Wage Theft

NETWORK believes that all workers deserve the wages they’ve earned, and although wage theft occurs in almost every sector of the workforce, it often goes unnoticed and unrecognized. Wage theft is the illegal underpayment or non-payment of workers wages. The most common forms of wage theft are not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, requiring workers to work off the clock, refusing to pay workers’ final paychecks, misclassifying employees as independent contracts to avoid paying minimum wage and overtime, not paying for breaks as required by state laws, and stealing tips.

Jobs and Labor Issues

Jobs and Labor IssuesCatholic Social Teaching says that human beings should not be a means to an end and that the economy must serve the people, not the other way around. NETWORK believes in the right to a living wage, a safe work environment, and meaningful work.
