NY Wage Protection Bill Approved By Legislature
ALBANY, N.Y. — The Assembly has given final legislative approval to a measure that toughens penalties on bosses who illegally withhold workers' pay.
Sen. Diane Savino, sponsor of the bill, says Gov. David Paterson is expected to sign it.
One survey estimates New York City employers shortchange their low-wage workers by almost $1 billion a year.
