Trust Businesses, They Won’t Steal from Employees

TipsFrances Kai-Hwa Wang reported on the NBC News website on the following:

“Nine Korean and two Latino restaurant workers have been awarded $2,672,657 in damages by the US District Court from Kum Gang San, a large and well-known Korean restaurant with multiple locations in New York …”

The article goes on to report “The court found that the restaurant and it’s owner, Ji Sung Yoo, did not pay workers minimum wage, required workers to work 10 to 12 hours 5 to 7 days a week without overtime pay and routinely withheld tips from customers who paid with credit cards. Workers also had to work without pay on their days off, including once having to pick cabbages and chili peppers on a farm. The restaurant also made workers create false time cards. Workers who refused were threatened with blacklisting, were not scheduled, or were forced to quit.”
