Florida Has Not Held An Employer Responsible For Violating The Minimum Wage Since 2011
By The Nation,July11, 2016
In March of 2014, a nail-salon worker in Florida filed a complaint against her boss with the office of the state’s Republican attorney general, Pam Bondi. The salon worker, who wished to remain anonymous in this article for fear of retaliation by her former employer, told me that she had started at the salon the previous November and that, in addition to a variety of workplace abuses, her boss refused to pay his employees the state’s minimum wage, which was then $7.93 an hour.
