Wage Theft Resources
¡Reclamo! is a new tool that we hope will one day help every worker recover stolen wages.
For support recovering stolen wages please contact one of the organizations below:
- Make the Road New York
301 Grove Street
Brooklyn, New York 11237
T: (718) 418-7690
If you worked for public works projects, you should have earned the "prevailing wage." This is more than the minimum wage. Reclamo cannot help you with a public works project claim. Get legal help or more information.
