Community "Wage and Hour Watchers" will walk along Roosevelt Avenue and enter stores to speak
to workers and employers about protections for workers under state labor law.
Employers found to be in violation of the law will be promptly reported to the
Department of Labor. Roosevelt Avenue in Queens has one of the highest
concentrations in New York City of businesses serving and
employing immigrants. The New York State
Department of Labor launched "Wage and Hour Watch" in April of this year, in
partnership with community-based
organizations and unions. It is the first
collaboration of this kind in the nation.
