Protect Justice on the Job.
California cracked down on greedy corporations and CEOs that get rich from stealing workers’ paychecks with the Private Attorneys General Act. Now the corporate bandits are trying to erode this crucial path to justice for workers so they can go back to breaking the law and stealing our pay without any consequences.

What’s at Stake.
In most states, workers have nowhere to turn when their boss steals their wages, but California led the way to justice and protection for workers. The Private Attorneys General Act means California workers can go to court to collect their hard-earned wages and hold offender employers accountable for breaking the law. But greedy corporations and CEOs want to close this path to justice, so they can steal from workers without consequence. It’s another way corporations and CEOs are trying to rig the economy toward the rich and powerful.

It used to take months or years for workers to get justice when their wages were stolen, if they ever got a day in court. Enforcement and recovery were rare.Learn More
