The Wage Theft Preemption Bills (SB 926 & HB 957) are DEAD


South Florida Interfaith Worker Justice would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who supported our efforts to protect victims of wage theft during this session. Your assistance in actively pushing back against bills that would have made it even more difficult for workers to recover their stolen wages was instrumental in stopping these bills for the fourth year in a row. The 2014 Legislative session officially ended on Friday, May 2nd, and we can now once again focus on the important work of supporting workers and educating communities, businesses, and others on the effects of wage theft including its ripple effects that can be felt throughout local economies.

We want to thank you for calling legislators, signing and sharing our petition and faith leader letter, and actively getting involved through social media. Your unceasing interest and concern for workers have been both impressive and touching and we look forward to continuing to work with you on issues affecting workers, particularly low-wage workers, throughout our communities. Without your support and active voices, our work wouldn't be possible and we ask that you stay in touch with us to find even more ways to make our actions and your voices count.

Thank you so much for your continuous support!
