On April 13th, workers around the state came forward to demand that the SWEAT bill be passed and signed into law.
In Buffalo, NY, former employees of Hotel Henry led the efforts.
The workers explained that their case is a perfect example of why we need the protections of the SWEAT bill. “We really want the SWEAT Bill enacted because what that is going to allow is to freeze the owner’s assets, so it gives us a fighting opportunity in order to collect those wages because unfortunately we’re experiencing this in real time,” said Gabriel Burgos Nieves, former Hotel Henry event manager.
