“La Oficina del Fiscal de Distrito de Manhattan continuará asegurándose de que los trabajadores no sean estafados por empleadores codiciosos. Los neoyorquinos pueden denunciar y obtener justicia, independientemente de su estado migratorio y sin temor a ser deportados”, recordó el fiscal de distrito de Manhattan, Cyrus R. Vance.
More than a dozen workers have been awarded more than $100,000 in unpaid wages for their work on billionaire Richard Branson’s under-construction Midtown hotel, officials said Tuesday. Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance said his office had won the wages for 18 workers from Ampak Electrical Services, an unlicensed, uninsured subcontractor based on Staten Island.
“The Manhattan D.A.’s Office will continue to ensure that hard-working people aren’t stiffed by greedy employers,” said District Attorney Vance.
