I Was A Victim Of Wage Theft

  • 1 min read

I often cried

I was young, and I needed the money.

I had recently graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and media communications and needed to work to pay my bills.

At 24 years old, I started my career in an international agency.

I worked more than 60 hours per week.

Back then, my supervisor used to say:

“That’s just the way it goes!”

“If you want a promotion (and a pay rise), you need to work hard.”

Back then, the younger me did not get paid for working overtime.

Today, I’d say it’s obviously “wage theft”.

Wage theft is when your employer doesn’t give you, as the worker, what they owe you.

In fact, it’s the largest form of theft in America.

Are you or were you also a victim of wage theft?
