Action in Support of Moraima Ortiz

Pre-International May 15th Wave of Action in Support of Moraima Ortiz and all victims of Wage Theft

As we prepare for the International Strike for Low Wage workers on May 15th..please join the Laundry Workers Center and Occupy May Day NYC 2014 to support Moraima Ortiz and all victims of wage abuse. For 8 years, Ortiz worked in Kenny Bakery located on Dyckman St., Washington Heights where she suffered verbal and physical abuses at the hand of the owner and her brother.

Those abuses happened even in front of the customers. Allegations of wage theft were brought by Moraima Ortiz against the Company that refused to pay her the minimum salary in accordance to NYS law.

Recently due to community pressure from strong worker organizing the company relented and said it would negotiate with Ortiz on back wages but later cut off those negotiations when Ortiz and the organizers insisted that the company begin to pay all workers a minimum wage.

Please join us (EVERY Monday at 5:00pm) for a emergency action in Support of Moraima Ortiz and all victims of Wage Theft!
