    Ending Wage Theft in Los Angeles

    We seek to increase the resilience of low wage workers and their industries in LA by improving the enforcement of basic labor protections. We will design and pilot a wage theft prevention tool to help predict when and where wage theft occurs, so that City officials may wisely allocate resources to protect workers’ wages, and responsible employers from unfair competition. We will also produce industry case studies, to identify and learn from employers who create quality employment.
