How employers cheat poor workers out of their pay — and get away with it

by staff

Ruth Palacios and Arturo Xelo, a married couple from Mexico, work at their fruit stand April 13, 2021, in the Corona neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York on Tuesday, April 13, 2021. They worked seven days a week for months disinfecting COVID-19 patient rooms at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, but weren’t paid overtime, Palacios says. The couple filed a federal lawsuit against the contractor that hired them and they’re now selling fruit to make ends meet. (Marshall Ritzel/AP)
