Wage theft occurs daily across the U.S. affecting thousands of families, especially those working in low wage jobs. Efforts to focus on industries and geography where wage and hour violations are prevalent show an evolution in enforcement. Whether the crackdown is done one by one or focuses on trends, it’s time to step up the probes to hold employers accountable.

And as if to underline the point that DOL Solicitor Patricia Smith made at a New York University Law School symposium on June 6, her old agency, the New York Labor Department, said on June 12 that it’s stepping up its wage-and-hour probes too.
