In late March, after a long negotiation and threats of further action, the CDT claimed $17,000 in owed overtime wages for two committee members.  The boss, Larry K of Great American Bagels, admits that he hasn’t paid any of his employees overtime wages at any point over the last five years.  He blames a clerical error and has promised that he will make good and pay all of the workers at Great American Bagels what they are owed.

Want to make sure that Larry K makes good on his word?  Call Great American Bagels at 206.763.4300 and ask him yourself!
