.New York Gov. David Paterson signed a bill into law on Dec. 13 that creates more paperwork and regulatory hurdles for business owners.
“They say that New York is the safest big city in the world. Tell that to the thousands of New Yorkers who are robbed each week by their employers,” said Sen. Diane Savino (D-Staten Island/Brooklyn).
“For too long, penalties for employers who steal or underpay their workers have been so low that it was simply the cost of doing business,” Savino said.
