Public officials can make a big difference in protecting workers, taxpayers and their communities.

Prequalification of bidders on public construction contracts, local ordinances that increase paycheck transparency and accountability on public works and development projects, and local prosecution of documented labor law violators are just a few of the steps that local elected officials can take to protect our communities from wage theft.

Stand up for local workers, law-abiding businesses, and taxpayers by signing the “pledge” to combat construction industry wage theft in your community today.

Once you sign, we’ll contact you to make sure you have the information and support necessary to take action in your community.

See who’s already signed the Pledge!

These government officials have signed the pledge to initiate or support actions that implement California’s labor, payroll and tax laws in their community and to hold employers who violate these laws accountable.
