The First Unitarian Society of Ithaca, The Sanctuary 306 N. Aurora Street Ithaca, NY 14850 (Corner of N. Aurora Street and Buffalo Street)
Today, employers are using the emergence of the gig-economy (broadly defined to refer to the entire rise of part-time and “precarious” work) to cut into workers' wages. Join us in downtown Ithaca to learn more about how companies are finding new ways to exploit workers in order to reduce costs, including the age-old practice of wage theft.
Hear from both the Tompkins County and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office as well as advocates, experts and those who have been victims of wage theft in a discussion on tools and practices for protecting workers’ rights.
Alexander J. Gancayco, Field Attorney, National Labor Relations Board, Region 3
(Please arrive around 5:30 pm to enjoy pizza and pre-program conversation; the session will begin promptly at 6:00 pm.)
