In March 2016, the PVWC and UMass Labor Center released a report, “Feeding Northampton,” that surveyed 235 Northampton workers in 85 out of 100 restaurants. The report found that 65% of workers who worked more than 40 hours a week did not receive overtime pay and 75% of workers did not earn a living wage ($13.18 per hour). In June 2016, twenty-five workers and residents testified at City Council about wage theft in the Northampton restaurant and construction industry. Join Mayor David Narkewicz and City Counselors Alisa Klein and Maureen Carney as they introduce an executive order and ordinance to stop wage theft in Northampton.
