According to a group of Texas migrant workers, the Monsanto Company, a leader in agribusiness, paid the workers substandard wages and did not follow through with promises they had made. The workers have filed a lawsuit against the company, alleging violations of their employee rights.
Most Americans would agree that our country is in the middle of a serious economic struggle. Jobs are hard to find, and those that are available often do not pay decent wages. The circumstances are made even worse when employers skim money from their workers' wages. This violation of employee rights seems to be a phenomenon that has become a problem nationwide. Wage theft may be done through stealing tips from servers, denying overtime pay for hours worked and even failing to pay minimum wage.
