United States. A landmark study of low-wage workers conducted found that 15 percent of workers' wages are stolen on average each week. 

The legislation recognizes that with just 1,000 Wage and Hour Division investigators for the entire country, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) cannot stop wage theft by itself. If passed, the bill would establish a competitive grants program so that community groups can aid the USDOL in educating workers about their rights, and what they can do if they have had their wages stolen.

Just as police departments across the country have learned the value of community policing, the Department of Labor can become more effective in preventing wage theft by partnering with organizations that work most closely with low-wage workers.
