Hoy día, un compañero recuperó $700 de su sueldo no pagado. Recuperamos el dinero de un dueño de la propiedad donde hizo el trabajo, usando la herramienta de un embargo legal. El trabajador llegó al CDT entre 90 días de cuando terminó de trabajar y pusimos embargos en las dos propiedades donde estaba trabajando y tambien empezamos de cobrar el dinero del patrón. Uno de los dueños decidió de pagar casí inmediatamente porque quería vender la propiedad y no pudo con un embargo. Seguimos cobrando todo el dinero del patrón y del dueño de la otra propiedad.

OJO! Si eres un/a trabajador/a y tu patrón te debe dinero, ven entre 90 días al CDT para poner embargos sobre los terrenos donde estaban trabajando. Bajo la ley, los dueños tienen la ultima responsabilidad de pagar a l@s emplead@s…pero solamente si l@s emplead@s empiezen de cobrar el dinero entre 90 días del ultimo día de trabajo. Es una herramienta tan fuerte que tenemos — no la pierdan!

Today, a worker claimed $700 in unpaid wages. We claimed the wages from the owner of one of the properties where the worker was working, using a mechanic’s lien. The worker came to the Worker Defense Committee within 90 days of his last day of work and because of this we were able to put liens on the two properties where he was working.  One of the bosses paid the owed wages almost immediately, because he couldn’t sell his property with a lien on it.  The wage claim isn’t over: we will continue to claim the worker’s wages from his boss, as well as the other landowner.

IMPORTANT! If you’re a worker and your boss owes you money, come to the Worker Defense Committee withint 90 days of your last day of work to put liens on the properties where you were working. Under the law, the owners of the properties where you were working have ultimate responsibility to make sure that all people who are working on their property get paid…but only if the workers begin the wage claim process within 90 days of their last day worked. The mechanic’s lien is a powerful tool — don’t lose your chance to use it!
