Lawsuit Seeks to Ensure Fair Wages for Migrant Workers

December 12, 2013

Centro de los Derechos del Migrante (CDM) filed a class-action lawsuit Wednesday against the Labor Department to ensure that migrant workers get fair wages. Earlier this year, the department instructed employers that they were required to pay H-2B visa workers market rate wages, but CDM says recently the department reversed this policy and told employers they could pay these workers wages below market value. The lawsuit seeks to overturn this policy change.
